8 reasons to bundle up your baby in bamboo

1. Bamboo is thermal-regulating

Bamboo yarn has natural thermo-regulation, ensuring your bub is kept cool in summer and warm in winter. With it’s anti-static build-up, it provides ventilation, moisture absorbency and room to breathe. With a range of soft tones and styles, Boody Baby is the perfect outfit for all year round – not to mention super cute.

2. It has hypo-allergenic and anti-fungal properties

In the infant stages of growth, we want to protect our bubs from as many nasties as possible. Bamboo’s hypoallergenic and anti fungal properties are retained through Boody’s process of fabrication, even after washing many times. Sounds good … and smells good.

3. It is soft and snuggly

Bamboo is superbly soft and a dream to wear on the skin – ensuring your little bundle of joy is content, nurtured and of course snuggle-friendly all day long.

4. Choosing to buy bamboo helps the climate change effort

By making the choice to buy bamboo, you’re contributing to the global climate change effort. Bamboo retains almost all it’s water, sustaining the living eco-system around it. It also absorbs significant amounts of carbon dioxide and produces up to 30% more oxygen than trees.

5. It is eco-friendly

Producing commercial harvests of bamboo requires no artificial irrigation, only rainwater and doesn’t require the use of pesticides, insecticides or fertilizers. Unlike most textiles and materials, the process from plant to product is as eco-friendly as the bamboo itself.

6. Bamboo is community-friendly

You can feel good knowing that your support of bamboo harvest and production is part of a larger humanitarian effort. Bamboo is highly community-friendly and provides much-needed work for many communities in developing countries and many socially driven organisations are now coming to the party.

7. It can be harvested again and again

Bamboo is the fastest-growing woody plant in the world, with some species shooting as much as one metre a day! You can literally watch it grow! Unlike most other textiles which require extensive irrigation, new stems of Bamboo are able to be harvested again and again.

8. Bamboo is biodegradable

Bamboo is eco-friendly and biodegradable. Disposing of bamboo products leaves minimal environmental impact, giving you peace of mind that you’re contributing to a greener future for your children, as your bub grows up and out of their clothing.
