We like sloths. They are much more interesting animals than most people realise. If you ever need a lesson on being mindful and chilling out, just watch a sloth for a while. Sloths are arboreal animals, which means they spend the vast majority of their lives in trees. In the case of sloths, typically only one. Well, trees are big aren't they? Who needs to go to all the bother of finding another one.
Just to make sure that the tree stays healthy and fecund, the sloth helps it along by pooping and peeing about once a week in the same spot every time right at the bottom of the tree. It digs a little hole does its business, covers it up a bit and climbs back up the tree. It is at that time that the moths that live in the sloth's fur jump onto the poop to lay their eggs. The larvae help break down the fertilizer to make it easier for the tree to get nutrients. When the larvae pupate and hatch, they jump onto the sloth on the next visit.
You are of course not buying a sloth. You are on this page to see the bamboo composite mug with a cute picture of Just Hanging Around Sloth. I could go on about all the wonderful benefits of buying bamboo, but you probably know all that already.
