We’ve all had plenty of restless summer nights, unable to sleep. It’s a catch-22 — turn on the air conditioner (if you have one) and it’s too noisy to sleep, but leave it off and it’s too hot to sleep. However, have you ever considered that the reason you’re having such a large amount of trouble becoming comfortable actually has to do a lot with the bed you’re sleeping on? You may think its the outside environment, but the right bedding can truly make a world of difference.
Solution = Bamboo Sheets
I know what you’re thinking — bamboo?!?? Isn’t that for pandas? Well, yes, pandas do like bamboo, but Moso bamboo (different type of bamboo than the one that is eaten) also serves as one of the best, if not the best fabrics in existence.
Bamboo fabric has millions of micro gaps in the fiber which allow it to adjust to your body temperature. Compared to cotton sheets, they wick more moisture away and allow more air to flow in and out; all while using no synthetic materials or chemical treatments. Bamboo fabric is as natural as it gets — it’s like the expensive synthetic fabrics used these days to make breathable bedding and clothing, but with two advantages: 1. bamboo is better and 2., it’s entirely natural.
Because bamboo fabric is a natural product, it has numerous environmental benefits. By purchasing bamboo sheets and bedding, you are not contributing the the growing negative impacts of mass production — there are factories that churn out thousands upon thousands of cotton sheets every hour, which is something that simply does not exist with bamboo sheets. Bamboo sheets are made responsibly, with workers that are paid fair wages — unfortunately that cannot be said for many of the cotton bedding manufacturers.
One specific environmental benefit of bamboo is the amount of oxygen it produces. Pound per pound, bamboo processes multitudes more carbon dioxide into oxygen (and hence cleaning up our air) than an equivalent size tree. Everybody always talks about planting trees for their positive environmental impact, but maybe what they really should be talking about is planting bamboo!
Bamboo fabrics are also biodegradable, which cannot be said for most bedding options these days. It’s already anti-microbial, so no synthetic chemicals or treatments are necessary.
So, this all sounds great. But where do I find bamboo sheets?
