A CLOTHING firm which eases cyclists’ consciences as well as their sore bums is hoping to win an award for being green.
Green Knickers makes organic, Fair Trade knickers and boxers with removable padding for bike riding.
The underwear, which features a bike wheel logo, and the slogan ‘Cycle More’ is made from naturally antiseptic bamboo and organic cotton.
Both knickers and boxers feature a velcroed-on pad, designed to make riding a more comfortable experience.
Company founder Rose Cleary-Southwood told BikeRadar.com: “The padding’s removable so you can take it off when you get to your destination. They are a perfect present for someone who’s trying to get into cycling.
“I wore them for the London to Brighton ride last year.”
Green Knickers operates under green principles, with many products made in London and raw materials coming from sustainable sources. The firm even transports its wares to local events by bike and shopping trolley to keep the carbon footprint of its organic cotton wares as low as possible.
