The Bamboo fabric that we use in Green Apple Active comes from the pulp of the bamboo grass, which is one of the fastest-growing grasses on earth. The bamboo plant does not need pesticides or fertilizers for its growth. As a result, the increased usage of the bamboo fabric and the increased cultivation of the plant contribute to a healthier and more sustainable environment. Moreover, it is 100% biodegradable; hence, it plays a vital role in reducing pollution.
The cultivation of the bamboo plant does not require a huge amount of water. It grows well with only rainwater, and little or no extra water. Therefore, the conservation of resources such as water by the increased usage of this fabric contributes greatly to a better environment.
Bamboo fabric has various positive effects on the human body. It is known that plastic and polyester cause hormonal problems, and lead to many diseases, including skin cancer and various other types of cancers, skin problems, and respiratory infections. Using bamboo fabric, instead of plastic or polyester, is a great way to prevent harmful effects on the human body.
Unlike most synthetic fibers, bamboo clothing has a natural deodorizing attribute. It does not leave a stench, even after being used for a few days, as it does not provide a suitable living environment for bacteria. Its antibacterial properties are the result of a bacteriologic bio agent, known as "Bamboo Kun". The Bamboo Kun adheres to the cellulose in the bamboo plant, and hence, it is retained even after the plant is processed to make the fiber.
Bamboo fabric does not cling to the skin. It is found to be 12 times more antistatic than cotton. This is due to the fact that it is hydroscopic, and has the capacity to absorb three times its weight in water. As a result, it assists in keeping the skin drier, and sits closer to the skin than regular synthetic fiber.
Another feature of bamboo fabric is its versatility. It can be worn during various activities, from working out in the gym to skiing, as it is very comfortable and gives a soft feel to the skin. Moreover, bamboo fabric adapts to the body temperature, and provides comfort in both warm and cool surroundings.
The bamboo fabric is dyed with a particular UV-absorbing material, which prevents almost 98% of the ultraviolet rays of the sun from reaching the skin, which helps in preventing skin cancer.
Bamboo fabric contains spaces between each fabric fiber, allowing the skin to breathe. This results in less abrasive damage to the skin, and hence, it is more suitable than synthetic fiber for people with sensitive skin or skin conditions such as eczema.
Hence, it can be seen that bamboo fabric helps both the environment and the individual. It is highly biodegradable, and supports in tackling the greenhouse effect. The plant does not need much water, pesticides or fertilizers for its growth, making it an ecological wonder. Besides this, it provides tremendous comfort as a fabric, and helps prevent various diseases.
