Boody’s essentials are so comfy you might not want to take them off anymore. The basics are designed to be worn over and over again and the quality and look of the items definitely help with that.
Bamboo weave regulates temperature and is breathable for extra comfort when hot or cold. It grows without any pesticides, insecticides or fertilizers. It requires only rainwater to grow. And, did you know, bamboo is actually grass? A huge grass that grows so fast that it produces 30% more oxygen compared to an equivalent area of trees while absorbing more CO2 and leading to less erosion (the roots can stay intact when harvesting the grass on top!).
The level of sustainability of fabric made from bamboo is a hot topic and highly dependent on what process was used to make textile out of the grass. It is therefore important to highlight that Boody’s bamboo yarn is Ecocert certified. Also, all forests that the bamboo is harvested from are FSC-certified for production and supply chain best practices. This means the farming process does not contribute to natural habitat loss. All Boody products are also PETA-Approved (vegan). More certifications like OEKO-TEX and ISO (14001 and 9001) as well as partnerships with SGS and Intertek can help Boody customers rest assured that no harmful chemicals are in contact with their skin, and product are tested for their sustainability and quality at different stages of their production cycle.
Boody works according to their strict code of conduct with top-rated factories that meet the highest standards of labor and environmental practices. It ensures the principles of respect, fairness, safety and sustainability being applied throughout their supply chain. In addition, their factories are accredited by Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) to guarantee and promote lawful, human and ethical conditions for workers in the textile industry. Waste is reduced in the production process by using state-of-the-art computer knitting machines that transform the organic bamboo into the most comfortable, seamless garments. The bamboo grows solely through rainwater and all water used in the production process is recycled and reused. Read more about Boody’s ethics and eco credentials here.
