It’s not difficult to want to snuggle with a newborn – their smooth, soft skin with warmth directed towards you as they get cozy in your arms – isn’t too difficult to gravitate towards.
But we soon learned that snuggling with baby in a Bamboosa makes the experience that much better.
As their name indicates, Bamboosa is a bamboo-driven eco-friendly clothing company, making options for men, women and babies. We’ve had the opportunity to review their baby hooded towels, the perfect snuggler for post-bath cuddles.Each hooded towel is made from 80% viscose from organic bamboo with 20% recycled soda bottles made into polyester (rPET). This recycled material is one we don’t see too often with bamboo clothing (most often it’s organic cotton instead) – and perhaps the secret addition that gives it an undeniably extravagant softness.
Surrounding your baby in a Bamboosa towel ensures that they aren’t enveloped in chemicals. Their fabric is free of chlorine and formaldehyde, and the EPA and FDA have ensured that PET bottle material has nary a harmful effect. All dyes used are eco-friendly, too; their whole line is completely natural and chemical-free.
Each towel is double layered, upping the maximum absorbency that bamboo fabric already has. They measure 30 x 30 inches, so it will definitely last your little one past their first year. Gift sets, too, make the perfect package for new parents.
If baby is getting fussy and the job needs to be done quick, bamboo towels absorb for times better than cotton does, and they are fast drying, getting you through the process in a breeze. And if baby screams for your attention, tossing the towel to the floor and forgetting about it for awhile is no problem – the material is anti-fungal ensuring it bacteria-free for the next use.
Bamboosa has harnessed this remarkable fabric not just because of its small eco-impact; bamboo is comfortable, soft, hypoallergenic, anti-microbial, and even provides a natural UV protection.
We love when companies take it an extra step forward, and we always note it in our reviews. Bamboo is no exception. As a sweatshop-free company, its clothing is produced in a factory in Andrews, South Carolina. The bamboo they use is planted and grown on family-owned farms China, and they ensure its done sustainably. Read more about it here.
It doesn’t end there. They’re also a sustainable company in other ways, actively working alongside Change Round-Up, an organization that uses the concept of a spare change donation jar in the e-commerce market. Bamboosa uses their donations from this project to assist with the following organizations:
- Healthy Child Healthy World helps educate others with combating health and developmental issues in children caused by toxins in homes, schools, and communities.
- Diligent Hands…Gracious Hearts is dedicated towards providing the elderly and sick with free home and lawn care.
- OCEANA‘s mission to to provide ocean protection by reducing pollution and preventing harm to sea life.
They also ship their packages in 100% recycled paper, another planet-friendly plus.
We’re just left wondering when they’re going to come out with an adult-sized.
