kilos of CO2 compensated so far

Why bamboo?

Bamboo acts as a natural carbon sink: a reservoir that accumulates and stores the CO2 that is emitted by our daily activities. Other important natural carbon sinks are trees and the ocean.

The rapid growth rate of bamboo makes it an affordable and attractive solution for carbon footprint compensation. Depending on the species planted (there are over 1000 variations of bamboo), bamboo can grow up to 121 centimeters per day!

A bamboo plant can live up to 120 years, depending on the species. Maintenance cost are relatively low and the bamboo plants generate new bamboo shoots after being cut. Compensating your carbon footprint through bamboo is thus a very sustainable option!
