As society becomes more focused on being kind to the environment, bamboo products are rising in popularity exponentially. This wonderful wood grows quickly, is as strong as they come and doesn’t encounter many of the issues that other types of wood do, making it the perfect sustainable addition to your home. That’s why today we’re looking at seven essential bamboo products you simply must have:
Decking is the first of our essential bamboo products as, since we’re heading into summer, many people will be creating or renovating their decks. Like most bamboo products, decking can deal with moisture far better than any other wood, making it the perfect option for those who care about the planet, but also the longevity of their latest outdoor addition. With different stains available and a lower price point than many other premium building materials, this decking option ticks all of the boxes and should definitely be considered when designing your outdoor space.
Next on our list is sheets. Your bed sheets can be made of nearly any material these days and they’re the latest option to join the collection of luxury bamboo products available for homes. Providing a super soft finish, breathable composition and moisture wicking qualities, these sheets can hold their own against even the finest Egyptian cotton. Some studies have even shown that they may be more allergy friendly than other options available on the market so if you suffer from hayfever, asthma or similar, they’re an even better investment.
If you’re looking for some eco-friendly bamboo products that you can carry around with you, look no further than this option and the next on our list. Reducing the amount of plastic that we use in our day to day lives can have great benefits for the environment and new materials are always being experimented with for drink bottles. With the invention of these stylish wooden options, we’re pretty sure perfection has been achieved.
By the same token, plastic drinking straws are out and sustainable wooden ones are in. As one of the longer standing bamboo products on the market, straws have already found their way into handbags, glove boxes and picnic baskets around the world, and people are loving them, so if you haven’t got a set, it’s time to go shopping. Just remember that wooden straws aren’t compatible with all
Shower / Bath Caddies
For those looking to add a luxurious, yet natural touch to their bathroom, you really can’t go past our next favourite bamboo products, shower and bath caddies. As one of the only woods that are accepting of wet environments without too much treatment, these caddies can provide a touch of class without looking overdone and they’re the ideal place to store your shampoo and conditioner (or a cheeky glass of wine).
We round out our list of essential bamboo products with toothbrushes. Keeping our teeth in top shape is vital for our health, but plastic toothbrushes are terrible for the environment. Obviously ceasing to use toothbrushes isn’t a viable way to reduce our plastic waste on this front, but switching to a wooden option is a great eco-friendly move. This is also a wonderful way to teach children about how making small changes can have a big impact and set them up for a more environmentally conscious future.
Moving forward we all have a responsibility to do more to protect our planet and switching to sustainable materials is one of the easiest things we can do to be more eco-conscious. Figure out which of these bamboo products fit with your lifestyle and incorporate them today to help make a brighter future tomorrow.
