Bamboo Fiber Sheets

Another good alternative to cotton and it doesn't require pesticides.
Bamboo fiber has officially entered the mainstream. Bed, Bath and Beyond now offers these sheets made of 100% bamboo fiber with a thread count of 230. Bamboo is one of the softest fabrics in the world — softer than cotton but with a drape like silk. It comes from a rapidly renewable resource that doesn't require pesticides to grow.

Since you are a fan of's, I hope you will want to check out the wonderful AUDIO INTERVIEW with Treehugger's Simran Sethi, which can be found on The Keeper, Inc.'s website at

Simran Sethi, who is fast becoming a shining “eco-star” (she has appeared on the Martha Stewart Show and the Oprah Show!), gave a really informative and lively 25-minute audio interview, in which she tells all about TREEHUGGER.COM: its history, its goals, and its plans for the future. She also tells about some of her environmental "heroes" in this lively, compelling, interview.

It's a "must-hear"!

The Keeper, Inc., by the way, is the manufacturer of the environment-friendly Keeper and Moon Cup reusable menstrual cups.

Hope you enjoy the interview -- Simran is really excellent.
