Today on Earth Day, we are reminded of our need to take care of the planet we all call home.  From business to individual choices, we all have an obligation to make more sustainable choices.  Consumers have become increasingly aware of the environmental impact of the fashion industry. With concerns over water usage, carbon emissions, and the accumulation of textile waste, many are searching for eco-friendly alternatives.  At Belan.J we have woven sustainability into who we are.

Our Manufacturing Practices:

We’ve partnered with a small, family-owned manufacturer in China. They have a focus on quality control and detailed attentions to materials, with a fair treatment of employees, safe and healthy working conditions, and environmentally sustainable production process. It has built a positive impact in their local community and baby clothing manufacturing industry.


Our Fabric:

We used a blend of 95% Bamboo Rayon with 5% Spandex in our clothing. With 250 GSM (Gram per Square Metre) our clothing offers better durability and holds up over multiple washes, which extends the life of our clothing. Our fibre meets the human-ecological requirements of the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX


What Makes Bamboo Clothing Sustainable?

  1. Rapid Growth: Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world. Some species can grow up to 35 inches in a single day! This rapid growth rate allows for quick and efficient replenishment of bamboo resources.
  2. Low Resource Consumption: Bamboo requires very little water and no pesticides or fertilizers to grow. This is in stark contrast to traditional crops like cotton, which can be resource-intensive and heavily reliant on chemical treatments.
  3. Carbon Sequestration: Bamboo is a highly efficient carbon sink, absorbing large amounts of carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. This contributes positively to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
  4. Minimal Soil Impact: The extensive root system of bamboo helps prevent soil erosion and promotes soil health. Additionally, bamboo can grow in a variety of climates and soil types, making it a versatile and resilient crop.
  5. Biodegradability: Bamboo fabric is biodegradable, meaning it will break down naturally at the end of its life cycle without leaving behind harmful microplastics or pollutants.
  6. Energy-Efficient Processing: While some methods of turning bamboo into fabric can be intensive, there are sustainable alternatives like closed-loop processing that minimize waste and energy usage.
