Organically grown bamboo is environmentally friendly and sustainable and is becoming increasingly popular. Due to its various eco-friendly characteristics, a growing number of eco-conscious people prefer bamboo rayon sheets over those made from conventional cotton fabric.
Organically grown bamboo is grown without pesticides, fertilizers, or other harmful chemicals
Moreover, bamboo plants flourish without pesticides. There is a natural bio-agent in bamboo and people commonly refer to as “bamboo Kun” and it has antimicrobial and antifungal properties. Bamboo Kun also makes the bamboo plant resistant to pests.
Furthermore, bamboo is actually a type of grass. Just like many other types of grass plants, bamboo does not require fertilizers to grow well. Compare this with conventional non-organic cotton crops that account for more than 10% of global fertilizer sales. Hence, you will want bamboo sheets if you desire products that are free from harmful chemicals.
Bamboo replenishes itself and helps to prevent soil erosion and landslides
One of the attributes of organically grown bamboo is that it can regenerate and replenish itself. Farmers harvest bamboo by cutting the stalks above the root. New stalks spontaneously regrow from the base of the plant as replacements. Since harvesters do not pull out bamboo crops by the root, this plant is excellent for soil conservation, helping to prevent soil erosion and landslides. In contrast, farmers usually replant conventional cotton crops after every year to combat disease and weevils.
Organically grown bamboo consumes less water and does not need irrigation
Also, bamboo plants consume only a third of the water that conventional cotton plants do. In fact, bamboo does not need irrigation and uses water more efficiently than other plants.
Bamboo grows fast enough to ensure sustainable harvests
Additionally, bamboo grows extremely fast (up to 3 feet a day). In fact, it holds the Guinness World Record as the fastest growing plant! This unique combination of being self-replenishing and fast-growing means that bamboo crops produce continuous and sustainable harvests.
Fabric made from organically grown bamboo is an outstanding, eco-friendly alternative to cotton
With so many environmentally friendly properties, bamboo bed sheets that are made from organically grown bamboo are outstanding alternatives to those made from more conventional, mainstream cotton. When it comes to bamboo sheets Queen is the most popular size. However, other sizes are also available to perfectly fit the measurements of your bed.
As added reassurance, it is good for you to select your sustainable bamboo sheets from suppliers that are accountable to eco-standards organizations such as Green America and Oeko-Tex Made in Green. Thank you for doing your part to save the earth today!
