Utilizing the unique Biospherically Correct rating methodology we have appraised our bamboo apparel and provided a Biospherically Correct rating of (1). The shortcomings that currently exist in the manufacturing processes involved in textile production in general, as well as today's customary logistical practices (see Eco Processes), represent the areas for improvement towards a higher Biospherically Correct rating. Please support us as we strive to continually improve our products for you.
Bamboo adds to the greater biospheric services of the planet through its impressive oxygen production and benefits local eco systems due to minimal water requirements and by reducing erosion (see Green Ingredients). Commercial plantations need to be carefully planned and planted with a non invasive species of bamboo so as not to upset regional ecosystem balance.
Bamboo also has many uses. Animals and humans have long used various parts of the bamboo plant for subsistence: medicine, religion, shelter, tools and wearable clothes:
Bamboo can be grown quickly, abundantly and without negatively impacting the environment:
Organic cotton, though requiring more water than bamboo, is made using non genetically modified plants grown without synthetic chemicals and fertilizers. Pests are controlled naturally through beneficial habitat planting, conserving bio-diversity. Organically grown crops yield soils that have more organic matter creating a thicker topsoil which may help to prevent soil erosion.
Our bamboo fibre is organically grown in China and our supplier uses low impact reactive dyes and re uses or recycles much of its chemical by product (see Eco Processes).
Our garments carry the words love, forgiveness, compassion, tolerance and integrity, encouraging a sense of personal wellbeing and a message of social cohesiveness. Proceeds go towards Vision for Humanity Charitable Trust initiatives.
Bamboo fabric is incredibly soft, yet durably high performance:
Low impact reactive dyes are readily absorbed into the material producing great colour that lasts well throughout the life of the product. Washing is no fuss and economical; cold water washing gives a great result and saves on electricity as well. Bleaching and fabric softeners are not necessary. Bamboo fabric doesn't hold odour so you may not need to wash your garments as frequently as other clothing, potentially reducing water consumption.
There are two methods of bamboo fabric production:
While we understand the short-comings of the second method, it's currently necessary for us to utilise bamboo rayon to make the obvious benefits of bamboo fabric available to the public. Our fabric supplier:
Our garment clothing labels are made from recycled paper printed with vegetable inks and attached with jute. At the end of use please gift apparel to a local clothing bin or recycle into smaller pieces for cleaning cloths and then compost at end of life.
