In the US as well as globally, grass is more abundant than trees. Grass also replenishes itself much faster. Trees used to make paper take 15 years from seed to mature before it is harvested.
Grass cost at least 40% less than trees to acquire, produce, and maintain when considering labor, time, machinery, transportation requirements as well as availability and accessibility.
Ideally, each paper that is made from grass is directly reducing the number of trees cut down to make paper as GrassTB's purpose is not to create a new industry but yet just reinventing the way we make paper!
With deforestation, the plastic waste crisis and Global Warming at the forefront of our world's environmental discussions, the introduction of our discovery and its positive environmental impacts make us a very appealing and socially responsible company.
