Boody is an Australian brand of underwear and clothing using organic bamboo as the raw material instead of cotton. When bamboo is used to spin a viscose yarn, while it's no longer considered a natural fibre like cotton is, it has a significantly smaller eco-footprint and when done safely and correctly, has no negative environmental impact. Boody ensure their fabric is created on a closed loop system for this reason.
Did you know ......
Bamboo yields up to 30x more material per hectare than cotton does. This means less land is needed to produce the crop.
Cotton requires a lot of pesticides and chemical spraying. Bamboo doesn't. The viscose fibre used in Boody is made from 80% organic bamboo. Their bamboo is FSC certified. Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) are the certifiers of responsible forestry. This ensures there's no habitat loss or destruction in the growth of the bamboo.
Bamboo growing uses only 1/3 of the water that cotton does. This is a big one. Water is something that's always in shortage and as time goes on, we anticipate this is going to continue.
Boody is ultra comfortable
Have you ever tried a garment from Boody? They are super comfortable to wear. It's not just the fabric. Where most cotton underwear will have a strip of elastic sewn around the legs and the waist, in Boody garments, it's cleverly and discreetly woven in to the fabric as it's made. Cotton underwear is 'cut and sew' from a flat piece of fabric. Boody underwear is woven to size & shape, including the bands, so they're way more comfortable. No fabric waste, more comfortable wear. They are also side seam free so there's nothing digging in.
