Eco-design: Renew

Eco-Design
     
  EKOBO chose bamboo because it is one of our earth’s most renewable resources. It is a fast-growing, naturally regenerative woody grass which flourishes organically without pesticides, fertilisers or herbicides. It can be continuously harvested every 3 years without damaging the plant or the surrounding environment.

Bamboo is a viable solution to the challenge of deforestation as it recycles carbon dioxide and produces 30% more oxygen than trees in a similar situation (1 hectar of bamboo sequesters 62 tons of CO2/year - source: J.Janssen, Technical University Eindhoven, 2000).
