Carboon is a social enterprise that will plant, grow, nurture one bamboo plant from every £1 raised through donations, carbon off-setting or buying bamboo products through our shop. We want to create amazing spaces throughout the UK, where people can come and relax, a garden of zen, a place that makes you feel closer to nature, a holiday feel without being away, promoting a healthy body and mind.
"We are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change, and the last generation that can do anything about it."
Without jeopardising UK nature
Being aware that bamboo is not native to the UK, and it being a intrusive plant, our aim is to transform grassland that was once used for cattle or feed into bamboo gardens incorporating wild flowers and grasses, so butterfly's and other insects and wildlife to thrive.
Incorporating Bamboo Into Your Everyday Lives
By this point, you may be wondering what materials you can replace with this renewable and sustainable plant. With its vast array of benefits, customers are on the hunt for bamboo alternatives in a variety of household items. Examples include bamboo toothbrushes, makeup brushes, furniture, coffee cups, kitchen utensils, plastic straw alternatives, and flooring, just to name a few!
Furthermore, although bamboo is a light material, it is also incredibly durable when compared to steel and wood, making it an efficient construction material. This is especially common in Asia, where bamboo is often used in building projects and roads to reinforce concrete. Growing much faster than the hardwood and softwood alternatives, bamboo is an obvious choice. Businesses Using Bamboo
Some companies have already started to take action when it comes to swapping out less sustainable materials with bamboo.
For example, the eco-conscious company, Who Gives a Crap, incorporates recycled bamboo and bamboo-sugarcane materials into their blended-material toilet paper. Targeting such a wasteful industry with a variety of sustainable, bamboo-based products has helped this company set innovative trends in the world of business when it comes to creating more environmental awareness. Grass over Bamboo
Though bamboo is in the grass family in can offer so much more to the environment, than a nice looking lawn! one hectare of grass can take 1 ton of carbon out of the atmosphere where the same size area of bamboo can take up to 17 tones of carbon out the atmosphere.
