In an ideal world, we’d know where all of the products we use are made, how they’re made, and what impact they have on our environment before we buy them and take them home. But the world is far from ideal, and most of us don’t think about or straight up don’t even care about the environment and what impact our daily decisions have on it.
Let’s take clothes for example – most of us don’t even think twice before buying what we like, and most of the time we own clothes that don’t fit us properly, clothes that exacerbate our skin allergies and make us smell fishy. Many people are not even aware that there are other materials for clothes besides cotton, wool, and synthetic fabrics, which is a shame as there are some other awesome materials as well that are not as expensive and luxurious as some people think. Take bamboo, for instance. Bamboo clothing is one of the most underrated yet one of the best fabrics on the market. It is ideal for allergy sufferers, eco-conscious people and people who value comfort.
The benefits of bamboo clothing can especially be noted in underwear. Both women’s and men’s bamboo underwear outperforms, so to say, every other type of fabric in almost all aspects. For starters, with women’s and men’s bamboo underwear, you don’t have to worry about sweat and odors in your nether region. Plus, bamboo has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that are retained even after repetitive washing, which is not the case with other types of fabrics.
People who suffer from eczema and psoriasis and as well as people with sensitive skin need to wear clothing that has hypo-allergenic properties so that it doesn’t worsen their conditions and they feel better in their skin. The itching and irritation can be extremely uncomfortable and can get in the way of everyday life. Bamboo underwear, and clothing, in general, is highly breathable and gentle on the skin. It helps keep your skin cool in summer and warm in winter. Furthermore, it will wick excess moisture away, and we all know that moisture is the number one enemy of people with eczema.
Now that I’ve highlighted the benefits bamboo clothing has for your body, let’s get into how it benefits the environment. First and foremost, bamboo has a very fast growing cycle, and it’s organically grown in controlled environments, where there’s no application of fertilizers, pesticides or insecticides. All of the water used to grow bamboo is recycled and reused. Moreover, bamboo requires small amounts of water to thrive, making it one of the most sustainable sources for producing fabric. It can be grown and harvested over and over without any harm to the environment.
