We put the "oo" in Bamboo!
Tomorrow (September 18th) is “World Bamboo Day” and it aims to increase the global awareness of bamboo’s benefits, which we love and support.
"The World Bamboo Organization aims to bring the potential of bamboo to a more elevated exposure – to protect natural resources and the environment, to ensure sustainable utilization, to promote new cultivation of bamboo for new industries in regions around the world, as well as promote traditional uses locally for community economic development."

As a nod to the purity of nature, much of MORI's collection is made from ultra-soft bamboo fiber, which not only feels super soft against baby's skin but is also a fast-growing sustainable crop, using much less water to produce than cotton farming. Take a look at our collection here.
The story of the bamboo tree
"The same is true for our children" says Tina Nocera, Founder of Parental Wisdom.
Parents, who patiently work in teaching their children values and build strong character while overcoming adversity and challenge, grow a strong internal foundation. Had the Chinese bamboo farmer dug up his little seed every year to see if it was growing, he would have stunted the tree’s growth. We ask our little children to sit still and have patience. Much better lesson if we’re demonstrating that behavior.
