Are you tired of hearing me tell you about how much I love bamboo? I can’t help it. I really love bamboo. Since I’ve told you a few other times about how much I love it and some of the amazing products made with bamboo, I figured it was time I tell you about why I love it. Bamboo is so versatile that you will be amazed by the number of ways you can fall in love. I have received a few products in exchange for sharing some information with you.
It is a renewable resource.
I write an earth friendly blog so I suppose you already knew that this was one reason I love bamboo. What you may not know is that bamboo is actually a grass. I don’t know about you but I always think of it as almost like a tree. Bamboo is mainly found in East Asia and South East Asia but can be found in many other parts of the world. Since some stalks of bamboo can grow up to 4 feet a day, it is one of the most eco-friendly resources on the planet. It has been called the “loving stalk” because of it’s ability to keep the soil strong, the air clean and the environment healthy.
It is very breathable.
The very nature of the bamboo viscose makes it very breathable which also makes it a very cool fabric. Perfect for me because I am always warm. I love that it wicks moisture away from your body keeping you dry. That also makes it perfect as activewear or those hot sunny days. Bamboo clothing keeps you 3 degrees cooler than cotton. Not only does it help keep you cool but it can also act as a natural insulator to help keep you warm.
Odor Resistant and Hypoallergenic
Do I really need to say more here? I hate having smelly clothes and I sweat a lot.
Soft. So soft. Ridiculously soft. I’m in love.
Have I mentioned that bamboo fabric is soft? I’m talking twice as soft as cotton. The first time I reviewed some things from Cariloha, I was in awe. I couldn’t believe there was actually anything made that is that unbelievably soft.
From clothing to building supplies, flooring to bed sheets, blankets to who knows what next, bamboo is an incredibly versatile grass. Plus, it’s pretty, right? With so many uses for an amazingly green plant, our earth can benefit in so many ways. I love Cariloha because they carry a variety of different bamboo products. From mom to baby and everyone in between, there really is something for everyone.
If you are curious about how something that looks like a tree can become clothing, sheets and so much more, this video showing the entire process is awesome.
If you can’t tell, I’m a huge fan of bamboo anything. In fact, I finally went and bought myself a bamboo cutting board that I’ve been wanting for awhile. I’m also a huge Cariloha fan. I love the quality of their products and the variety that they offer.
