These bamboo socks to help the homeless are sold in pairs or as gift packs. Bamboo is a fast-growing biodegradable and naturally anti-bacterial grass (industrial bamboo should not be taken from panda habitats). These socks also contain a little non-biodegradable elastane, so wash in a microfiber catch bag (catches microplastic fibres).
About the Maker
Leiho is on a business mission to make buying more meaningful. It makes bamboo socks that for each pair bought, also donate a pair to a homeless shelter (clean socks are the most requested item). Homeless people often walk several miles a day to find food and shelter, so clean socks are always good. The company also makes reusable water bottles (profits give fresh water in cardboard cartons to homeless people, to prevent dehydration/heatstroke). You can also buy bamboo/cotton socks to help the homeless from Stand 4 Socks.
