bamboo clothes

Let's start at the beginning: What's so eco about bamboo clothing? Most of the enviro-benefits of bamboo clothes have to do with bamboo farming. There is no USDA organic certification for bamboo, which is why you won't see any bamboo clothes with the familiar organic logo. However, unlike conventional cotton, bamboo grows quickly without requiring chemicals or pesticides. Even better, bamboo fabrics have antibacterial, anti-fungal, and deodorizing properties -- meaning you likely won't need to wash them as often.
