Bamboo and You: The Benefits of Bamboo Sheets
Have you been hearing about the wave of bamboo bedding cropping up online and in magazines? They seem to be all the rage and on top of everyone’s wish list. But what’s all the hype about? We’re going to go over bamboo, it’s uses and benefits, and why you need to switch to 100% bamboo sheets today!
What is bamboo?
Bamboo is a plant that grows in heavy concentration in East and Southeast Asia, though there are a few species growing in North America. The plant is usually hollow and green in color, with a woody texture and rings going up the stalk. They grow quickly, some up to one foot per day, and can range in height from four to six inches for small species and 130 feet for larger.
How is it used?
There are many ways that bamboo can be utilized. For instance, the stalks and seeds of some bamboo species are eaten in some Asian countries, and the raw leaves provide food for animals. The most notable use is as building materials for houses, boats, furniture, gardening tools, flooring and more.
On top of this, bamboo has recently been incorporated into bedding. Bamboo sheets have taken the world by storm as an eco-friendly option to traditional bedsheets. But what benefits are there to switching to bamboo sheets?
What are its benefits?
The benefits of bamboo on it’s own are extensive, but bamboo sheets have unique properties that make them an incredible choice for your home. To start, bamboo sheets are extremely durable, as they’re wrinkle, stain, and odor resistant. Due to the organic nature, they are hypoallergenic, leading to a restful night’s sleep for allergy sufferers.
One of the coolest (pun intended) features of these sheets is that they’re temperature regulating. That’s right, bamboo sheets can regulate heat, allowing them to be cooler than cotton. They’re also more breathable, flexible, and lightweight, making them the optimal choice for those who have trouble staying cool at night.
Should you switch to bamboo sheets?
So, after all this, should you switch to bamboo sheets? We say yes! Not only is bamboo a great choice for the earth conscious, but it has numerous natural benefits that cotton just can’t compete with. Bamboo is the clear winner!
