New products made from bamboo fiber have been
added to the current range of eco-friendly products. If this term is not well
known for you and wants to get more information, this is a brief summary of the
most important one.
The bamboo fiber is made from the starchy pulp of
bamboo plants. As for the cultivation, bamboo grows very fast – just about
eight weeks. Plus, the bamboo regenerates from its own roots. Thus, it does not
need to be re-planted. In comparison with other plants, the cultivation of
bamboo does not need too much water and pesticides. Therefore, it is considered
as eco-friendly and very environmentally sustainable material. Because the
bamboo fiber in combination with corn flour creates the mixture, which is later
mixed with resin, it allows the material be adhered and biologically decomposed
at the end.
Thanks to its excellent properties, bamboo fiber
plates, cups and serving dishes are extremely durable, resistant to moisture and
heat. Although they are not suitable for use in a microwave oven, they prove its
durability for everyday use, even when are washed in dishwashers.
