Bamboo and wood available at Lordship Lane Carpets is sourced by suppliers who have FSC certification. FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.
Growing by up to 1 metre per day, Bamboo has rightly gained a reputation as an eco-friendly, highly renewable source of material. Compared to wood it grows much faster because bamboo is actually a grass. It takes about 3–5 years for bamboo to reach full maturity. Traditional hard woods can take 20 – 120 years. Bamboo can be harvested without the need to replant because the root system is left intact when it is harvested. In its natural environment it will need no irrigation, no pesticides, and no fertiliser. Bamboo can absorb up to 70% more carbon per year than a hardwood forest. All these factors keep the carbon footprint low. Bamboo is extremely hard wearing and moisture resistant making it an ideal choice for kitchens and bathrooms.
