The popularity of eco-friendly fashion has been steadily increasing over the past years. Uptown Sweat’s use of premium bamboo blend fabric combines a great design aesthetic with sustainability, bringing luxurious athleisure wear with a kind consideration to the planet.

Whether you’re a student squeezing in gym time between classes and demanding schoolwork, a mom balancing carpools and yoga classes, or simply a busy woman constantly on the go, here are the top reasons why Uptown Sweats’ stylish and eco-friendly garments are much needed additions to your wardrobe:

Good for the planet: Bamboo is 100% biodegradable and compostable. It is the fastest growing plant in the world and is grown without any pesticides or fertilizers. It also requires very little water to grow and is a drought tolerant plant.

Hypoallergenic: Since bamboo has no chemical treatments, it will not irritate the skin and is a great fabric for those who have allergies or sensitive skin.

Ideal for hectic lifestyles: When you’re trying to meet deadlines and appointments, the last thing you have time to worry about is your hygiene. Bamboo clothing has superior anti-bacterial qualities that make it odor-resistant, so you don’t have to stress about going straight from the gym to the office. Bacteria do not live well on bamboo fabric, so wearing bamboo decreases the germs that are usually found on the skin and clothing.

For use all year-round: Bamboo contains hollow microfibers that makes it very breathable and pulls moisture away from the skin, so even when it’s hot outside and you’re sweating, bamboo fabric will not cling to your skin the way that other fabrics such as cotton do. Bamboo also has naturally insulating qualities, so it will also help keep you warm in the winter.

Protects you from the sun: Bamboo cuts out more than 95% of harmful UV rays, making it a great choice of fabric for outdoor wear.

Super soft and comfortable: Bamboo fabric is incredibly soft and is easily comparable to luxurious cashmere and silk, but is more affordable while retaining the same quality and durability.
