WHY EARTHLY PASSION LOVES BAMBOO
You probably wondering why there is so much talk about Bamboo. Up to now, cotton has been one of the most popular fibres for clothing and bedding, but there has been a change away from this natural fibre. So, I thought I better explain why we love bamboo.
Do you realise how many chemicals are used in the growing process of cotton? And that some of the most harmful pesticides used on cotton are either suspected or confirmed carcinogens (cancer causing). Not only that, but cotton requires huge amounts of water to grow. There has been many cotton producers who have tried to produce a more eco-friendly product, but the cotton requires unsustainable amounts of water. It takes 1500 litres (400 gallons) to grow enough cotton to make one t-shirt!
