Eco Brushes: Painting for the Planet

There really is no excuse not to consider the environmental effects of home decorating when so much of what we need can be sourced responsibly, right down to the brushes we paint our walls with! Bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly materials in existence. Its fast growth and versatility make it perfect for use in place of other, slowly-grown timbers such as oak. In fact, Bamboo isn’t a tree but a fast-growing woody perennial, and it can grow up to 3ft in a single day with little fertiliser, water, or additional care. It is hard, hard-wearing, and lightweight.

6 Brilliant reasons to Buy Bamboo

  1. Deforestation is reduced as the plant is so easily replaced in so little time
  2. Harvests occur every five years
  3. Bamboo absorbs carbon as it grows, cleaning the environment for us!
  4. There is no soil erosion between harvests as the roots of the plant are left intact
  5. Produces 35% more oxygen than trees
  6. Throughout the lifetime of a tree, it produces 20 times more timber than the tree          would
