Cotton and polyester two of the most popular materials to make Tshirts although comfortable, are also environmentally draining. While cotton demands huge quantities of water to grow, polyester is essentially a thermoplastic polymer made from coal and petroleum.

Bamboo, on the other hand, is a fast growing grass that is grown commercially. It is a versatile plant that uses onethird the water that cotton needs and also helps absorb more CO2 than hardwoods, also preventing soil erosion. Bamboo tribe utilises these qualities of the grass to make good quality and stylish garments.

Partner story

The duo behind Bamboo tribe are trying to bring about sustainable change in a space that is rapidly moving toward unsustainability. At a time where the craze is Fast Fashion low prices, no emphasis on quality, discarding clothes frequently and staying on trend  we see the need to shift in the other direction, and fast. In a world fast running out of space and resources, we should be buying highquality clothes that last long and remain timeless in style, while also ensuring that the materials used to make them are not destroying our planet. This is what  Bamboo Tribe aims to do: produce highquality, welltailored, wardrobe staples, made from butterysoft bamboo fabric, better for you and the environment.

Your impact

By purchasing apparel from the Bamboo Tribe, you are supporting the sustainable fashion industry. With each Bamboo Tribe Original that you add to your wardrobe, you're making a statement that quality matters, wastefulness is passe and you won't buy just anything that big corporations say you need to have. Each garment made by this organisation has saved hundreds of litres of water during its production. Your Tshirt will still be comfortable, stylish and versatile; but each time you wear one from Bamboo Tribe, you are backing an ecofriendly, sustainable apparel organisation fighting against the wastefulness of fast fashion.

Why is bamboo better than cotton and polyester?

The Tshirt. A wardrobe staple for most. We often have heaps of them in our cupboards too. They are generally lowmaintenance, versatile and comfortable. Chances are most tshirts in your wardrobe are made from cotton, and the rest (mostly used for exercise and sports) are made from polyester. This is where the problem lies. Did you know that your Tshirts could be causing a huge damaging impact on the environment? 

Bamboo on the other hand uses less than 30% of the water to grow than cotton does per acre. In addition, the yield of Bamboo per acre is atleast 50 times that of cotton, which means overall the fibre needed to make a Bamboo tshirt could use 150 times less water than cotton. We currently use a 50:50 blend of Bamboo and cotton (for increased tenacity), which means every Bamboo Tribe Tee saves approximately 1850 Litres of water! 

Bamboo can use as little 150 times less water than cotton!

Washing our clothes less frequently can also help reduce consumption of water, which is fast becoming a scarce resource. While this may sound strange to you, as we are all driven to believe that our clothes must be washed after every use, this simply isn't the case. And here's where Bamboo shines again. Being naturally antimicrobial, Bamboo fabric kills bacteria that can be harmful and also cause odour. While it's up to you to decide how often you want to wash your clothes, Bamboo Tribe Originals certainly don't need to be washed as frequently as its cotton and polyester counterparts.

The other two main impacts of cotton are the use of pesticides and soil erosion. Some studies show that nearly 25% of the world's pesticide use is purely to grow cotton for fabric. That's massive. Also, growing cotton erodes the soil it is planted on due to extensive ploughing which causes the topsoil to be washed away. On the other hand, Bamboo requires little to no pesticides to grow, once again due to it's natural antimicrobial property, and since bamboo shoots are only cut off to form new shoots rather than uprooting the plant itself, soil erosion does not occur. In fact, Bamboo's extensive root system binds the soil, protecting against erosion, as well as dripfeeding excess water into the soil to raise the water table.

The Lowdown  Bamboo wins

Bamboo fibres can use as little 150 times less water than cotton
Bamboo plantations can raise the water table
Bamboo fabric doesn't need to be washed as often as cotton and polyester
Bamboo can be grown without pesticides
Bamboo's root system protects against soil erosion
Bamboo is not composed of thermoplastics

And best of all, bamboo is light, soft and breathable in fact, more so than even Egyptian cotton AND it is moisturewicking and naturally antiodour. So you could practically replace BOTH cotton and polyester with Bamboo clothes!

Stay comfortable. Stay smart. Stay responsible. Switch to Bamboo.

WHICH COUNTRIES DO WE SHIP TO?  Currently we ship only within India.

SHIPPING COSTS AND TRANSIT TIMES

Items are processed and readied for shipping within 7 business days after receiving the order.

We try to deliver the products to you within 7-10 days after dispatch, within major metro city limits. However, the duration of the delivery can take upto 25 working days depending on your delivery location.

The Better India is not responsible for service transit time. Delivery time to the end user is subject to factors beyond our control ("Force Majeure Event") including unexpected travel delays from our courier partners and transporters due to weather conditions and strikes.

Transit times are provided by the carriers and may vary with package origin and destination, particularly during peak periods.  All orders are shipped via Professional Couriers and Fedex.  This list is subject to periodic revision.

All shipping costs are determined by the weight and volume of the items purchased, the method of shipping chosen, and the destination address. 

IMPORTANT NOTES:  

(1) The shipping costs that you have paid for cover the courier costs to your location only.  Any additional charges such as octroi or other state specific Taxes (if applicable), would need to be settled by you at the time of delivery.

(2) In the case of several products, the volumetric weight exceeds the product weight, and therefore you may expect courier charges to be higher for lightweight but bulky items.

If you have any questions regarding shipping, please email us at:shop@thebetterindia.com An email notification will be sent with Delivery Confirmation Numbers and Tracking Numbers (if applicable).

Here’s a confession. We would love to do a lot more on packaging of products you buy on this platform. But it isn’t nearly enough, and we have miles to go. The use of synthetic polymers like plastic, thermocol, and other non-biodegradable materials in packaging, and no efficient way of handling disposal for recycling is a problem we are acutely aware of.

 

Challenges

While there’s a lot of ongoing innovation to create sustainable packaging solutions, there are many questions that remain. It is a challenge for the entire industry. And especially for us, because our sellers are tiny enterprises, who often don’t have the scale to invest on it. They are also spread across far corners of the country, areas where access to suppliers of better packaging alternatives is severely limited. For some product categories, like Food, there are legal guidelines to ensure use of food grade packaging, which may not always be environment friendly. And then there are challenges of logistics, to ensure there is no damage transit.

 

Our Commitment

The journey towards finding the right eco-friendly packaging solution for every product, that works for every seller, no matter where they are, and at the right cost, is a slow one. But we can promise you that we are working very hard on it. 

 

Let’s join hands

Meanwhile, we need you to help us find solutions too. If you know of people or organisations who are working in the space of sustainable packaging, or have other ideas on it, we’d love to hear from you.
