We all have heard about the necessity of keeping our environment clean and green but most of us are afraid that they will lose their money and time in going green. In reality, however, going green does not require a lot of hard work or serious investment. By turning green, you can actually improve your lifestyle, save both energy and money and reduce your carbon footprints. One of the easiest ways of turning green is to select eco-friendly materials for daily wear.
One of the most eco-friendly fabrics that are becoming popular among eco-conscious people is bamboo viscose. This type of material offers several great benefits to us. By making bamboo fabrics a part of your daily life you can easily cut down your personal carbon footprint and keep your surroundings clean.
Fashion designers have started to recognize the potential of bamboo clothing and they are now experimenting with bamboo viscose. In some ways bamboo is a better choice than even cotton that was until recently considered the best eco-friendly clothing material. The process of making cotton is quite harsh compared to that of making bamboo fibers.
Cultivating bamboo in a sustainable manner is easy and requires no great effort. Bamboo is not really a plant but a type of grass. The bamboo forests deliver a huge amount of oxygen to the surrounding atmosphere. Bamboo cultivation does not require pesticides or fertilizers. Bamboo plantation over huge areas can reduce soil erosion. Due to these reasons, bamboo fabric is being considered greener than other organic options.
The fabric obtained from the leaves of bamboo is very soft and gentle on the skin. People who are allergic to other material can wear the hypoallergenic bamboo fabric. Bamboo fabric can be worn throughout the day without any skin irritation. The fibers have a very smooth and well-rounded surface that makes the bamboo clothing comfortable and softer than other materials.
The bamboo fabric has many pores that evaporate sweat in summers. In winters, moths the bamboo fabric acts as an insulator and makes the wearers feel warm. Bamboo fabric is also anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. This quality of bamboo fabric helps in keeping your skin healthy and infection free.
