In a blog mini-series for Floresy.online, I have taken a look at bamboo. It’s a popular material that is often viewed as an eco-friendly alternative to wood, in particular, hardwood. But is it really a good alternative? Is it sustainable and what are the costs associated with farming, transporting and working with bamboo? You can read the blog post that looks at bamboo as a wood alternative.
Then, I explored bamboo fabric. This is a particularly soft textile that claims to have anti-bacterial properties. The use of bamboo fabric is increasing in baby products and clothing. However, bamboo fabric has a dark side making it anything but good for the environment. You can read the second post in the series about how bamboo fabric really isn’t eco-friendly.
