Raw Society Hair + The Planet
Banana hair is based on practices that not only protect environmental health, but also strive to improve it. As a result, choosing banana hair helps prevent damage to our water ways and oceans, protect species diversity and combat climate change. It is bio-degradable; it can be re-cycled into other products once you are finished with it, such as textile/fabric, paper, etc and can be completely decomposed in the soil by micro-organisms and sunlight without decomposing into any pollutants.
It is eco-friendly because chemicals used are non-toxic to humans and the chemical manufacturing processes are closed-loop so 99.5% of the chemicals used during the processing are captured and recycled to be used again. There is no trace of any chemical on the fibres after the extraction process.
Banana Hair + The People
Banana farms are of major economic importance to many developing countries and vital to the livelihoods and food security of millions of small-scale farmers and processors. They include over 1 billion people in the Banana sector farmers Worldwide. By supporting this additional use of Banana hair we boost the sector and increase the banana farmers contribution to economic growth, we provide more jobs alongside fighting plastic pollution and creating cleaner air, particularly for those residing within a close proximity of Banana Farms.
About The Banana Tree
Banana Platations are large factories for photosynthesis which reduces greenhouse gases. The leaves of the banana tree are one of the largest on the planet (up to 9m in length and 2m wide) allowing for a large surface area and therefore, this high rate of photosynthesis. During photosynthesis Carbon is extracted from the atmosphere and oxygen exhaled; thus the entire surrounding area where the Banana is grown becomes a very healthy area to reside in with clean purified air.
Banana Trees are the largest and longest living plants growing on earth! They continuously sprout from the roots allowing a large coverage and fresh growth. Encouraging planting more banana trees is a natural way we can reduce the Global warming and compensate the Carbon Emissions. If we are more densely surrounded by Banana Trees it creates more beautiful greenery, purified air and the increase of a health food is produced.
To make up for the loss of trees in the past decade, we would need to plant 130 million hectares. Banana trees generate approximately 40% of the world’s oxygen requirements.
In one year, an average single banana tree exhales enough oxygen for the survival of a family of four for an entire year and inhales 10 to 12 kilograms of CO2. One hectare of banana trees can absorb 5 – 6 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.
Thank you for choosing the environment.
