GOING GREEN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?
THINK TIERRA VERDE BAMBOO
It is time we all faced the truth about the environmental condition of our world, and of the world we will leave for future generations. The sad truth is that we are in an environmental crisis. Our forests are disappearing at an unprecedented rate. Our farm lands are polluted with pesticides and excess nitrogen. Rain run-off from these fields is choking the oxygen out of the water, and the pollutants are entering our food chain through the fish and mammals that depend on these very lands and rivers for sustenance.
However, there is some good news on the horizon, and it concerns an amazing grass plant that has been used by man since the dawn of time….BAMBOO.
The advantages of Bamboo are seemingly endless. It is a planet friendly, renewable, sustainable resource. During the growing cycle, the plant absorbs huge quantities of carbon from our atmosphere, replacing it with life giving oxygen. In fact, it releases 35% more Oxygen to the atmosphere than an equivalent stand of trees. It grows at an incredible rate. The average bamboo plant will reach maturity in 3 to 5 years.
Amazingly, no pesticides are used in growing Bamboo, as none are needed due to the chemical structure that later imparts anti-microbial properties to the yarn made from this plant.
When harvested, it need not be replanted. Bamboo is classed as a grass and will grow a new shoots from its extensive root system. This same root system plays a major role in preventing soil erosion.
When the harvested bamboo is converted into Tierra Verde Bambootm filament yarn, the result is a sumptuously plush yarn, with a sensuous hand, coupled with unparalleled clarity of color. In addition, Mother Nature has imbued Bamboo with antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, equivalent to, or better than the topical treatments used on oil based synthetic and cotton fabrics – such topical treatments can involve the use of heavy chemicals that leave a huge carbon footprint.
Indulge yourself in the natural luxury of Tierra Verde Bambootm filament yarn; not only do you get a sensuous hand that is good for the body and soul, but the yarn is naturally antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, super absorbent, and completely biodegradable….Tierra Verde Bambootm Filament yarn…truly a yarn for the 21st century.
In fact, when you select Tierra Verde Bambootm filament yarns, you, and your customers, as companies, and as individuals are making a direct contribution to the ecological well being of this tiny plant we call earth.
Yes, Tierra Verde Bambootm filament yarns are more expensive than oil based resins, fibers and yarns, but how do you put a value on the ability of an individual to leave this world in a better, cleaner and more stable environment than which we found it, just by incorporating this yarn in a fabric construction????
Also, as your customers select your fabrics made using Tierra Verde Bambootm filament yarns, their purchases will be supporting your industry as opposed to lining the pockets of the oil Barons, and radicals who wish us harm and are not bashful about using their oil profits to finance attempts at our destruction
Our Tierra Verde Bamboo tm filament yarns will absorb 41% more moisture than cotton. Also, as a natural part of the plant’s structure, filament Tierra Verde Bamboo has tiny, molecular channels that actually pull the moisture from the skin with rapid absorption into the atmosphere.
Dermatologists,world-wide, are reporting a major pandemic of skin cancer and Melanoma. Tragically, many of the children of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s are now falling victims to Melanoma – mostly as the result of excessive sun (UV) exposure as children and young adults.
News of the epidemic of melanoma has resulted in an explosion of sun screens and UV blocker sun lotions. These are fine for activities planned in the sunshine, but they must be reapplied every 3 to 4 hours of sun exposure……Also, what if you do not wish to apply this much lotion, or normal, everyday UV exposure??
Incredibly, Bamboo yarns offer superior-Ultraviolet light protection. A fabric made from Tierra Verde Bamboo has an ultraviolet ray penetration rate of 0.06% vs. cotton in a similarly constructed fabric, which has a UV penetration rate of 25%!
Tierra Verde yarns are ideal for everyday clothing that will provide supperior UV protection, along with comfort, fashion, and all the while contributing to an improving environment for our children.
Tierra Verde Bambootm Filament Yarns are a pathway to a “Greener” world, and that is something that all can live with, even if it costs us a little more.
