The Third Word Press has a strong eco vision, and hopes to promote an ambitious mission to help preserve the planet for future generations, please help us do this!
We are starting a campaign to promote the replacement of cotton products with bamboo products, as it has all the right qualities to make clothes and disposable products such as food and drink containers and utensils, as well as sanitary products. Bamboo grows across the tropics, where (excluding The United States) cotton is also grown, but the real benefit lies in the fact that bamboo uses a third of the water, none of the fetilisers and a tenth of the space. Cotton covers 2% of the Earth's surface, and this extra space could be put to a variety of agricultural, rewilding, or developent uses, all of which will be needed in the future.
We are running an awareness raising initiative, and conducting a survey to send to retailers to encourage them to stock bamboo products, so please, fill in this survey and spread the word.
