Eco-Friendly Underwear For Earth Day 2015

Environment4In recognition of Earth Day 2015, The Underwear Expert wants to remind you that your underwear choices can change the world. Maybe not overnight, but choosing environmentally-friendly brands and collections is a step in the right direction — just like that extra strep toward the recycling bin. We may be born naked, but this is the underwear nature intended.

Model Ben Bigler shows off eco-friendly pairs of underwear in Jerrad Matthew’s latest exclusive for The Underwear Expert, many of which are primarily made from bamboo. Bamboo rayon is a popular alternative to cotton, due to the bamboo plant’s need for little water, and a bounty of benefits most men never knew they needed. Bamboo rayon is naturally antibacterial, hypoallergenic, and anti-fungal. The material is even moisture wicking and pleasantly lightweight.

The Icebreaker Anatomica Boxer is easy on the Earth by being made almost entirely from Merino wool. It’s a 150hm fabric, which means it’s lightweight while still having that luxurious wool feel.

aussieBum’s Banana Brief is the pair you bring home to Mother Nature. A simple white brief is accented by a green and yellow waistband, which echoes the pair’s soft and surprising use of materials. It’s made from 64% cotton, 9% elastane, and 27% real banana fiber, taken straight from the banana plant. What could be more earth-friendly (and perfect for Earth Day 2015) than that?
