Kitchen: 

Kitchen - Bamboo Sheets

Another area in the home in which bamboo can be useful for is the kitchen. Bamboo is great for kitchen substitutes such as cutlery, cooking utensils, chopping and serving boards, serving trays, bowls, plates and even napkins. These products are not only useful in the long run, but also stylish and can be used as decor around the kitchen. For those that use single use plastic items and are looking to use more environmentally friendly products, bamboo is for you. Bamboo products can be bought in bulk and thrown away at ease, having no effect on the environment. Unlike plastic, bamboo is biodegradable and compostable which can help the environment. The kitchen is the perfect area to begin bamboo substitution as it is the heart of the home where the most products are used and often wasted. 

Bathroom and toilet:

Bathroom and Toilet -  Bamboo Sheets

The bathroom and toilet is a place of cleanliness and often shared. Being a shared area, this means towels used to wash your hands are also used by other members in the house. Cotton sheets and towels spread germs and bacteria which are then transferred to all those that use it. However, substituting cotton bath sheets and towels with bamboo will protect your skin from germs and bacteria. How does completing your shower with a nice germ free bamboo towel sound? Drying you off and leaving you clean (and germ free). 

Toothbrushes are used multiple times daily and are extremely important. Dentists recommend changing toothbrushes every three months. Four toothbrushes per person will be thrown out every year and often they are non-biodegradable. Substitute your ordinary toothbrush with a bamboo toothbrush to make a change for the better, with four less items affecting the environment. Other items such as toilet paper, cotton buds and tissues are items used daily worldwide. Bamboo toilet paper and tissue is much softer and stronger than ordinary toilet paper and tissue, which can be harmful to the skin as chemicals are often used for production. 

Furniture: 

Furniture - Bamboo Sheets

Bamboo has been used to create furniture for all areas around the home, including outdoor and indoor. Items to incorporate around the house include rugs, dining settings, sofas, chandeliers and even art pieces. These products are long lasting, easy to look after and can be cleaned easily. These products bring a sense of livelihood and colour in your home. If you like to change around your decor and furniture regularly, you can do so knowing the disposal of your products will not affect the environment. 

Here at Linenly, we provide our customers with high quality bamboo bed sheets for all to benefit. We support the use of bamboo for all areas in your home, to benefit not only our customers, but more importantly the environment.
