About this project

When we created Eco step we really wanted to focus on a product that was both Eco friendly and stylish.

The world is changing, people are using new mediums when creating products. One of these mediums is bamboo. I've seen bamboo watches, bamboo sunglasses and now its time for the Bamboo Socks!

When thinking of bamboo you typically think of something that's itchy, but it's actually just the opposite. Bamboo socks are super comfortable and have a number of other benifits:
• Antibacterial – keeps you odor free and feeling and smelling fresh
• Highly sweat absorbent (Pulls moisture from skin for evaporation – moisture wicking) – keeps you dry
• Powerfully insulating – keeps you cooler in summer and warmer in winter
• One of the softest fabrics on the planet – you’ll love the way it feels
• Naturally UV protectant – protect yourself from skin cancer
• Hypoallergenic – natural bamboo does not cause allergic reactions
• One of the most eco-friendly fabrics on the planet – help save your planet

Our socks are 70% bamboo and 30% cotton

We only have a few samples and want to bring this to the masses, the problem is that minimums for socks and the designs that we want are quite large, thus we can't just order a couple socks to get this going, we have to order around a thousand pairs of each design!

I am lucky enough to say that I'm part of an Eco-friendly company every day, NOW its your turn to make a difference!

Risks and challenges

We have had the challenge of getting minimums as low as possible so that we don't end up with 20,000 socks and zero buyers. We also wanted to make sure that bamboo is all that its cracked up to be, we actually learned quite a bit about its breathability and quality of fabric. Shipping is always a challenge, we will make sure that the product gets to you in a reasonable time in perfect condition.
