In a world of decreasing resources, it has become more important for us to act responsibly and to use products that don’t harm the environment.
This philosophy even spreads to the world of socks, where natural fibres from sustainable crops and sources should be encouraged, while suppliers and buyers need to take a second look at the damage behind the processes that produce artificial fibres.
The long and the short of it is this: Do you like socks? Do you like living on this planet? If the answer to both of these questions is “yes”, then you should seriously consider looking into socks produced from organic and natural sources.
Socks made from bamboo fibre are a natural choice, but if you are truly committed to a green lifestyle, try to find out if the bamboo was harvested sustainably, and that the end product is fairtrade. The same goes for cotton socks – fairtrade and organic socks are available, and not only do they feel great on your feet, but you can wear them with a clean conscience.
