What Makes Bamboo Lanyards Eco-Friendly?

What Makes Bamboo Lanyards Eco-Friendly?

It seems that you can’t open a magazine, blog or website without reading an article or two about how to go green. Retailers and restaurants are moving towards more earth-friendly appeal, accessories, and cuisine, and you may have wondered how you can participate with style and affordability.

You don't have to drink slimy green smoothies, drive a hybrid car or overflow your apartment with succulents and house plants to go green. You can go green each day while showing your respect to Mother Earth, with minimal effort and consciousness.

Bamboo is a cellulose fiber that is easily broken down in the soil preventing environmental pollution. It can be replanted within a fraction of the amount of years of most timber, seven years compared to 30-50 years. You don't have to be a panda bear to love bamboo. As one of the fasting growing plants on the planet, you can go green simply and easily every day, while keeping your credentials safely tucked away

Go Green With Your Lanyard

Bamboo is one of the most sustainable resources and environmentally sound plants on Earth. Due to its rapid re-growth cycle and 25% higher yield than timber it can be harvested with almost no impact on the environment. It can be grown in soil damaged by overgrazing or poor agricultural technique, truly making bamboo lanyards an Earth-friendly product.

Why Bamboo Lanyards?

Let’s say you buy a lanyard made out of polyester, which is just another fancy word for plastic.

After you are done using it and decide to throw it away it will lay in the landfill and perish after many days under the sun. When the sun hits plastic it breaks down into smaller fragments, these smaller fragments are called microplastics and they contaminate the soil and harm wild life

Microplastics are very small and often get confused as food so fish and birds end up consuming them. This creates the sensation that they are in full when in fact they are not getting the nourishment that they need causing them to starve to death.

Unlike plastic, bamboo is a natural resource. This means that our lanyards composed out of bamboo will biodegrade without contaminating the soil and will not harm wildlife if it gets consumed, in fact, many animals have bamboo in their diets, just look at pandas
