Products Made in USA with Bamboo

Bamboo is renowned as a green material used to make a multitude of products. Bamboo can be used to create everything from clothing, housewares, paper and even bio fuels. This wonder plant is as sustainable as it is flexible and can be grown in many climates, included much of the USA. It is an incredibly fast growing crop, requires little water and no pesticides. Additionally, bamboo filters soil and  sequesters more CO2 than trees.

    Thanks for reminding everyone about the wonders of bamboo. I did a review of a bamboo jacket recently and now it’s one of my fave pieces in my wardrobe! I love that it’s sustainable and could lead to less logging :)

    Bamboo is a great and absorbent material that I use to stuff some of my son’s cloth diapers. I love it! It washes up so nice and soft and always smells fresh. I really love the scarves and sunglasses, so cute!
