Bamboo is amazingly the fastest growing plant on earth, and is not a tree but a grass. Once harvested it can replenish itself with the speed of a whopping 120 cm per day. Most of it is grown organically (no use of insecticides or pesticides), and depending on the area needs little to no watering or fertilizing. If that is not enough, bamboo does absorb more carbon dioxide from the air than cotton or timber.
None of the 42 Bamboo species that Panda's eat, are used in Life & Form Bamboo Towels. Because of these features, Bamboo is a very interesting substitute for the heavy water consuming cotton making process (cotton needs 10 times more water to produce 2 pounds of fabric compared to Bamboo). That makes bamboo by far more greener than cotton.
