Bamboo and Sustainability

Why Bamboo?

🎋 It grows rapidly and no chemicals are used in growing or harvesting bamboo,  providing a cleaner and safer environment for farm workers.

🎋 When harvested it’s simply cut, removed, and re-grows from the base, leaving the ground undisturbed which reduces soil erosion.

🎋 It produces more oxygen than any equivalent stand of trees.

🎋 It gives farmers a more sustainable source of income that isn’t reliant on the cost of chemicals and machinery needed to plant, maintain and harvest other yearly crops, such as cotton. 

The Pussyfoot Socks Difference

🧦 All the bamboo fibres Pussyfoot Socks use are produced using the Lyocell Method under the REACH and OEKO-TEC 100 Standards used across the textile industry.

🧦 Since 2014, Pussyfoot Socks has worked with the same family-run businesses to produce our yarn, fabric and finished goods. We’ve worked side-by-side with the same sock factory – watching them grow from a small family operation in a shed, to a business that employs over 100 people and operates under BSCI accreditation. They pay above awards wages with clean and safe working conditions.

Pussyfoot Socks and Beyond

Pussyfoot Socks will never stop creating revolutionary sustainable products for our customers.

🌏 We’re continuing to move more of our products towards a higher percentage of bamboo as the yarn and fibre technology improves.

🌏 We’ve created the first ever bamboo feather yarn for our fluffy bed socks.

🌏 We’ve added new products in our underwear and sleepwear ranges that utilise new fabric constructions like our bamboo jersey fabric.

🌏 All of our product Header cards are manufactured from Recycled paper without the use of additional dyes or finishes.

🌏 Our Sock Header cards are attached to products using a cotton thread that is 100% biodegradable eliminating the use of a plastic gimble.

🌏 We have conscientiously abolished the use of plastic bags and import products wrapped in a thin band of paper

🌏 As a company, we continue our ethos towards zero plastic and 100% biodegradable packaging

🌏 All of our in-store clothes hangers are made from Recyclable plastics meaning we use Zero single use plastics across our entire range.

Our ultimate goal? To create a sock that can be over 95% bamboo – something we’re currently working on with the development of filament yarns.

Join us on this journey to a more sustainable tomorrow with bamboo.
