The Bamboo Power
by Karla Sifontes on Sep 16, 2021
The lovely quality and diverse use of this evergreen plant makes it an amazing option for clothing if we compare it with other fabrics such as the popular but extremely unsustainable polyester, acrylic and conventional cotton. But seriously, is this fast-growing plant advantageous?
The material is biodegradable and sustainable in the growing phase, bamboo is the fastest-growing woody plant in the world. It can grow up to four feet in one day, also it avoids the extensive use of pesticides like in non-organic cotton production, and production is not as chemically intensive as polyester.
The panda’s kryptonite absorbs five times more carbon dioxide and produces 35% more oxygen than a similar group of trees.
It is super soft, strong and durable. It keeps you cooler in summers and warmer in winters so you can wear it the whole year making you save money. Keeps your body odour free, feeling and smelling fresh even after end of the day because bamboo possesses ‘Bamboo Kun’, which is a natural antimicrobial bio-agent found in the plant, allowing it to naturally flourish and grow in the wild without the use of pesticides or fertilisers. This beneficial quality of the bamboo remains in its textile form, killing all bacteria keeping the wearer feeling fresher and odour free for longer, making the garment healthier and more hygienic.
It might not be perfect but at Naked Nation we are working extremely hard in order to minimise pollution and provide you with great products by using the best materials available in the market.
