Cariloha this week was recognized by Utah Business Magazine with the Green Business Award for Innovation in our developing and providing customers with comfortable, sustainable bedding, clothing and bath goods made from sustainable, rain-fed bamboo.
Every year, Utah Business awards those businesses who have worked to improve the state of Utah’s environment. The Utah Business Green Business Awards are for companies who are leading the way toward a better, brighter, more sustainable future.
“We’re very proud of our efforts to create and offer Soft, Cool, Clean and Green products to the Bamboo Nation,” said Scott Brady, Cariloha VP of Communications. “It’s a journey. A process. You aren’t suddenly green. Or, your products aren’t suddenly perfectly green and good for the planet. It takes consistent effort over time. You don’t necessarily arrive at a point where you can say that you’re 100 percent green and nothing more needs to be done. There’s always room for improvement. Every step forward, however, is a step in the right direction. And one step forward is better than no steps at all.”
Cariloha created a new sustainable category within the home and bedding industry to address a need in the market. With sustainability, comfort and natural luxury features in mind, Cariloha designed an innovative alternative to traditional home goods.
Cariloha bamboo bedding is on the forefront of fabric and textile technologies offering a more sustainable and environmentally conscious bedding alternative derived from sustainable bamboo that synergistically gives back to the planet.
“Cariloha looks at bamboo as something we can all live with,” said Brady. “Each time we shift from non-sustainable fabrics to sustainable bamboo fabrics we help save our world. Sustainable bamboo products not only provide luxury comfort for consumers, but they also help save the environment. It’s a comfy way to save the world.”
From Cariloha’s first product iterations, the company has continued to build an exceptional bedding line highlighting the luxurious softness of bamboo-rich fabrics. With a finger on the pulse of growing environmental preservation needs, Cariloha created sustainable bamboo-viscose sheets that inherently help preserve the soils, oceans and atmosphere.
Bamboo is 100 percent biodegradable. It keeps the world’s landfills and forests cleaner and healthier. Bamboo fabrics naturally dissolve right back into the earth, making for cleaner, safer soils. It’s easier on our landfills, better for dirt quality, and doesn’t leave as many leftover, unusable byproducts.
Cariloha bamboo bedding is certifiably clean and green with recognized safety and sustainability standards including Organic Content Standard, Global Organic Textile Standard, CertiPur-US, Fair Trade and OEKO-TEX Standard 100.
