Environmental gain
Flax is a fast growing plant (barely 100 days between seeding and maturity of the stem) cultivated following a sustainable agriculture: it grows naturally with very few chemicals (compared to other crops requiring more inputs) and without irrigation. It also fits perfectly into the cycle of crop rotation. Moreover, all parts of the plant are used (no waste). Therefore, being up to 100% natural, our products are recyclable, biodegradable and / or compostable.
