If you needed one more reason to get away from fast fashion and get into slow fashion, I'll go one better and give you five reasons! In this next blog, I'm explaining why you need to get changed into bamboo clothing immediately, if not sooner.
Honestly, there are endless reasons for choosing bamboo clothing... this miracle fibre should be a staple in our wardrobes all year round! Do you own any bamboo clothes? If not, maybe you've heard of its wide range of benefits. I've previously blogged about the benefits of bamboo products like toothbrushes and sheets, but bamboo clothing is truly so special it deserves its own time in the spotlight.
When it comes to finding the best eco-friendly bamboo clothing on the market, look no further than Aussie brand, Boody Bamboo Eco Wear. With their everyday basics for the whole family all thoughtfully crafted from organically-grown bamboo, Boody has all you need to give your wardrobe a complete, eco-friendly overhaul – from underwear to socks, and even activewear too. I have actually been wearing some of my Boody pieces for years and years now, so I can tell you now they really are made to last.
Whether you're looking for comfort or sustainability (or both!), there are so many benefits of wearing Boody bamboo clothing! I could go on forever, but instead here are my top 5 reasons to wear bamboo clothing:
1. It's grown organically
Forget pesticides, insecticides and fertilisers. Boody's bamboo clothing is grown organically and without artificial irrigation – just rainwater. To top it off, all the water and agents used in the production process is then recycled and reused in a closed-loop system.
2. It's hypoallergenic
According to Boody, bamboo clothing actually doesn't cause allergic reactions. This makes it especially suitable for those with extra sensitive skin and with skin conditions such as eczema.
3. It's thermoregulating
Keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer, bamboo clothing has natural thermoregulating properties which make it super practical and unique. In winter, you'll want to layer up in cosy bamboo pieces that will keep you toasty when the temperatures plummet, and in summer, they'll keep you nice and cool too.
4. It's breathable
Bamboo clothing is given natural ventilation from tiny micro-gaps within the structure of the bamboo fibres. These micro-gaps also pull moisture away from the body, allowing our skin to breathe.
5. It's silky soft
I saved the best til last. Not saying its health and eco benefits aren't the most important reasons to try bamboo clothes, but who doesn't love ultra-comfy clothing? Bamboo clothing is light, luxuriously soft and gentle on the skin – it's basically like wearing a cloud, and it just gets softer and softer with each wash.
But is bamboo clothing really that eco-friendly?
There has been some debate in the industry around whether bamboo clothing actually is environmentally-friendly... One thing I know for certain is that Boody is clear about having the lowest possible environmental footprint for both their garments and supply chain.
