Are you tired of feeling uncomfortable in your traditional cotton or synthetic underwear? If so, it’s time to switch to the best option out there: bamboo viscose! Not only is it organic and ethical, but it also provides unbeatable comfort. Need more reasons to make the switch? Here are five to get you started:


Ethical Production Processes

One key reason to switch to Bamboo viscose underwear is its ethical production process. Many companies now use environmentally friendly methods in their manufacturing processes to create ethical products that won’t harm the environment. Aussie-born brand Step One is one such company. Using 100% organically grown and FSC certified Bamboo viscose to make their fabrics, even the packaging is 100% certified home compostable, and doesn’t contain toxins, meaning it creates less greenhouse gas emissions than standard plastics.

Extensive research was also conducted in the product testing phase with Step One CEO, Greg Taylor travelling to over 30 factories before settling on one. “I quickly learned what to look out for,” explains Greg. “Even during the lockdowns, I had associates drop into the factories at random times to check on the conditions and I was doing regular FaceTime calls with the workers. These things are very important to me, I will not compromise profits over being humane to the workers.”



Bamboo viscose underwear provides superior comfort compared to its counterparts. Bamboo fibers are incredibly soft and gentle against skin, making them more comfortable than traditional fabrics such as cotton or synthetic materials. They’re also more breathable and absorbent, being especially beneficial when the weather is hot and humid. Not only does it keep you cool, but it’s also highly absorbent, wicking away moisture from your body. Thanks to this excellent sweat-wicking property of bamboo fabric, you can stay dry and comfortable throughout the day.




If you’re looking for an eco-friendly alternative to traditional fabrics, bamboo viscose underwear might be just what you need! Unlike cotton, which requires large amounts of water and energy to produce, bamboo grows quickly without requiring a lot of resources or energy input. This means that it takes much less energy to produce a sustainable product like bamboo viscose underwear compared to conventional textile products such as cotton or synthetic fabrics. Plus, since bamboo fibers come from a renewable resource, they don’t create additional waste in our environment as opposed to other textiles which require large amounts of resources for production and can easily end up as non-biodegradable waste once discarded.



Bamboo viscose is also hypoallergenic, which makes it a great choice for those with sensitive skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis since it won’t irritate these issues further as other fabrics might. It’s also naturally antibacterial which means that it’s resistant to bad odors caused by sweat and body oils – perfect if you live an active lifestyle!



Finally, bamboo viscose offers superior durability when compared to other materials like cotton or synthetic fabrics, so you can rest assured that your favorite pair of panties will last longer than ever before. The strong fibers mean that even after multiple washes they’ll still look good as new while remaining breathable and comfortable throughout the entire process – something that traditional materials just can’t guarantee.

These are just some of the many reasons why switching to bamboo viscose underwear should be a top priority on your list. With its ethical production processes, sup

 Always wear fabulous underwear, even if you are the only person who is going to see it.

Step One came about from a true problem-solution situation. Greg was hiking, suffering chafing, and there was no product on the market that solved it. He jumped on a plane and developed the product on his own with no prior clothing/textile experience, he launched Step One a few months later online and the rest is history.
A pair of Step Ones is sold every 8 seconds around the world. Step One has a huge focus on the planet, being FSC-certified end to end and being fully certified both ethically and sustainably.
