If you start asking questions about sustainable clothing fabric in the same way that you look at food labels, and ask questions about the food that you eat, you can help to fundamentally change the way clothes are made. Before we list sustainable fabrics, we will look at what is a sustainable fabric and the list of types of fabric. This will help consumers make mindful and conscious choices.
Bamboo is an eco-friendly, hypoallergenic natural fiber that has strong anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is a flowering evergreen perennial plant and there are around a thousand different varieties. This diversity makes it more adaptable to different climates than most other softwoods.
The bamboo plant consumes more carbon dioxide (CO2) and generates up to 35% more Oxygen (O2) than an equivalent stand of trees. So it provides an abundance of usable oxygen, making it a crucial element in the balance between oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
