Ok, so I know I’ve lost my mind now. A good pal of mine was shopping for new bed linens the other day and I have to share this with her and others. Bed, Bath & Beyond is now selling bedding made from Bamboo! So what’s the big deal about bamboo you might ask.
Did you know that bamboo is actually a grass that can grow up to 3 feet a day? It is an extremely rapidly renewable resource; which is why it’s showing up in flooring too. I did a little research and here are some extra reasons to choose bamboo over cotton for your next linen purchase:
- Normally grown pesticide and chemical free; the ultimate organic growing conditions,
- Sheets are all natural,
- Bacteria resistant,
- Softer than cotton; and
- Same drape as silk.
My husband and I have been planning on getting new bed linens soon; especially with the new hole that turned up after the last wash cycle. I know where I’ll be looking first. Let me know if you’ve tried bamboo, I’d love to hear your experience.
