Sleep easy with the REST Viscose from Bamboo full body pillow. It’s been scientifically engineered and designed to make you more comfortable and sleep better. The pillows outer fabric has three layers woven together to create a breathable, comfortable surface. The interior of the pillow is made from blended Memory-Foam. When compared to cotton and polyester, viscose from bamboo is found to have a high breaking tenacity, better moisture wicking properties, and better moisture absorption. In addition to the sustainability and natural benefits as a textile, bamboo harvesting helps support impoverished regions of the world because it can be cultivated quickly and is a natural cash crop. Bamboo is the fastest-growing and most sustainable plant source available. Bamboo doesn’t need any pesticides or chemicals to grow, so this product is free of any substances that could be harmful or irritate your skin. Reach a better sleep with a more natural pillow.
The main problem we have found from consumer reviews are that this pillow is heavy. Because it is a full body pillow made from memory foam, it can be denser than other pillows. There are also complaints of a chemical smell when it is taken out of the packaging. This is from the new foam and once properly aired out the smell will vanish. More reviews and pricing available now on Amazon.com.

About the Author: Natalie Wilson
When I’m not studying up on the latest eco-friendly ways to produce everyday items (particularly using bamboo), you can find me playing trivia at a local bar, or hanging out at the beach.
I love the idea of using an abundant resource like bamboo to make a huge varieties of items we use everyday. Particularly when those are currently being made with plastic, or plants that require pesticides and a huge amount of water to grow.
Hopefully this site will inspire people to think about ways they can improve their sleep, decrease the strain they put on the environment, and generally get better, long-lasting products that are also sustainable and of higher quality than the products they are used to.
