The people at GreenStepsOnline.com were nice enough to give me two pairs of one of their most popular products, EcoSox, to review. EcoSox are made from bamboo woven fabrics, which makes them highly sustainable. Because EcoSox are made from bamboo they are 100% biodegradable, naturally antibacterial, antifungal and antistatic.
There are many benefits of bamboo as it is one of the world’s most renewable resources, is 100% biodegradable, absorbs nitrogen from waste water, and a stand of bamboo when compared to an equivalent stand of trees takes in five times the greenhouse gases.
One pair I was given is designated as casual and the other are designed as athletic socks. The casual pair I have worn around the house and they are very comfortable. They also may be the softest socks I’ve ever worn. EcoSox have spoiled me to not wanting to go back to my regular socks. The other pair, the athletic EcoSox, I have worn while playing golf. I quickly noticed how comfortable they are with my golf shoes. At the end of the round the EcoSox are definitely softer and more moisture resistant than cotton.
I would recommend EcoSox to anyone. They are extremely comfortable and eco-friendly. Also, I bet they are softer than the socks you are wearing right now.
