It often takes a series of small steps to make a difference in our own health and the betterment of the planet. These adaptions in our lifestyle, purchases and eating habits can add up in the long run. We all know to switch off our lights, recycle more and avoid single use plastic. But, some of us are less aware of the potential of what we wear.
While you made have heard of – or noshed on – bamboo, you may not realize that bamboo is a renewable resource. In fact, bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world; some species growing over three feet in a single day! And, much like grass, bamboo does not require replanting. In fact, Bamboo can be continually re-harvested with no damage to the surrounding environment.
With seven billion people inhabiting the planet today, being consciously aware of our choices can make a huge impact on our earth’s resources. While many people are aware that bamboo is used for food and shelter, others have never heard of bamboo clothing. The people at Boody Wear are out to prove that, not only is their brand of under garments and activewear practical and comfortable, it might just help to save the world.
And, guess what? We’re offering you two chances to win your own shopping spree at Boody Wear. Two Grand Prize Winners will receive a $300 eGift card towards products of their choice at Boody Wear. That’s a total value of $600.00. Who’s ready to win? Click below to enter now:
Boody Eco Wear
You might be thinking, “Bamboo sounds too good to be true. What’s the compromise?” We’ve been programmed to assume there has to be some form of trade-off with switching to environmental products; soaps don’t always lather up so well. Food products might not taste as good or be more expensive. However, there are actually superior benefits to bamboo eco-wear. Bamboo is revered for its speed of growth, but also its strength which used in building structures. This tensile strength adds to the durability of bamboo clothing. Simultaneously, these products are exceptionally soft and feel great against the skin. As Ron and I can attest, Boody Wear is softer, silkier, cooler and more comfortable than typical man-made fibers.
The Cotton Comparison
Did You Know? Bamboo requires very little water, making it twice as efficient as trees. Cotton, on the other hand, is a thirsty crop which can require over 5,000 gallons of water to produce a bit more than 2 pounds of cotton. Conversely, bamboo requires only 130 gallons of water to produce 3 pounds and requires no irrigation at all.
The Bamboo Process
Bamboo is a great choice when searching for a truly sustainable and affordable material. It grows rapidly, much like grass, which leads to large yields in harvest and successful regeneration. This means that plantations require no extensive farming methods and provide a natural, advantageous harvest. The dense planting and quick cycles also mean that plantations are small. This is the opposite to all those damaging palm oil plantations. Compact, natural and environmental, these small plantations with drought-resistant crop also means less water use. Add to the fact that these plants require no artificial pesticides, and it is hard not to love this approach.
Feeling is Believing
There’s an abundance of reasons to try bamboo when searching for new undergarments or active wear. The soft, strong material is far more pleasing and assures a more environmentally sourced material. The underwear is cooling while the socks, tees and undies are all made from viscose derived from bamboo; perfect for sensitive skin. Boody Eco Wear offers affordable luxury that looks great, feels amazing, and keeps you cool and comfy. Watch now:

Put a (Sustainable) Sock on It
The Boody Wear line of bamboo socks for both men and women is quite impressive. Ron and I both wear them and can attest, they feel like little pillows under your feet. They have every style and I love the ladies’ liners which are perfect for those ballet flats or even under your uncomfortable heels where you want a discreet sock that’s not an eye sore. What makes the sock line so fabulous is they are odor-resistant, hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking and breathable. They have every style perfect for the gym or Pilates, a night out or during travel. Yes friends, these socks are comfortably cooling and well, cool.
