Why do you use bamboo to make disposable cutlery? Is the bamboo an eco-friendly material? Many customers are concerned about this kinds of problems.
Unlike all trees, individual bamboo culms emerge from the ground at their full diameter and grow to their full height in a single growing season of three to four months. In the next year, the pulpy wall of each culm slowly hardens. During the third year, the culm hardens further. The shoot is now a fully mature culm. Over the next 2–5 years (depending on species), fungus begins to form on the outside of the culm, which eventually penetrates and overcomes the culm. Around 5–8 years later, the fungal growths cause the culm to collapse and decay. This brief life means culms are ready for harvest and suitable for use within about 3–7 years. We conduct orderly harvest and process based on the growth characteristics of bamboo.
All in all, bamboo is a super sustainable alternative due to its naturally renewing properties, it is really stand out when compared to other materials:
