Ep 4: Why You Need to Change Your Undies
Yes, you need to change your undies... but not for the reason you think! This episode of our Nourished Life podcast is all about why we should all change to bamboo underwear and clothing. Find out just what makes this eco-friendly so sustainable (and so comfy too!)
Why should we change our undies? Well, I would hope that you already know the answer to that question... I'm talking about why we should change to bamboo undies, specifically Boody Bamboo Eco Wear. In this next episode of our Nourished Life podcast, I'm talking to Shaun Greenblo, the CEO of Boody, an awesome Aussie range of underwear and clothing basics.
On Episode 4 of Talking Clean with Irene, Shaun talks us through exactly why bamboo is such a sustainable and eco-friendly fabric, dispelling some of the myths surrounding its production. We discuss how bamboo compares to cotton clothing, the benefits of wearing bamboo, why it falls under "slow" rather than "fast" fashion, and even how we might be able to use our old clothing to insulate housing instead of sending it to landfill. And yes, we even talk about how often we should be replacing our underwear with fresh pairs (although, trust me, you'll be wearing your bamboo undies for a loooooong time.)
