Bamboo Facts
Bamboo... Naturally...
         Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth;up to as much as 4 feet a day!  It also provides the best canopy for the greening of deforested lands for a couple of reasons.  It lowers light intensity from the sun, protecting against ultraviolet rays,and it releases up to 35% more oxygen than other trees.
         Bamboo harvesting is fully sustainable,requiring no pesticides and very little irrigation,regenerating itself naturally within 50-60 days!  This makes Bamboo naturally "green" and ecologically friendly.            
         Bamboo,one of nature's miracles,has been used in a wide variety of applications, most recently in the world of textiles.  Bamboo fabric, with its' natural wicking properties, is breathable and cool,naturally antibacterial,odor resistant,non-toxic and non-irritating and last but not least, is completely machine wash and dryable!
