Bamboo fibre is one of the most eco-friendly materials available, one of the key reasons being that it is a naturally renewable resource. It is also the world’s fastest growing plant, which have been found to grow at up to 91 cm (35 in) per day or at a rate of 0.00003 km/h (0.00002 mph) which is 3 feet per day! There is also no need to use any fertilisers, pesticides, or herbicides to help the plant thrive.
Unlike hardwood trees, bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and releases an astonishing 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere.
In the correct conditions, bamboo is capable of growing up to 4 feet in 24 hours. As the plant grows very quickly, we are able to manufacture our products without disturbing the wild panda’s diet, as 99% of it is bamboo. Bamboo is also extremely easy to maintain, as it does not require any pesticides or fertilizers to grow and it absorbs a very small amount of water compared to other plants for textiles such as cotton.
Let’s do a quick test. Take your pillow, remove the pillowcase and examine it. Is the shape what it used to be? How does it smell? Are there stains on it? Pillows collect dead skin cells and sweat, which invites other guests like dust mites, fungus and mould. Therefore if your pillow is suffering from this, it might be time to replace it.
Tend to wake up with a sore neck? You’re definitely not alone. An increasing number of people complain that their sleep is affecting the way they feel during the day. Your sleeping habits and the lack of proper support during the night play a big role in this.
If your days are consistently ruined by nagging pain, a very likely cause is the pillow you sleep on. Many of us consider pillows to be a purchase you don’t put much thought in. However, depending on your sleeping position, your pillow can have a huge impact on quality of sleep. Choosing the right pillow to support your neck and shoulders can help you wake up ready to take on the day’s challenges.
