Bambus – eine nachhaltige Alternative zu Holz und Plastik - NIKIN EU

Bamboo – a sustainable alternative to wood and plastic

Bamboo as a diverse and sustainable alternative? The plant-based raw material is not only used in the production of our TreeSocks - - - it has many other great benefits.

The daily requirement of bamboo for a giant panda is up to 40 kilograms. The plant, which belongs to the sweet grass family, not only serves as a source of food for the fluffy bears, but also as an alternative to wood. Furniture, decoration and accessories, everyday products such as toothbrushes or hairbrushes, as well as parquet floors and other products are now made from the woody stalks of this impressive plant.

The best feature of bamboo? Its rapid growth! “Fast” is almost an understatement: the “Moso Bamboo” grows up to one meter per day! The popular sweet grass is found in tropical areas around the equator and varies in the height of its grasses; these range from a few centimeters to 40 meters. Bamboo that is used in this country is largely harvested on plantations in China.

It's not just its super-fast growth that makes bamboo sustainable. Take a look at the following factors that make this tropical plant stand out as a sustainable material and therefore a suitable alternative to conventional wood.


  • Toughness. Since bamboo is very robust, unlike coffee or bananas, for example, pesticides or artificial irrigation methods can be largely avoided when growing it. This has a less stressful impact on workers and the environment.
  • Flexibility. The wood of bamboo is hard and dense on the one hand and light and flexible on the other. The plant is therefore ideal as long-lasting furniture and building material.
  • Growth. Due to its rapid growth, bamboo stores a lot of CO2. Unlike clearing, there is no risk of endangering the population when harvesting bamboo.


Not only wood, but also plastic can be replaced with bamboo. The sweet grass is considered an alternative to plastic - the starting product for plastic.

Mon frère a principalement utilisé le bambou pour aménager son jardin. Je souhaite plutôt utiliser la pierre. Je vais faire appel à un professionnel pour un aménagement total de l’espace et des créations en pierre sur mesures.
