...more Kapok, more trees, more fresh air, less CO2
Kapok, also known as plant down, is the silky soft and extremely light hollow fiber of the kapok tree. Kapok is similar to down and thus isolates excellently. Furthermore kapok is water-repellent due to its natural wax film and dries quickly. The fiber repels moths and mites and is antimicrobial and hypoallergenic.
Under sustainability aspects kapok scores too! The kapok trees are wild growing and neither fertilized nor sprayed. Kapok is no food and as the trees natural habitat are hills, they don't occupy farmland. At harvest time, the fruit capsules are handpicked by locals. Kapok is biodegradable and naturally vegan.
