Why is bamboo ethical?
* Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet, growing up to a metre per day. The Chinese have a saying:
‘the only way to control its spread is to eat the shoots’
Bamboo is also incredibly strong with a tensile strength greater that that of steel. There is a 300 metre long suspension bridge in South China which hangs from bamboo cables fastened over a canyon; it does not have a single metal nail, screw or bolt in its construction.
Because Panda bears do not eat this type of bamboo the production will never affect this endangered species.
These beautiful urns are specifically designed for burial, you can feel totally reassured that by placing your loved one’s ashes into the urn and then burying it, it will start to naturally biodegrade allowing the gentle release of ashes back into the soil.
