Bamboo sheets have become more and more popular in recent years — and for good reason. Sheets made of bamboo are eco-friendly, soft and last. That is, if they’re made the right way.
Bamboo is such a sought-after material in sustainability spaces because it’s basically a super plant. Bamboo grows incredibly fast, and doesn’t need much water or resources to flourish. And pesticides are rarely used on the abundant plant, making it good for the soil and atmosphere.
Bamboo sheets are particularly popular because they have similar properties to silk, making the material great for those with sensitive skin or for those with frizzy hair. Sheets made of the material are also completely biodegradable, cutting down on the environmental impact of the fabric once your sheets have passed their prime.
Finding a good pair of bamboo sheets means finding a company that is prioritizing sustainability, responsible sourcing and quality production. With the increased popularity of bamboo bed linen, some brands are taking shortcuts to pump out bamboo-branded sheets. Many of these “shortcut” products aren’t fully sustainable, are either processed with toxic chemicals, are manufactured unethically or not made of 100 percent bamboo. Instead, these so-called “ethical linens” are simply a product of greenwashing.
Just because a product is made with a material that has the possibility of being sustainable doesn’t mean the end product is sustainable itself.
It’s necessary to look for companies that harvest bamboo in an eco-friendly way — and pay their farmers and producers fair wages. It’s important to take a holistic view of low impact when going for a sustainable sheet set by looking at a company’s values and production and not just their material and marketing.
