Robin Low is the founder and CEO of Greenyarn, a Boston company that sells eco-friendly fabrics and clothing. Greenyarn's best-known product is Eco-fabric, which contains nanoparticles of bamboo charcoal that absorb odor, kill bacteria, and have anti-static properties.
How is Greenyarn "green"? Most tree forests need 60 or more years to regrow, but Greenyarn's bamboo forests in Taiwan regenerate in only four years. The more bamboo is cut, the better it grows, and the more it helps conserve water and soil. The growers use no fertilizers or pesticides. And the charcoal is produced in traditional bamboo-fired kilns.
