Not only are eco friendly clothing/underwear products good for the environment, coming from materials that are sustainable and plant based, but it's also nicer on your skin to wear natural fibres. Even better that they are organic, so have not be treated with any pesticides.
Bamboo is becoming more popular in clothing and bedding and this one of the reasons we love bamboo products so much:
Bamboo has gained popularity as a "green" fibre. Why? Manufacturers point to the fact that bamboo:
- can be cultivated quickly
- can be used as a cash crop to develop impoverished regions of the third world, and
- is a natural fibre (as opposed to popular synthetics like polyester) whose cultivation !results in a decrease in greenhouse gases.
Bamboo is extremely resilient and durable as a fibre. In studies comparing it to cotton and polyester, it is found to have a higher breaking tenacity, better moisture wicking properties and better moisture absorption. It is also far more Eco-friendly than cotton and polyester.
