Look, I don’t mean to sound like the Grinch, but one thing I really can’t stand about the holidays is how much waste they cause.
I’ve been working as a Sustainable Product Researcher for Sleepbo for nearly a year now. So when my manager asked me to test out some of the season’s most popular gift items, I suggested a few sustainable gifts be added to the list.
So today, I’m going to be reviewing something I keep seeing everywhere in the eco-friendly world: Bamboo bed sheets.
After hours of research, I made the decision to purchase a Bamboo Bed Sheet Set from kuddly for the following reasons.
Bonus: I always like to cover my bases and this company has them covered for me! They have a 30-night guarantee AND free UK delivery. So there’s really no reason not to try them!
Ok, first of all, do the kalmkoala employees work 24/7? Because my package came literally the next day! It was amazing, honestly.
I was expecting quite a bit of packaging, but I was actually pleasantly surprised when I found these sheets came in a reusable drawstring bag! Much of the other packaging was recyclable but I was disappointed by the few plastics that were used. Still, the package did look beautiful and it was far less wasteful than many of the other packages I’ve ordered from supposedly “sustainable” brands.
Once I took the bamboo bed sheets out of the packaging, however, I was really blown away by the quality. They were so soft they felt almost like pure silk. I was amazed!
I put them on my bed and they were the perfect fit. They smelt so fresh and when I laid down to see what it felt like, I really didn’t want to get back up!
The first night with my new sheets, I fell asleep so quickly and deeply that, when I woke up the next morning, I thought it must have been some sort of fluke.
But no! Sure enough, night after night, I’ve gotten wonderfully cosy sleep. It’s hard to remember how I used to sometimes lay awake scratching my irritated skin, or wake up in a puddle of my own sweat. These bamboo bed sheets are super soft on my skin, and they’re so airy and light, I always fall asleep feeling cosy and cool at the same time!
After using these for only a week, I purchased 4 more sets–one for my guest room and three for my family members’ Christmas gifts. I couldn’t help myself, they’re amazing quality for an amazing price!
Here are just a few of the benefits I’ve noticed from using these bamboo bed sheets for almost a month.
It’s honestly impossible for me to think of a reason why you wouldn’t replace your old bed sheets with bamboo. They literally offer something for everyone!
