Do you bamboo? We do!
In a world surrounded by plastics and synthetic materials we don't have to look far to find an alternative Mother Nature has gifted us. Bamboo.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, can grow in almost any condition with minimal water and produces more oxygen per square metre than most tree species. If bamboo was a superhero it would beat Superman AND Batman in a fight!
Bamboo is also a sustainable alternative to cotton, which is an energy and water hungry material. It is ohh so soft and breathable which makes it perfect for your activewear (take note hot yogis). More and more clothing designers are making the switch so look out on your next shopping adventure. In fact bamboo is popping up in more and more household items too, from floorboards to toothbrushes! Once bamboo products reach the end of their lifespan they can easily be composted rather then sent to landfill for several hundred years. Amazing!
Bamboo can look great in the garden too however you need to make sure you get the non-evasive variety unless you plan on supporting your very own colony of Giant Pandas in your backyard. It's important to protect our native environment from introduced species too.
When we were looking for some stylish fashion accesories to add to our store we came across our amazing One Happy Leaf range. Beautifully handmade in Australia using sustainable sourced bamboo they are inspired by contemporary Scandinavian design and nature. The use of natural materials mean that no one piece is the same adding a bit of flair and individuality to your look and nothing beats the feeling and warmth of wearing natural materials.
So ask yourself...Do you bamboo?
