How Sustainable Is Boody?

Boody is an Australian womenswear, menswear, and babywear apparel brand that focuses on loungewear, activewear, sleepwear, and undergarments. Boody uses  organic bamboo, organic cotton, LYOLYTE® (bamboo lyocell), and small amounts of spandex in their products.  

The raw bamboo Boody employs to produce Boody’s signature bamboo viscose yarn is certified to be organic by Ecocert SA precisely corresponding to the Ecocert Organic standard. This bamboo is grown using rainwater and when harvested every part of the mature  plant is used in production of products, making the bamboo plantation extremely low on waste and excessive water use. Additionally, the immature bamboo plants have been proven to naturally produce oxygen while still growing as well as absorbing carbon dioxide and greenhouse gasses from their surrounding areas. Furthermore, all bamboo associated with the production of Boody’s merchandise is obtained from FSC-certified forests or plantations that follow FSC-defined practices throughout harvesting, production, and supply chain fulfilment. 

The LYOLYTE® material that Boody employs in their products is their own exclusive creation of the sustainable lyocell textile made by using organically-grown bamboo. Producing LYOLYTE® fabrics requires half as much water compared to cotton and the process is 100% free from toxic chemicals. The production of  LYOLYTE® is also a closed loop system, meaning the factories that create this material reuse textile waste that is made during the production process for other products. And LYOLYTE® is biodegradable and 100% compostable within 2–6 months, making it an extremely sustainable fabric.

Boody’s factories and factory partners use advanced computer knitting machines to manufacture garments without seams, invariably meaning textile wastage is very minimal. In these factories, all water consumed in the production process for Boody products is recycled and reused. Air pollution due to emissions are kept to the most reduced level possible, and Boody is constantly updating their modern facilities to become even more eco-friendly.

Also Boody’s packaging is created with the environment in mind. This brand utilizes sustainable packaging made from recycled, post-consumer waste from FSC-certified suppliers, that prioritize the safeguarding of natural ecosystems and deforestation prevention. Additionally, Boody only prints with sustainable non-toxic vegetable-based inks and all online orders arrive in biodegradable garment bags constructed from compostable corn-based PLA plastic.
