Why Do We Use Bamboo

Little Toes is among the few natural diaper companies that use 100% natural bamboo fibers for both the diapers and baby wipes.

Competitors such as Honest, 7th Generation and more recently Pampers natural diaper line Pure, use corn, cotton, sugar cane and other plant-based materials, for their natural eco-friendly diapers and wipes.

Although these are all safe and eco-friendly materials, Little Toes diapers use bamboo fibers, due to the many health, safety, and environmental benefits, attributed to this material.

In a nutshell

Bamboo fibers are super soft. They are organically smooth and round without chemical treatment, meaning no sharp spurs or harsh chemicals that may irritate the baby’s skin.

Bamboo is 70% more absorbent then cotton.
Bamboo wicks moisture away from the body and keeps babies 100% drier than cotton.

Bamboo permits fresh air to circulate which allows the baby’s skin to remain dry and comfortable in any temperature. It is more breathable than cotton.

Bamboo also has excellent natural antibacterial and deodorizing properties. Cotton does not.

Bamboo reduces or eliminates odor-causing bacteria.

Bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic, making it perfect for babies with sensitive skin.

 Bamboo is a naturally organic fiber and 100% biodegradable. It is also considered an eco-friendlier material than cotton, corn and other plant-based materials. The bamboo crop which is the fastest growing plant in the world, is highly beneficial to the environment and its use is safe for the planet. Some of the environmental benefits are the following.

For the Environment

 Bamboo is a naturally organic fiber and 100% biodegradable. It is also considered an eco-friendlier material than cotton, corn and other
plant-based materials.

The bamboo crop which is the fastest growing plant in the world, is highly beneficial to the environment and its use is safe for the planet.

Some of the environmental benefits are the following:

- Generates up to 30% more oxygen than other plants and trees
- Helps to reduce carbon dioxide in the environment
- Contribute to enriching the soil, while cotton crops drain and deplete it.
- Grows without the need for irrigation, pesticides, or fertilizers
- As a member of the grass family, it quickly replenishes itself after harvest.
- When bamboo is used in disposable diapers it reduces the time it takes to decompose from 500 years for conventional diapers to 180 days!
