Slate is the Best Ecological Option

New Site Rawsome is Officially Open!

Throughout all the stages of its life span, natural slate will remain environmentally friendly. Due to this, it has become one of the best natural choices for sustainable buildings. Below, we have listed some reasons as to why natural slate is the best ecological option:

  • Natural – as slate is a mineral product, it is 100% natural. Its simple and efficient production process results in slate having a low environmental impact.
  • Reusable – natural slate is a material which can be easily recycled at the end of its life.
  • No chemical emissions – natural slate is subject only to extraction and working processes. As it does not need any artificial materials or chemical products, it makes slate a sustainable alternative for any project.
  • Durable – slate has a durability of over 100 years, making it the most resistant material used for roofing. Natural slate will perform better than any other roofing material.

Slate is a popular material used for an array of designs, from roofing to flooring, to landscaping to house ware . As it is a natural material, slate has been regarded as one of the best materials. Created of fine-grained metamorphic rock composed of sedimentary or volcanic ash deposits, it is a material which has been used for centuries.

Benefits of Bamboo as a Sustainable Material

New Site Rawsome is Officially Open!

As a result of a movement towards sustainability, bamboo has become increasingly popular in recent years.

  • Renewable resource – bamboo can be harvested in one to five years depending on the species. In comparison, hardwoods like oak trees take at least forty years before they can be harvested. Over one million acres of forests are lost each week due to deforestation. As a substitute for hardwoods, bamboo offers a versatile solution to drastically reduce this number and protect our forests.
  • Fast growth rate – some species of bamboo will grow as much as three feet (1 meter) per day! Labelled the fastest growing plant on earth, bamboo does not require replanting. When harvested, it will grow a new shoot as a result of its extensive root system and help protect soil from erosion.
  • No chemical pesticides or fertilisers – bamboo requires no agricultural chemicals to grow.
  • Absorbs greenhouse gases – bamboo sequesters carbon dioxide from the environment and produces 35% more oxygen than its equivalent size of trees. Large-scale bamboo plantations can become effective “carbon sinks” or areas designed to reduce CO2 from the atmosphere. When bamboo fibres are used to construct buildings, the carbon is sequestered (stored away) for the lifetime of that building.
  • Grows everywhere – bamboo is a tough and durable plant that can be grown throughout the world and thrives even in harsh conditions from low wetlands to higher elevations in the mountains. With over 1000 species, bamboo can be found in nearly every region in the world.

WHAT IS ORGANIC COTTON?

New Site Rawsome is Officially Open!

Organic cotton is cotton that is produced and certified to organic agricultural standards. Its production sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs. Importantly organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Instead, it combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved.

  • Reduces environmental footprint – No toxic chemicals are used in the growing of organic cotton. It doesn’t damage the soil, has less impact on the air, and uses 88% less water and 62% less energy. Conventional cotton uses about 16% of the world’s insecticides and 7% of pesticides.
  • Model for the future – By 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages. But organic cotton is 80% rain-fed, which reduces pressure on local water sources. The absence of chemicals also means that water is cleaner and safer. Cotton is often grown in water-scarce areas using irrigation and it takes 2,700 litres of water to make a conventional cotton t-shirt.
  • Fair price for sustainability – When you buy organic cotton you are investing in water conservation, cleaner air, better soil.
  • Impacts our food system – Organic cotton is grown from organic cotton seeds. Cotton seed oil is used in a variety of food products such as cookies, chips and vegetable oil. So while cotton fibre is not something we put in our body, the by-product can make its way into our diets.
  • You can make a difference – Caring for the world and the people we share it with is a life choice. Choosing organic cotton is part of this choice. In 2015, 26 million metric tonnes of cotton was produced globally, much of it for the apparel industry. Organic cotton makes up less than 1% of this. By choosing organic over conventional cotton you have the purchasing power to influence brands, manufacturers and even farmers. So let’s change this number.
