Bamboo clothing is now a staple product at health food stores, farmers’ markets, and even pharmacies. Here’s why this oh-so-soft fabric is good for you, and good for the planet.
1. Bamboo fabric is antibacterial
Ever find that you can’t get that sweaty smell out of your gym clothes, no matter how many times you wash them? Props to Boody for solving this problem; their bamboo clothing range includes everything from undies to activewear and is naturally odour-resistant. The ‘secret’? An inherent antibacterial and antifungal bioagent which is retained through the fabrication process and post-washing. Hello, clean clothes.
2. Bamboo clothing is loved by sensitive skin
With hypoallergenic properties, Boody’s bamboo clothing shouldn’t irritate sensitive skin, being ideal not just for babies, but anyone with inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and rosacea.
3. Bamboo is exercise & warm weather-friendly
The bamboo fibres in Boody clothing are unique as they contain micro-gaps, which provide ventilation and pull moisture away from the body. By allowing your skin to breathe, bamboo fibres can also reduce the likelihood of bacne.
4. Bamboo clothing is a sustainable choice
Boody utilises organically grown and regenerative bamboo, cultivated without pesticides, insecticides, or fertilisers. Of all the woody plants, bamboo also happens to be the fastest-growing, with some bamboo species gaining an extra metre of length daily.
To top that off, bamboo plantations promote better air quality, producing 30 per cent more oxygen, and absorbing a greater amount of carbon and dioxide and greenhouse gases than a tree plantation of the same size.
5. Bamboo clothing feels heavenly
Cooling, calming, and feather-soft and light, once you give Boody’s bamboo clothing a go, you’ll find it hard to go back to wearing anything else.
