Bamboo In Clothing

Friday, April 1st, 2011
bamboo in clothing sheets and towels is being promoted accurately

Bamboo is such a great natural resource that it may soon replace many wood and plastic products.  It can grow in poor soil and with little water.  Unlike trees and other plants, bamboo actually improves the ground that it lives in, adding nutrients back into the soil instead of leeching them out.  It grows quickly, up to two feet a day, and creates an intricate network of roots that is excellent for erosion control.

Bamboo has a higher tensile strength than steel.  It is very strong and perfectly suited for many things.

-People use it to build fences, houses, boats, furniture, and other structures that must hold up against the elements and subjection to heavy weights.

-Bamboo is used as a source of food in some cultures.  The shoots are commonly used in soups and stir fries.  The seeds are eaten as a source of whole grain.  Bamboo is a good source of dietary fiber, protein, B vitamins, potassium, and other nutrients that should be consumed for optimal health.

-Bamboo cookware is very popular right now, but has actually been around for centuries.  Bamboo is used to make toothpicks and chopsticks, rice steamers, utensils, plates, bowls, mats, trays, rice steamers, cutting boards, and more.  It is preferred over wood for use in the kitchen because it absorbs very little moisture.  This protects it from swelling, splitting or warping.

-Bamboo is commonly used around the home.  You can get bamboo shoe racks, plate racks, dish drainers, picture frames, bins, baskets, buckets, rugs, end tables, and desks.  Some people even use bamboo to make recreational products like baseball bats, lacrosse sticks, volleyball nets, and more.

-Bamboo even possesses medicinal qualities.  It is used in speed healing and treating infection.  It can be consumed and used as an anti-inflammatory, which helps to treat pain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, respiratory diseases, and more.  It is considered to be a good source of potassium, protein and fiber for diabetics who cannot have foods with high glucose content.

-Bamboo is very versatile as a raw product.  It can be used to make fabric that rivals cotton in softness and wear.  It can be used to make paper, scaffolding, paneling, structural reinforcers, even bridges.  The fibers can be mixed with epoxy resin to produce incredibly strong, yet lightweight, building materials.

-Bamboo is used in our everyday lives.  If you want to increase your use of bamboo in an effort to support budding communities that rely on bamboo as a source of income, or if you simply want to help the environment, there are a few ways in which you can start.  Try to choose bamboo over plastic and wood products whenever possible.  Think about your clothing hangers.  Try bamboo  clothes hangers.  Bamboo is strong enough to hang heavy items, but more lightweight than traditional wooden hangers.  Stock your kitchen with bamboo products.  Opt for bamboo flooring over hardwood or laminate.

It is getting easier and easier to incorporate bamboo into our everyday lives.  Make an effort and you can help to save our planet.

  4. QUESTION:
    How many bamboo diapers will i need?
    I was wondering how many bamboo diapers will i need once my baby arrives?
    Are the bamboo diapers better then clothe ones?
    do you know cheap ones in waterloo ontario area?
    any advise is welcome

    • ANSWER:
      bamboo diapesr ARE cloth diapers honey. Are you buying bamboo all in ones, fitteds or prefolds?

      Newborn babies will go thru 10 diapers daily….so you need to account for how many times a week you will want to launder….most mamas launder their diapers every 2-3 days.

      Fitteds and prefolds will require a cover……..you’ll need about 5-8 covers either in PUL or wool.

      You most likely will not be able to find modern quality cloth diapers in any brick and mortar store, you need to shop around online. If you want bamboo, then just do a search engine for bamboo cloth diapers.

      Don’t forget to look at the different types, covers, wipes, wetbags, and other accessories that will make your diapering super easy.

      Bamboo by the way, is usually not the cheapest route to go on cloth diapers though, nor is bamboo a sustainable fabric. Bamboo is rayon or viscose, which means it’s been rendered synthetic…..but it still makes for a silky and VERY absorbent material.

      You have lots to learn mama! Have fun bopping around the internet looking at your options and learning all the ins and outs of cloth diapers.:)

  5. QUESTION:
    may i know where to find staff that is conventient n safe to hang our clothing out to dry,other than bamboo?
    staff which is suitable for people in wheelchair or elderly to hang their cloths themselves out to dry in the hot sun

    • ANSWER:
      There might be such a rack in the local department store- at least, that’s where they are where I live.

      Another thing you could consider doing is getting instructions, buying lumber and dowels, and building a rack.

      Good luck!
