Bamboo In Your Duvet

Bamboo Duvet Set Bedding Set by Kassatex

Once in a while, I will see a bedding set that inspires me to change up my entire bedroom.  I'm a colour lover, but when it comes to the bedroom, I do love the simplicity and effortlessness of neutrals.  Aside from the beauty of its design, what really caught my attention was the bamboo textile.  Bamboo is a grass and has been measured growing as fast as one metre in one day!  For the last few years it has been touted as the best eco friendly material to date.  Bamboo reaches maturity in 3-5 years, producing more oxygen the same square footage than many tree varieties.  Due to the durable nature of bamboo plants, no pesticides or chemicals are needed to encourage the maturation process, and they require much less water than trees.  Bamboo products may decompose into a completely reusable and nutrient-rich composted soil.  

The world may never be perfect, but I still like to try and choose products that will cause the least environmental impact on the earth as possible.  Not everybody may agree, but I do believe that it is possible to combine the elements of beauty and design with sustainability.  What do you think?
