Fibre-reinforced plastics are composite materials that are made by combining plastics (like PP or ABS) with natural fibres (like bamboo fibre or wheat straw). This combination provides a more flexible and durable material and products that can serve you for a longer time. Adding natural fibres also means that less thermoplastic is used in the production process. Giving that these products also weigh less than traditional plastic items, their transportation requires less fuel which makes them even more sustainable. Wheat straw is an agricultural by-product, it is the stalk that is left behind after wheat grains are harvested. Reusing this natural waste also reduces the need for disposal, which is often accomplished through burning it, contributing to air pollution. Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource. It's fast-growing and prolific – it can be harvested after only two to five years, and new culms emerge from the roots each spring. WHEAT STRAW PLASTIC / BAMBOO FIBRE PLASTIC GO GREEN 13
