Why Natural is not eco-friendly
It is a common misconception that using natural thatch is a more green solution than using synthetic thatch.
Here are some reasons why natural thatch is not a sustainable option:
- Fumigation involving pesticides and other toxic chemicals is necessary to prevent insects, rodents, mould, moss and mildew
- To create natural thatch, leaves need to be harvested repeatedly, damaging the environment and leading to the endangering of rare species of trees in some areas
- To maintain a ‘fresh look’, natural thatch needs to be replaced every 3 to 4 years, leading to regular damage to the environment
