The environment certainly does benefit when buying Bamboo Textiles range.
Bamboo is actually a type of grass so it needs no pesticides, no irrigation, no synthetic growing agents – fertilizers. Better still bamboo yields 50 times more fibre per acre than cotton (Durst 2006). Growing cotton crops accounts for 11% of all pesticides and 25% of all insecticides used each year worldwide. (WWF 2005)
A quantitative anti bacterial test has been carried out which shows that harmful bacterial strains such as Staphylococus aureus when subjected to a 24 hour incubation period, the bamboo fabric showed a 99.8% bacterial destroy rate.
Now that is sensational!
