Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has recently joined into a distribution partnership with EcoSox®/BBS Hosiery, Incorporated, to offer bamboo socks to a larger consumer market. A family owned and operated company, BBS Hosiery was founded in 1988 by Bill Birkett and has specialized in manufacturing sport-specific socks for over 20 years. They are headquartered in Ohio, and began their EcoSox® Bamboo Program in November of 2008. EcoSox® are an ecologically friendly alternative to other athletic and high performance socks on the market, and are offered in many varieties including styles for diabetes, sports and athletes, hiking, work, compression, and for people who are on their feet all day such as nurses, healthcare professionals and hospitality industry workers. Constructed from self-regenerating bamboo, these socks are amazingly comfortable and soft, while they demonstrate their remarkable absorbent qualities in keeping feet cool, dry and odor-free.
“Words can't express my excitement about the EcoSox® program,” said Bill Birkett, Founder and CEO of BBS Hosiery. “In my 25 plus years in the hosiery business, this is the best performance sock I have ever worked with. We take pride that our bamboo socks are better for the environment and we provide our customers a sock that is more durable and offers better performance than your average sports sock.” Since their creation, EcoSox® have become very popular with people all over the world, and everyone who uses them gives nothing less than rave reviews about them being “the best socks ever invented!” These socks are woven from bamboo viscose fibers, with over 90% of EcoSox® styles made in the USA. Benefits include non-binding tops which allow blood flow to the feet; odor control; moisture control through their wicking away process; blister prevention; arch support which helps fight fatigue and keeps the sock from sliding on the foot; thermo-regulation which helps feet stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter; and cushioning in key areas that helps provide maximum comfort and extended wear-ability. Bamboo is four times as absorbent as cotton, and it dries twice as fast. Bamboo fabric also has inherent antifungal and antibacterial properties which it retains, even after several launderings.
“We are proud to introduce these earth-friendly and high-performance socks from BBS Hosiery to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “We love EcoSox® and we know our customers will love them, too! Everyone who tries them is astonished at how well they perform over other specialty socks they have used in the past, and they not only look and feel good, but they're also great for the environment. EcoSox® are a win-win for all!”
