Why Bamboo Polo Shirts Are Eco Friendly

Made of bamboo fabric, this polo shirt is both environmentally friendly and soft on the skin. This breathable and UV protective fabric is antibacterial, anti-odor, wicks away sweat and keeps you cool during the summer. Embroider this bamboo blend polo shirt to display your company logo and promote an eco-friendly attitude.


Bamboo in its natural state is highly sustainable and has great eco friendly qualities, however, turning bamboo into a silky soft fabric that shoppers love is a very intensive chemical process. This process is called viscose processing and it is not very good for the environment.

Unlike cotton, bamboo can grow in poor soil quality and can actually help to restore eroded land. Additionally, bamboo can absorb toxins and chemicals in the soil and help to reduce the spread of disease.

The blend of polyester and bamboo in this men’s polo shirt is an excellent choice for any environmentally conscious company looking to show their green credentials. The breathable bamboo fabric is antibacterial, odour inhibiting and moisture wicking. Add a custom embroidered logo for the perfect corporate workwear solution.


There is a belief that bamboo fabric has natural anti-bacterial properties. This is due to a bio-agent in bamboo called ‘bamboo kun’. This supposedly prevents bacteria from growing on the fabric, resulting in less odour. However, research shows that this does not apply to bamboo viscose fabrics as the kun is lost in processing to bamboo rayon.

Our bamboo polo shirts blend cotton and bamboo viscose at 70:30 which makes them the ultimate performance t-shirt for all of your fishing and outdoors activities. Soft, breathable, odour inhibiting, and moisture wicking, they will keep you cool, dry and comfortable all day long! The perfect t-shirt for your next adventure.


The natural anti-odor properties of bamboo fabric help to combat the smell of body odor. While many synthetic fabrics will intensify body odor, bamboo naturally fights it to keep you feeling fresher for longer.

This breathable fabric allows moisture vapor to pass through the garment, dispersing perspiration quickly. Its breathability also helps to regulate the temperature inside of the garment – keeping you cooler when it’s hot and warmer when it’s cool.
