The value of a bamboo straw

Straws from Root 8 are made of bamboo fibre.

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world. And it cleans the air as it grows.

How? Bamboo releases 30% more oxygen and absorbs more carbon dioxide than any other plant on Earth.

The speed with which a plant grows determines how much CO2 it can absorb in a given time.

Bamboo can grow up to 1.2 meters a day.

Therefore, when planting more bamboo, we can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

And guess what? Even when used in architecture or structures, bamboo still absorbs CO2.

This is, the virtuous circle of growing bamboo.
