Renewable Resources

Materials like bamboo are an excellent renewable resource that can help to reduce your carbon footprint. Bamboo requires no fertilizer, no ground disturbance, and can grow more than two feet a day. New packaging made of mushroom root fiber, labels made of banana paper, even trees (when properly managed) are a great renewable resource.

Biodegradable Packaging
