Go Bamboo Pegs are designed to weather harsh UV conditions and are kind on your clothes.

Plastic clothes pegs often make their way onto beaches by falling off the line and getting flushed down drains and out to sea by storm water. Go Bamboo clothes pegs are an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic pegs and are sturdy and strong and, unlike wooden pegs, won’t stain light coloured clothes because of bamboo’s low tannin content.

WHY GO BAMBOO?

  • can absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere between 7-30% more effectively than an equivalent area of forest
  • emits up to 30% more oxygen than equivalent areas of trees
  • has the tensile strength of steel
  • needs no pesticides, fertiliser and isn’t routinely irrigated
  • is strong, biodegradable and beautiful
  • is fast growing with some varieties growing up to a meter a day
  • has a yield six times greater than regular trees
  • needs half as much water as regular trees
  • doesn’t need fertilisers or pesticides
  • has no genetically modified variants

The bamboo used in Go Bamboo products is Moso bamboo. This variety isn’t one of the 30 varieties eaten by the Giant and Red Pandas, as it is too large and woody.

By considerately planting more bamboo we can help to cut global levels of carbon dioxide and reduce global warming. By choosing bamboo as an alternative to plastic you are making an active choice to reduce your carbon footprint.
