Bamboo is extremely friendly to the environment due to the fact that it is an organic natural resource and is biodegradable, this among all of its unequalled qualities. Bamboo grows so fast that it is by far the most sustainable source of natural fiber for apparel. When harvested it will grow a new shoot from its extensive roots system with no need for additional replantation or cultivation. Bamboo naturally protects itself from crop-destroying insects, so there is no need for hazardous pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Bamboo also requires little irrigation or no irrigation at all.
