We all know we should be environmentally conscious these days. In fact, we should have started sooner. What eco shifts are you already practicing? Is your sleepwear comfy and eco-friendly? Everyone’s raving about bamboo pajamas.

Check out why you should hop aboard the bamboo pajama business train!

Bamboo Pajama Benefits

Before you shun the hype behind this fast-growing product, you must understand first the benefits of the bamboo plant itself.

Bamboo is a quick-growing plant. Therefore, harvesting bamboo doesn’t mean trees are chopped off up to the point of deforestation. It also doesn’t need to be replanted— new bamboo sprouts on their own. Not only that, the plant also doesn’t need to be watered because it only needs rainwater to survive. Bamboo is also free of fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals.

When bamboo is used as the main component in products like bamboo pajamas, you’re doing Mother Earth good— you’re contributing to the ecosystem. You’re not only wearing sleepwear made from a material that requires less water to grow but unlike traditional cotton, you’re also wearing a product of a plant that’s unlikely to be overharvested. Aside from those, you’re very likely to be guaranteed that you’re wearing pesticide-free clothing!

Bamboo pajamas are also breathable and the sleepwear seems to prevent eczema attacks in people. It’s also quick-absorbing so it’s nice to wear on warm days or in humid climates.
