What are the benefits of Bamboo socks?

Benefit of Bamboo socks #1: Environmentally Friendly

Absorb pollution

  • Bamboo plants absorb large amounts of Carbon-dioxide (a green-house gas that contributes to climate change).

Produce oxygen

  • Photosynthesis is the process whereby plants create oxygen.Bamboo is one of the most efficient plants at this process. Producing approximately 30-35% more oxygen than similar trees. 

Require less water to grow

  • Bamboo requires close to 30% less water to grow than similar fibres such as cotton.


  • Bamboo re-grows at such a fast rate (has a Guinness world record for the fastest grower on the planet!) It is a renewable source of material.

No pesticides

  • Due to Bamboo’s antimicrobial properties, the plant itself can be grown without the use of any harsh chemicals or pesticides.
