We bought a new bed for my son the other day. He’s 2 and just out of the blue told his Daddy that he wanted a big bed, not his toddler bed. That bed was a hand-me-down, so no real worry that he only used it a relatively few months. Just have to see who wants it next.
So we bought a bed. Nice one, made of wood, bought at Ikea. Took my husband a solid 4 hours to assemble it, but the bed should last him through high school at the very least. Not at all a bed that will appeal only to a child.
But of course this meant new sheets to. And that got me thinking about bamboo products. Those bamboo sheets feel nice! Made me want to replace the ones on my bed, except they don’t need to be replaced yet.
I really think I’m going to be remembering bamboo whenever I can as an option. I love the look of the bamboo cutting boards. And I know that other kitchen and home items also come in bamboo.
Best part about bamboo is how quickly it grows, unlike wood. Yet it’s durable.
I know there aren’t a lot of things I NEED to buy in bamboo, pretty and useful though it is. But I do like to keep it in mind.

Good points! I LOVE bamboo knitting needles. Almost all of my needles are bamboo. They are just lovely.
