"Eco Active Lifestyle For Free Souls"
Why does Green Apple choose organic over synthetic fabrics
What you put on your body is just as important as what you put into it especially when you are wearing it for physical activity. When you choose to wear natural fibers you are choosing to not use synthetic petroleum by-products, like polyester , supplex nylon (plastic derivatives), commonly found in almost all athletic apparel. These synthetics are known hormone and thyroid disrupters and will not biodegrade without serious harm to living organisms and our planet earth we live in.
It's a scientific fact that the chemicals in the fabrics you wear penetrate into your skin and are absorbed by your body when you sweat. Synthetic fibers made from petroleum by-products have been liked to numerous health problems. In addition to their negative impact on the environment, these type of textiles are found in our oceans, land fills, and digestive tracts of living creatures throughout our environment and do not biodegrade for 100's of years leaving behind harmful residues and effects to all living organisms. Unfortunately, most people are unaware of the chemical side effects (hormone disrupters and thyroid problems) of the apparel they wear. Especially for athletes who wear form fitting apparel that normally perspire heavily opening up all their pores to these chemicals to enter there blood stream.
Why Choose Bamboo?
Bamboo has been our choice for all our clothing fabrics because of its many benefits but the primary reason is because of its organic nature which brings benefits to both the environment and people who wear it as clothes. Its soft, smooth and comfortable on the skin thanks to the fine molecules of bamboo. This makes clothes made from bamboo fabric a great choice for activewear clothing where comfort is of utmost importance. Adding to that is the ability of bamboo fabric to absorb moisture on your skin so wearing it during workouts actually helps you keep dry thanks to its natural breathable feature.
Bamboo fabric is also hypoallergenic which makes it perfect for heat and sweat sensitive skin. It has antibacterial properties that prevents odor build up particularly when you stash them inside your gym bags after workouts.
