Bamboo Spun with Harsh Chemicals to Make Textiles
May 4, 2011

Bamboo isn't the perfect green product most consumers think it is.

The stalks and leaves are green, and some of the claims made by retailers are true: Bamboo grows like gangbusters without fertilizer or pesticides, it shoots up again after being cut and it's incredibly hardy.

So hardy, in fact, that it must be spun with harsh chemicals before it can be used to make textiles, including towels, clothes and baby diapers.

The resulting cloth is not natural bamboo fibre. It's man-made rayon or viscose fibre, made from bamboo pulp.
