To take full advantage of the anti-bacterial and anti-odour properties of bamboo – Bamboo Textiles have developed the Mens Trunks, contemporary style in a modern colour range. 95% bamboo fibre component with 5% elastane to produce very comfortable trunks that keep their shape and are very durable.
Look at how the bacteria is eliminated. No more unpleasant body odour. Bamboo has been grown for millennia in Asia without the use of pesticides. It is rarely attacked by any pests and not susceptible to diseases. The reason for this, Japanese scientists have found, is a unique anti-bacterial agent of bamboo named “bamboo kun”. This substance, combined with the tight molecular structure of bamboo fibres, are believed to give it its anti-bacterial and bacteriostatic properties – which is not diminished even after more than 50 washes! It is also quite different from chemical additives which can often cause skin irritations and other problems. Bamboo Mens Trunks
Why do pandas eat bamboo?
Scientists think the iconic black and white bears switched to eating bamboo in part because it’s extremely abundant and they don’t have to fight with other animals to get it. Bamboo is high in fiber but has a low concentration of nutrients, so pandas have to eat 20 to 40 pounds of the stuff every day just to get by.
