Their team offers practical solutions to live a healthier life by incorporating natural, green, organic and simple changes to improve your health.
The Healthy Home Makeover
By Ron and Lisa
When you consider eliminating chemicals from your home and replacing toxic products with healthier alternatives, the word natural usually comes to mind; pre-industrial solutions like the white distilled vinegar that Grandma used. You should be seeking products that take the least toll on the environment, heal our bodies and cause no harm.
When it comes to fabrics, most of us think of cotton, which is of course natural. However, many people don’t realize that cotton is the most heavily sprayed crop in the world. In fact, 25 percent of the world’s insecticides are sprayed on cotton! So, unless you purchase organic cotton, you aren’t choosing a natural fabric for bedding, bath or even clothing. Plus, cotton isn’t a renewable resource; it requires about 800,000 gallons of water to grow an acre of cotton.
If you’re seeking a fabric that is ultra-soft, cool, natural, clean and green…meet bamboo. Bamboo is a renewable resource that regenerates itself at a rapid rate. What’s more is this plant, when made into viscose, is incredibly soft to the touch making it ideal for bedding, bath, and clothing.
Cariloha Bamboo fabrics are made of viscose derived from bamboo. By turning self-replenishing bamboo fields into crazy-soft bamboo fabrics, Cariloha offers an exclusive collection of bedding, apparel, activewear, bath goods, and accessories made from soft, cool, clean and green bamboo.
Inspired by the essence and energy of the islands, Cariloha blends style and self-expression into every piece of clothing and bedding it makes. Special care is taken to drape customers in soft, comfortable, naturally breathable bamboo fabrics that leave them experiencing tranquil days in paradise time and time again.
Thanks to an ever-growing, rich supply of bamboo, Cariloha has over 65+ retail showroom locations in 16 countries, offering its proprietary bamboo apparel, bedding and bath goods that offer the quality, soft touch, and green ‘footprint’ of this renewable resource.
Why Choose Bamboo?
Bamboo saves more trees, regenerates naturally, grows pesticide-free and is one of the eco-friendliest resources on the planet! Bamboo keeps our soil stronger, our air cleaner and our environment healthier than anything else, making it the “loving stalk” of the world. Some species of bamboo, at maturity, will grow up to 4 ft. every day!
Did You Know? Bamboo naturally repels odors and allergens. Cariloha fabrics, made of viscose from bamboo, don’t use harsh chemicals or pesticides and can help prevent skin irritations that can flare up with other chemically treated fabrics.
Recycle, renew, reuse, and replenish – bamboo is something we should all live with. Everyone who wears and uses bamboo goods is inherently giving back in some small way to a more earth-friendly world. The people at Cariloha aren’t saying that you or us can save the world by ourselves or be the greenest person on the block, rather one small green act is one step in the right direction toward an eco-friendlier you and world we all live in.
The Cariloha Bamboo Product Line
Cariloha offers dozens of clothing styles, bed and bath sets, fitness wear, and more all made of Cariloha’s proprietary bamboo blends. Cariloha’s bamboo fabrics are made from bamboo viscose, rayon from bamboo, polyester from bamboo or bamboo charcoal.
