Key Benefits to Bamboo Clothing
- Highly Sustainable
- Moisture Wicking
- Odor Resistant
- Sun Protective
1. Highly Sustainable:
Unlike other fabrics, which are generally made from unsustainable materials and treated with chemical finishes to give them performance characteristics, bamboo is produced from natural fibers.
The bamboo tree is the fastest growing tree in the world, growing up to three feet in height every 24 hours.
Bamboo trees are very beneficial for the environment, as each tree releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere and absorbs more carbon dioxide compared to other plants.
Because of these features, bamboo greatly decreases the amount of greenhouse gases. In addition, bamboo can be harvested and grown in the same area indefinitely, so farmers do not need to clear land to replant new shoots of bamboo.
Due to its naturally beneficial fibers, bamboo fabric does not have to be treated with chemical treatments to get its performance benefits. This makes bamboo fabric manufacturing much more sustainable as there is no release of harmful chemicals into water systems and ultimately the environment.
The water used during the manufacturing can therefore be recycled. In fact, about 99% of all wastewater from bamboo fabric factories can be recovered, treated, and reused in a closed-loop process that helps keep treated water out of the ecosystem.
2. Ultra Comfortable
Bamboo is the softest, most comfortable fabric on the market today. Say goodbye to cotton!
3. Moisture Wicking
Bamboo is naturally moisture wicking as bamboo plants typically grow in warm, humid climates. This performance fabric does not have any chemicals added.
4. Odor Resistant
Naturally odor resistant qualities repel harmful chemicals and mask against body odors.
5. Sun Protective
Bamboo has a UPF rating of 40+, providing consistently strong protection against harmful UV rays.
More breathable than cotton and synthetic fabrics, ensuring you stay cool for hours on the water.
Naturally hypoallergenic as bamboo is not treated with chemical finishes to obtain any of its great performance qualities.
