Lucky Bamboo

An eco friendly tip in regards to home goods: Choosing products made from bamboo like sheets have many benefits for the user and the environment!

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants worldwide. It regenerates quickly without the need for replanting, grows densely and has higher yields per acre than cotton. Bamboo plantations absorb 35% more carbon dioxide than the equivalent stand of trees helping to clear pollution from our air. It requires no artificial chemicals in their cultivation thus rendering it a sustainable, environmentally friendly resource! It does not require additional watering and gets what it needs from rainfall.

Bamboo is a very soft texture comparable to silk or cashmere. Bamboo fabric naturally resists mold, mildew and odors. This makes it non-irritating, perfect for sensitive skin.

Next time you are in the market for new linens consider bamboo products.
