Bamboo Shower Curtain
These curtains come in a variety of forms.
You can get shower curtains that are made from actual bamboo.
You can also choose plain plastic curtains that have bamboo printed onto them.
Whichever way you go, both will bring in a new life to your shower in a way that a more traditional shower curtain could not. Bamboo plants have a way of opening a room up and bringing in a kind of life that other plants cannot even dream of imitating.
So let’s talk about the natural curtains first. Bamboo is a great material to make things out of. It turns into a sturdy cloth that has organic antibiotics in the fibers. This means that your curtains will not get too smelly too fast.
They are also fully decomposable, whenever it comes time to switch shower curtains again, you will not be putting something in a land fill that will be there forever. This just furthers the many different ways that the bamboo plant is eco-friendly.
A bamboo shower curtain that is made from bamboo is your best bet on staying green.
But a word of caution, bamboo fibers are very absorbent, so you will want to put a plastic curtain in between the shower and your curtains.
That’s pretty common though, so don’t be put off by the idea of using two curtains.
Most decorative curtains are made of absorbent materials and the use of a second, more water resistant barrier is not unusual.
As for the second option, getting a plain plastic curtain that has pictures of bamboo on it is another great choice.
You will be missing out on the eco-friendly aspect of the bamboo plant, but you will still be getting the elegance and beauty that the bamboo plant has to offer.
To me the minimalism is very important for shower curtains. You do not want a huge, bright piece of plastic flapping around whenever you have someone over. A nice plain shower curtain with a few bamboo plants printed on it is a tasteful way to show you appreciation for the earth.
The option is also not eco-friendly because most plastics are not biodegradable. There are not too many environmentally friendly ways to make plastic, but if you choose the natural choice, you will be supporting sustainable farming methods and you will be taking a stand against deforestation.
Your options on prints will also be available when you buy a natural bamboo shower curtain. These will come with different designs and colors, just like the plastic alternative. Going green does not mean that you are going to be without choices.
Either way you choose, you will be taking a step into the tastefully eclectic world of bamboo home accessories.
