Bamboo clothes benefits
At Ecoo we love bamboo and we love bamboo clothes. It is ultra soft with a silk like feel. It has many amazing benefits over other fabrics. Bamboo clothing does not need ironing! Your body heat will have it flat in no time. It is breathable and thermoregulating, being cooler in summer and warmer in winter. It is hypoallergenic, ideal for sensitive skin types or those with conditions like eczema. Bamboo fabric is antibacterial and antifungal – it can reduce odours significantly.
We love the eco-friendliness of bamboo. Bamboo is a most sustainable resource, having the world record for growing faster than any other plant. Bamboo is substantially more sustainable than cotton. Also, bamboo has a very low carbon footprint as bamboo crops absorb more carbon dioxide than an equivalent amount of trees. Therefore our bamboo clothing helps the atmosphere by reducing carbon dioxide and increasing oxygen. Bamboo has very low water consumption, requiring minimal irrigation. Whereas cotton requires 20000 litres per kilo.
At Ecoo we ensure our clothing is produced organically, without chemicals. Many bamboo fabrics are produced using chemical methods and this removes the eco-friendly benefits of using bamboo. Our bamboo is grown herbicide free, pesticide free and GMO free. Our manufacturers meet with the international organic standard of OCIA/NOP. Our manufacturers strive towards reducing emissions and recycling waste.
Our clothing is produced ethically and fair trade. Our manufacturers do not employ workers under the age of 18. Their working conditions and pay is fair and in accordance Chinese Government standards. Also they comply with the ISO9001:2000 quality standard.
