Fun Facts About Bamboo

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. It’s one of the most renewable and environmentally-friendly materials on the planet: it grows pesticide-free, self-regenerates after harvesting, and doesn’t need chemical treatments like other fabrics. Not only that, but bamboo fabric repels odors, wicks moisture, stays cooler than cotton (three degrees cooler, in fact), and is unbelievably soft. Bamboo baby footies, rompers, and pajamas are great options for parents because of these properties.

Research has shown bamboo fabric helps to regulate body temperature and it is often used in clothing for babies, children and people of all ages. It also creates a protective barrier against skin irritations (especially eczema) due to its antibacterial properties. The natural fibers of bamboo are naturally resistant to bacteria, mold, mildew and mites which makes it an ideal choice for baby clothing. Now that you know more about the benefits of this miracle plant, it’s time to discover 10 fun facts about bamboo:
