Bamboo & Lending a Hand
I love soft clothing. Above all else, clothing must be soft or I won’t wear it and so I was especially excited when I received a V-neck tshirt and travel skirt from Five Bamboo and discovered they are so soft and so comfy!
The v-neck tshirt is fitted without being skin tight.
Personally, I hate how overly tight tshirts look or feel on my body and this shirt (size large) was neither. Obviously if you prefer a tighter look or fit, size down accordingly. I am also 5’10” and this shirt was a nice length on me, too.
The skirt is so comfy, too.
Five Bamboo doesn’t use pesticides, fertilizers, irrigation, harmful production practices so their garments are 100% sustainable.
Sometimes “eco-friendly” clothing isn’t really that cute but these pieces are super cute and they just hug my skin perfectly and I can see myself getting tons of use out of them.
Because they are soft, comfy (drawstring!), lightweight, wash wonderfully, and fold up into next to nothing for travel.
The nice thing about drawstring pants or fold-over waist pants is that you can go to town on things like Peanut Butter Banana Bread (Vegan, GF, Soy-free) and still fit into your pants!
Or even just eating a normal meal is more comfortable when you don’t have tight jeans around your waist, right?
From my last post, Pay the Paper Price, it seems universal that we all feel ripped off by the high cost of blowing our noses and
wiping our butts wiping up spills.
1. Have you ever tried bamboo clothing? Or bamboo anything?
I have bamboo towels that I use daily. They are really heavy and take forever to dry in the dryer. Which is the opposite of sustainable (running the dryer forever) but I do like them. I got them at Bed Bath & Beyond about 5 years ago and they’ve held up wonderfully.
I had bamboo sheets for a bed size that I no longer own.
I have these Bamboo bowls
I have this bamboo silverware drawer organizer
And I like adding bamboo shoots in a stir fry like this one.
2. Has anyone helped you with something lately or gone over and beyond the call of duty ‘just because’? Or, have you lended a helping hand to anyone lately?
Yesterday Callie from Rawxy was so sweet and was trying to help me troubleshoot a tech glitch I was having. She went way over the call of duty in order to try to help me and it made me feel so special that she would take the time to try to help me like she did. Thank you, Callie! She’s just a great person and she has amazing raw goodies, too. Yum!
Often times we are all so caught up in our own worlds and our own problems, we don’t have time to spend a few extra minutes helping someone else with their problems or doing small things that can really put a smile on someone’s face. So, it’s always awesome when nice things and good deeds happen and I always try my best, too, to help others out. Whether it’s dropping something in the mail for someone, holding a door for them, writing posts that help new or aspiring bloggers learn the ropes, I really try to give to others. Not to sound cheesy, but it really is better to give than to receive. Unless we’re talking bamboo clothing or tech glitch advice. hah!
