Why is it made of pine needles?
It is troublesome biomass & an outlet needs to be created for evacuating these needles from the Himalayas. The Pinus Roxburghii, from which the pine needles shed are fast growing, require less water & spoil their surrounding by preventing growth.
Why pine needles?
Baby animals & plants lose their lives, silent micro eco – systems are destroyed in the forest fires caused by Pine Needles. Soil loses its water holding capacity & massive emissions are generated which hastens the next fire due to Serotiny process.
Why not bamboo ?
Bamboo is a crop which is edible and fit for human consumption. By taking away Bamboo from a community that is used to consuming it for their food and other purposes, we might be depriving them what is commonly known as crop diversion.
Each visible pine needle fiber has been picked up by a village worker’s hands, deep in the Himalayan jungles and its presence in your mug’s material means that somewhere a potential forest fire was averted.
Finally, you can control the end-of-life option for your own mugs. This means you can safely bury it in your garden soil and these mugs will return to nature within a few years whereas plastic would stay for a thousand years.
