Bamboo is one of the most underutilized natural resources and it is available plentifully throughout Southeast Asia. There are a number of advantages that can be achieved by manufacturing products from bamboo. For example, utilisation of the bamboo plant itself: its large global supply and low cost as a natural resource, its renewability, its effective land consumption and its high conversion of greenhouse gases into oxygen. Bamboo also don’t need replanting, pesticides, fertilisers or a lot of water. Bamboo also yields 50 times as much fiber per acre as cotton and has natural antibacterial and biodegradable properties.
To create our Bamboo Fibre Water Bottles we use natural bamboo fibre, which special qualities allow for creating light-weight, durable and biodegradable items. The manufacturing process starts from an eco-friendly mechanical extraction of cellulose fiber from the pulp of bamboo plants. Extracted fibre is then moulded with pp into water bottles using high pressure machinery, If you ever dispose your eplanita bamboo bottle and it gets under the soil and after 2 years it will largely biodegrade. From the nature, back to the nature.
