Bamboo vs. Plastic

The planet is facing a catastrophic environmental disaster that is being accelerated by many different reasons. The environmental crisis is mainly caused by human activity and much of the impact is due to the products we use, how we use the products and what they are made of. Many products are made from plastic. Plastic can take over 1000 years to decompose. This means that all of the plastic that has ever been produced has ended up in the environment is still present in one form or another. Plastic production has been a booming industry for the last 70 years.

Ask yourself in your daily life how many products do you use that are made of plastic. Well we know the answer to that question, but did you know that alternative more sustainable products are becoming popular?

Plastic products are being replaced by bamboo. The reason is because bamboo is more sustainable than plastic. Bamboo can take from 3 years to 4 months to decompose. Bamboo is an eco-friendly material. Also not only is bamboo more sustainable, bamboo is also very durable.

How strong is bamboo?

  1. Bamboo has a higher tensile strength than many alloys of steel.
  2. Bamboo has higher compressive strength than many mixtures of concrete.
  3. Bamboo has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than graphite.

So bamboo is a super material that is not only sustainable, but also very strong. This is why Fewer Cards is made from bamboo. Make your next card be Fewer Cards.
