One of the newest types of memory foam pillows is the bamboo pillow. Although bamboo is more of a tropical grass than a monofilament fiber, it does have the advantage of being softer than other kinds of memory foam. And because it is a natural product, bamboo pillows are much better for your health and less harmful to the environment than are other types of foam. Of course, it is entirely up to you what kind of pillow you want: bamboo, duck, or cotton? However, if you are not sure which kind would be best for you, then you should read this article.
First of all, let us look at the advantages of a bamboo cushion over a foam one. The first advantage is the fact that bamboo is a completely natural product. Bamboo can grow unhindered in most climates; unlike, for example, cotton which needs to be grown under controlled conditions in a laboratory. This means that you do not have to worry about pesticides and insecticides. If your bamboo cushion happens to be of the organic variety, then you will have ensured that it was produced using non-chemical means and that you are not contributing to the poisoning of the earth’s soil.
Secondly, a bamboo cushion does not need to be machine-washed. You simply need to take it out of the package and allow it to air dry. That’s all there is to it! In addition, bamboo is an eco-friendly fabric which is suitable for those who want to do their part in saving the planet by reducing the consumption of non-green resources such as fossil fuels. So even if you live in a city where pollution is a daily occurrence, you can help prevent the pollution of the air and water by opting for a bamboo cushion.
Thirdly, a bamboo pillow made of organic cotton will be softer than fabric made from other natural materials. Cotton is an example of a natural material that is extremely comfortable, yet very breathable. It allows air to flow through it therefore keeping you cool all day. If you feel that your neck is hurting, it means that you are taking in more air than you should be. However, a bamboo cushion has none of these properties thus the discomfort is one of an aesthetic nature.
Also, bamboo pillows and mattresses are extremely lightweight. They are the perfect alternative to the likes of memory foam or latex mattresses. Since they are lighter, they are more easily moved around. This is a great advantage over the other two types of foam mattresses. Memory foam tends to stay put unless you really want it, whereas bamboo pillows are extremely easy to move around.
Last but not least, you should take care of your bamboo pillows. The best way to keep them in good condition is to make sure that you soak them only in water that is lukewarm. I personally prefer spring water. This makes sure that the fibers get saturated with water but isn’t too hot. On a related note, you shouldn’t ever immerse them in water that is extremely hot. This will cause them to expand and then cause the memory foam to break down.
I think it is safe to say that if you are looking for a bamboo pillow made of natural, sustainable fabric, you will want to make the purchase of a bamboo fabric mattress. They are much more comfortable and offer many more benefits than any other fabric. This is especially true when you consider that they can help prevent allergies.
So, there you have it. Now you can make the decision of whether to purchase a bamboo pillow made of natural, sustainable material, or a memory foam or latex mattress. Both will give you the support that you need to enjoy the great outdoors in all types of weather, not just the best type of summer weather. After you have made the choice to buy one, you will be ready to enjoy the rest of your life!
