Bamboo is widely known to be the fastest growing plant in the world! The process of growing bamboo is largely eco-friendly too, as it is naturally organic. The majority of the bamboo grown globally is eco-friendly as it doesn’t require pesticides or fertilisers and needs very little water to produce. In this post I’m sharing eco-friendly and ethically made bamboo yoga wear ideal for staying comfy whilst doing your morning stretch.
Bamboo plants are capable of growing up to four feet a day!

Not only does bamboo grow rapidly, the bamboo plant releases 35% more oxygen in the air compared to other trees of the same size. This rapid growth rate means that bamboo matures within seven years. Once bamboo is growing, the intervention needed is minimal as it does not need to be replanted, each bamboo plant has a vast root network that continuously sprouts new shoots. This helps to improve soil condition and prevent soil erosion too.
Growing of Bamboo?
One of the main contributing factors that make the fashion industry so polluting, is the heavy use of chemicals used in the manufacturing process. Chemicals aren’t needed to grow bamboo. One of the key benefits of bamboo is that it doesn’t need pesticides or fertilisers and only needs natural rainfall to grow.
Yoga wear needs to be stretchy, soft and practical. The Bamboo Clothing range is great as it not only lends itself to yoga, but can be worn for jogging too- given the naturally breathable nature of bamboo as a fabric.
When it comes to practising yoga, particularly in the colder months I prefer to wear a super soft, cosy base layer, that way my body temperature stays warm and my joints are less stiff!
This bamboo jersey base layer is soft, stretchy and brilliantly insulating for total comfort when your heading outdoors or practising yoga in the chilly winter months.
Bamboo naturally absorbs moisture from the skin and so it’s the ideal fabric for working out. It also takes half the time to dry compared to cotton clothes.
Are Chemicals Use To Produce Bamboo?
When it comes to the production process of bamboo there is a big question around just how eco-friendly it can be. At Bamboo Clothing their main concern was the management of the chemicals required to make bamboo pulp into bamboo viscose fibre. They pride themselves on taking their environmental responsibility seriously and have not only invested millions of dollars in waste-treatment but have committed to becoming a world-leader in sustainable viscose production.
