Bamboo and sugarcane are excellent resources for the production of paper products. Here are our top 8 reasons why these plants make great paper. #1. Soft – Bamboo and sugarcane fibers used to make paper produce a very soft paper which is a lot softer than most recycled paper products. # 2. Strong – Bamboo and sugarcane fibers are very strong and therefore produce strong paper products. #3. Biodegradable – Bamboo and sugarcane fibers quickly dissolve back into the earth so it’s safe for all disposal systems. #4. Rapidly Renewable and Sustainable – Sugarcane and bamboo are grasses, not hardwoods and are some of the fastest growing grasses on earth. The average bamboo plant can grow up to 24 inches a day. Due to bamboo’s deep root system, replanting is not necessary. Once bamboo is cut, the stem is left and the bamboo can grow back in 3-4 months! #5.
