bamboo-forestWe’ve been there: armpit stains in cotton shirts. Regrets over wearing spandex half a mile into your run. Memories of stinky gym classes in 90’s polyester tracksuits. Now, scientists and manufacturers have turned something you’ve seen many times before into clothing: bamboo.

Bamboo technology is changing the game of athletic wear, and there’s a strong case in favor of bamboo that will leave even cotton in the dust. tasc Performance is leading the bamboo revolution with practical, comfortable, and cute performance wear that you can win through giveaways on the Red Rover Camping Facebook Page (giveaway’s over, but sign up for our Freebies Newsletter to stay up to date on future chances to win)!

Bamboo clothing has some natural qualities that keep you cool, fresh, and dry.

Shirts like from tasc Performance keep you 2° – 3° cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter due to its bamboo thermal qualities. Bamboo clothing can dry twice as fast as cotton, absorbing moisture before it quickly evaporates while other materials keep all the sweat in as it clings to your body.

One study showed that when bacteria was incubated on bamboo fabric, there was a 70% death rate of bacteria, showing that the make up of bamboo is naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal, leaving you healthier and odor-free.

Have sensitive skin? Bamboo clothing is non-irritating, made without chemical additives and as soft as wearing silk or cashmere.

Eco-Friendly and Organic Clothing

Bamboo technology is not only healthier for you; it’s better for the environment compared to other fabrics. If you’ve ever dealt with bamboo, you know it grows quickly and constantly without need for fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. Not only does bamboo release 35% more oxygen than trees, it also helps rebuild eroded soil and improves soil quality. Your synthetic clothes? Those fabrics were made from petrochemicals, non-renewable fossil fuels, and when they decompose, they release methane gas. Bamboo clothing is 100% biodegradable, and tasc Performance gets their bamboo from a forest that is certified organic by the USDA and the Organic Crop Improvement Association.
