Grand Trunk Launches Organic Bamboo Blend Travel Accessories at Outdoor Retailer Trade Show

Grand Trunk today announced the company is adding a premium line of certified organic viscose from bamboo travel accessories to its product portfolio. The new products include sleep sacks, travel towels, pillow cases and bed sheets made from high-quality viscose from bamboo, and will be on display at the Outdoor Retailer Trade Show (Booth 38185) from August 3-6.

“Grand Trunk has a rich history of finding the most innovative materials in the world to make high-quality outdoor accessories for travelers,” said Jon Neff, vice president of sales, Grand Trunk. “With the addition of our environmentally conscious bamboo product line, we are expanding our company mission to help preserve the outdoors in which our customers enjoy so much through our goods.”

Grand Trunk is looking to bamboo as a promising alternative resource for providing outdoor retailers and travelers with luxurious feeling goods that are wholly organic and sustainable. By using Oeko-Text 100 certified factory made viscose from bamboo, the new products will be able to endure repeated use without wearing down.

Today, Grand Trunk products have grown to include a complete line of hammock, tents and outdoor/travel accessories that follow the company's adventurous spirit, its humble beginnings and the exciting road that lies ahead. All new viscose from bamboo products will be available February 2011.
