I am happy to introduce the first of what I hope will be many products in the future. Bamboo Body was born from my passion for fashion and the environment. Our essentials are comfortable and sustainable. From the bamboo material to the cornstarch packaging, every element of a Bamboo Body product puts the planet and people first.
The fashion industry is a significant contributor to global warming, deforestation, and water scarcity. Clothing's high demand for resources (farmland, water, and petroleum products) and transportations impact make clothing products much worse for the environment than most people realize.
Fast fashion is a term that describes low-quality apparel that has a short product life cycle designed to discard after just a few wears. Most retailers' clothing lines are fast fashion, and why the average American throws away 80 pounds of clothing every year, 85% of which goes straight to the landfill.
Using bamboo fabrics breaks the fast fashion cycle. Bamboo outlasts fabrics such as cotton in keeping shape, strength, and durability. A bamboo product can last three times longer when cared for properly. Textile manufacturing has a significant environmental impact, so wearing what you have longer is one of the best and easiest things you can do to make your clothing eco-friendlier.
I am eager to hear your opinions so we can grow together. Tell me what works, what doesn’t and what you’d like to see in the future. I hope you love your Bamboo Body products as much as I do!
