Bamboo – A Greener Solution For Diapers?
If you have kids , you’ll know that diapers pile up and up. When you start throwing them out on a daily basis, you realize just how much waste they create.
Bamboo diapers come from a natural source that is easily wasteful. And they’re 100% bio-degradable too. And they’re actually more absorbent than cotton!
Bamboo is considered to be a “green” crop for several reasons. It absorbs more carbon dioxide than many other trees and plants do. And as bamboo is also from the grass family, it replenishes itself quickly after being harvested.
Not only that, but bamboo grows without the need for irrigation, pesticides, or fertilizers. If you’re trying to raise children and lower your carbon footprint , these are all big pluses.
Pamper Your Baby In “Artificial Silk”
Bamboo is a fast-growing plant in the grass family. When it is processed to be made into fabric, it is then technically called a Rayon fabric. Rayon fabrics can also be made from other materials such as cotton or wood pulp.
Rayon Fabric was originally referred to as “Artificial Silk” and was first patented in 1894. So this fabric is not a new thing. It’s soft, gentle characteristics make it a perfect diaper material.
How is Bamboo Processed into Fabric?
How is bamboo turned into Rayon fabric? A chemical called Sodium Hydroxide, also known as caustic soda, is the key factor at play.
Sodium Hydroxide is a strong chemical, but it poses no health hazards as long as it’s used and disposed of properly.
In fact, Sodium Hydroxide is used to process cotton into fabric, as well. So the process is completely safe.
