Why should we use Bamboo instead of plastic? | ALT Retail

Feb 28th 2020 at 6:01 AM
Plastic is ubiquitous and being used inevitably by everyone every day. Because plastic is easy and cheap to produce, durable and lightweight. And due to its versatility, plastic has gained popularity. The use-and-throw approach to plastic has made a huge impact on our environment today. And what's more frightening is that people are not aware that plastic affects health and have overlooked its side effects. This colossal dependence and reliance on plastic has led to the production of 348 million tonnes of plastic a year. Shockingly, only 10% of the plastic is being reused or recycled. And the rest of the 90% plastic is being dumped into landfills.

On the other hand, the problem caused by the plastic doesn't stop with land but is extended to oceans and seas putting the marine life at great risk. Nearly 8 million metric tons of plastic waste is found in the oceans and seas which contribute to almost 80% of marine waste. As a result of this, more than 650 marine species are affected by plastic waste and are at risk. Scientists have predicted by 2050, the ocean will be flooded with plastics more than fishes if we continue at this rate.

To overcome this crisis, we all should start using sustainable products that are biodegradable and reduce the usage of plastic in our daily lives. The best alternative to replace plastic is Bamboo! Bamboo is an incredible plant/tree. Why should we use Bamboo?
  • Bamboo is Sustainable and Fast-growing plant
  • Bamboo is highly durable
