Sustainable socks: Make a small change this Earth Day

At SOCKSHOP, we’re just as passionate about caring for your feet as we are about protecting the planet. Our range of sustainable socks made from bamboo helps us to look after both. With Earth Day on 22 April, we wanted to show you how switching to bamboo socks is one small step you can take to be kinder to the environment and your feet!

Every year, Earth Day turns the world’s attention towards climate change. What better opportunity to highlight the environmental benefits of bamboo socks? Not only is it a greener, cleaner material, but bamboo also creates a softer, more breathable and altogether more enjoyable sock wearing experience. So why not dial down your carbon footprint and dial up the comfort with sustainable bamboo socks from SOCKSHOP?

The eco-credentials of bamboo socks

Bamboo socks are the pick of the crop when it comes to sustainable socks. That’s because bamboo comes with some pretty impressive eco-credentials. Believe it or not, bamboo is a type of grass rather than a tree. It’s one of the fastest-growing plants in the world, with some species growing nearly a metre in just 24 hours. Bamboo also self-generates from its own roots and needs less water and fewer pesticides to cultivate than cotton.

As well as saving space and water, bamboo also pumps out 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than the equivalent acreage of trees. If all that wasn’t enough, the benefits of bamboo socks go well beyond their environmentally-friendly status too. This wonder material is also naturally antibacterial, hypoallergenic and wicks away moisture to keep feet fresh and dry. It’s also cool in the warmth and warm in the cold.
