Thought bananas were only good for a delicious source of potassium? Think again!
AussieBum’s new line of underwear could induce a number of bad banana-related jokes, but we’ll stick to the basics: the men’s fashion company from the “Land Down Under-wear” (okay, I couldn’t resist), recently released a line of underwear made with real banana fiber. The eco-friendly undies are 27% sustainable banana fiber, 64% organic cotton, and 9% lycra.
Why only 27% banana? According to Lloyd Jones, the company spokesperson, “Naturally, you can’t really add anymore banana fiber than that because it might be a bit squishy.” Well, in that case 27% sounds like just the right amount.
Congratulations to AussiBum on their new socially conscious initiative!
