Washing clothes is the most hated household chore, we get really annoyed sometimes while doing laundry work.
A Copenhagen-based brand called Organic Basics making our life much easier with their unique solution to that, a NASA-inspired, high-tech, eco-friendly pair of underwear that you apparently “won’t need to wash for weeks.”
We share all the information and details about this invention with you all.
This underwear comes in many different designs, including boxers and thongs. Their designer clothes include socks, tank tops, and even towels are made of mechanically recycled nylon from post-industrial waste fiber, yarn from spinning factories, and waste from weaving mills, that uses 80% less water to make and creates 90% fewer CO2 emissions.
They add silver into it so they stay fresh much longer, which kills 99.9% of all bacteria and odor in the garment. They got the idea to add silver because NASA uses silver to purify water for astronauts.
Organic Basics started their shop in 2015, they wanted to create basics that were environmentally responsible and sustainable.
The company decided to use crowdfunding in 2017 to make this idea come to fruition and they raised more than $155,000, and they became the most crowdfunded fashion campaign in Scandinavia. Now Organic Basics came up with a new idea, Silvertech 2.0. tech-advanced odor-killing underwear that is made from 100% recycled nylon.
So, Silvertech 2.0 is created by using sustainable materials, and it also cuts down on consumer impact by reducing the need to wash clothes as often. “You save time and money while we reduce the waste of water and energy,” explains Mads Fibiger to Business Insider magazine.
Mads Fibiger, co-founder of Organic Basics explains, “Poor industry standards make the fashion industry the second most polluting industry in the world, but the fact is, two-thirds of the environmental impact of clothing is actually created by the consumer.”
