Our Bamboo Torches are made from Chinese Moso bamboo sticks. The Bamboo Torches create a cosy mood light without the need for a socket or batteries. These torches are solar-powered and turn on automatically when it gets dark outside. Besides the cosy atmosphere, the Bamboo Torches are thus also fire-safe.
The Bamboo Torches have a length of 58 cm, a diameter of 9 cm and are solar-powered. Installation is easy to do in, for example, a flowerbed, sand or grass. Ideal for a beautiful summer evening or a dark winter night. As the Bamboo Torches contain no wiring, you can also easily move them around.
We also have the Bamboo Torches in our inspiration garden and showroom. Here, you can view the Bamboo Torches and, if necessary, take them directly from our warehouse. Because we buy our products directly from the source, you are assured of the best price and unique bamboo materials.
With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
More about Bamboo
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
