: Bamboo is grown without pesticides and fertilizers.
: Bamboo is arguably the most renewable resource on our planet. It has an extensive rooting system and needs little water, growing 4 to 6 new shoots per year. It is, in fact, considered to be the fastest growing plant in the world.
: Bamboo absorbs nearly 5 times the amount of greenhouse gases and produces 35% more oxygen than the same amount of trees. It is critical in the fight to end global warming. Bamboo is rain-fed only and helps to reduce soil erosion. It is a grass, so it regenerates without the need for replanting.
: Bamboo fiber comes from nature and it returns entirely to nature in the end.
: Bamboo is highly absorbent and wicks water away from the body 3 to 4 times faster than cotton. In warm, humid weather, bamboo clothing helps keep baby drier, cooler, and more comfortable. Another advantage is that bamboo fabric doesn't stick to the skin. Bamboo fiber and fabric require less dye than 100% cotton fabric because bamboo has a better absorbency than conventional cotton.
-Breathable and thermo-regulating.
: Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal presumably because of a bacteriostasis agent unique to bamboo plants called, "bamboo kun," which also helps bamboo resist harboring odors.
: Bamboo fiber does have natural UV protection. According to the Suncare Research Laboratories, the UPF label rate is 15. The 100% bamboo fabric scored 18.3 on the UPF scale with 94.15% UVA block and 93.17% UVB block.
: Bamboo's organic and natural properties make it non-irritating to a baby's sensitive skin.
: It is often compared to silk or cashmere, but easier to clean (washer and dryer safe). The fibers won't peel, making it safer for babies.
