bamboo are generally more environmentally friendly and durable than synthetic fibers. These natural
fibers are made using materials that come from plants, animals, or minerals. There are two
categories of natural fibers: animal-based or plant-based. Animal-based fibers include silk and wool.
Plant-based natural fibers include cotton, jute, and linen. Recycled cotton is one of the most
sustainable options compared to conventional or organic cotton. It has the potential to help reduce
water and energy consumption in addition to pesticide use.
