Bamboo is Comfortable, Attractive and Sustainable

When shopping for printed lanyards, the most ecologically responsible choice of material is bamboo. Fibers made from pulped bamboo can now be made into fabric that is indistinguishable from other textiles in comfort, appearance and durability.

Many shoppers are making a commendable effort to buy as many green products as possible, and the current selection of lanyards has some options for them. The best of these new lanyard materials is bamboo fiber, a sustainable, low-footprint material that is completely biodegradable.

Since bamboo is a grass, it grows much faster than other forms of wood. Bamboo harvesters do not need to wait decades for old growth forest to develop. Instead, a harvest of bamboo can be obtained every year without depleting the growing stock.

Bamboo also contains natural anti-bacterial substances that retard rotting, contributing to the long life of the material. Custom lanyards made of bamboo will last a long time, retaining their color for their full lifespans.

This fiber also has a soft, cotton-like feel that some customers find more comfortable than plastic fibers. It does not have the shiny look of some plastics, appearing more like a conventional fabric. Cut edges are never sharp, and the ends of the fibers do not feel prickly.

For a green material that is comfortable, sustainable and durable, consider personalised lanyards of bamboo.
