Bamboo is one of the largest members of the grass family and is the fastest growing woody plant on the planet. Its growth rate varies according to the soil and climate, and is best known as a major food source for pandas. Bamboo is also used for culinary and medicinal purposes in many parts of the world, as well for construction materials, furniture, textiles, musical instruments, bicycles, clothing and more. As a packaging material, bamboo is strong, durable and sustainable. Dell uses bamboo to package smartphones, laptops, tablets and other computer devices.
Because of its fast growth rate (up to 24 inches a day), bamboo can be harvested faster than hardwoods, making the source extremely renewable. Its strength is truly enduring, and the material's flexibility makes it a versatile solution for a wide range of packaging needs.
Oil-based, virgin plastic materials such as PET, PVC and polystyrene can emit harmful toxins during production as well as in landfills, where they can take years to break down, if at all. The more nonrenewable materials that are wasted, the more negative impact packaging has on the environment and the health of the planet. Using bamboo instead of plastic helps significantly reduce our carbon footprint.
Sinyoo Packaging focus on Eco-friendly for more than 15 years, and we are now developping more and more packaging with bamboo material so that it will help our better environment.
