Many of us are looking for more ways to “go green”. One way to live a more eco-conscious life is by looking in our closets and realizing that our fashions are having a huge negative impact on our planet. But is there clothing out there that is eco-friendly, comfortable and stylish at the same time? Let’s have a look at the benefits of bamboo clothing and why it is quickly gaining popularity in closets around the world.
Bamboo has hollow fibers that allow the fabric to breathe. Bamboo offers excellent ventilation as air can circulate through to keep you cool.
Bamboo fabric wicks moisture out and away from the body. It has superior sweat absorption making it perfect for athletic wear. Because of the hollow fibers, bamboo clothing is quick to dry.
Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It resists the growth of bacteria keeping clothes odor-free and you smelling and feeling fresh. Because of this, you don’t need to launder clothing as often helping you reduce your carbon footprint.
Bamboo clothing has the unique ability to keep you cool in the summer but also keep the heat in, in the winter.
- Luxuriously Soft
You will absolutely love the way bamboo fabric feels on your skin. Long, smooth fibers are woven to make a soft, silk-like fabric that is incredibly comfortable.
Bamboo clothing is wonderful for everyone but especially great for those with sensitive skin and allergies. The smooth fabric does not have rough or sharp fibers such as wool or acrylic that can irritate the skin.
- Eco-Friendly to Grow
Bamboo is a fast-growing plant that flourishes without the use of pesticides or chemicals. It absorbs C02 making the air we breathe cleaner and releases more oxygen than trees do! It can grow in almost any soil condition and requires only rainwater. A huge plus to our planet!
As you can see, bamboo has many beneficial attributes making it good for clothing. Isn’t it time you added this sustainable, wonderfully soft clothing to your wardrobe?
