As you all know, I have been on an online cleanse. Real-life was just a little bit too real and participating in the online world for the most part caused a negative physical reaction. I know – the power of mind and such.
But one very cold day I decided to check the podcast email and to my pleasant surprise, I saw an email from WAMA offering me to try out their Hemp underwear.
The CoVid 20
How did they know that I, like many others, had gained quite a bit of weight during the Covid-sit-at-home time and had been exploring the world of sustainable underwear?
Of course, I said yes. In no time at all, I received a package of hemp goodies. In the video, you see me unpacking and showing off my new undies that seem quite big. But big is good. Much better than lying to myself and ending up with clothing that might fit the body of my dreams but not the one I have.
Yay to Recycling
The first thing I noticed is that the packaging is made from recycled materials and can be recycled in turn. At this point, of course, we aren’t sure how much of the items we place dutifully into our recycle bin ends up in the landfill anyway but we can hope.
The envelope is also sturdy enough that it can be used for the storage of items in your house to give it a longer useful life. If you are a compulsive seed saver like I am, I am sure you can relate.
The Hemp Underwear
On to the undies. The fabric content is 53% hemp, 44% organic cotton, 3% spandex.
They are designed in the US and manufactured in China. If you go to this article on the WAMA website, you can read all about why they choose China as the country to source materials and manufacture the finished product.
Enjoy the video in which compost, among other topics, comes up. And watch the area around the abandoned yellow bucket in the background for Miss BB to make an appearance.
Stay tuned for my report on washing and wearing my new hemp underwear.
