Most of BAM’s socks are vegan. However, some bamboo socks in its range are blended with mulesing-free merino wool. So if you are specifically looking for vegan-friendly socks, check the description before buying.

As well as selling supremely comfortable socks, what we love about BAM is that it is on a mission to reduce its carbon footprint to the absolute minimum by 2030. In the process, it’s also addressing every impact it has on the planet.

From ensuring every person in its supply chain – right the way back to the growers – is paid fairly to working towards zero waste to landfill and zero wasted water, BAM’s approach is to be commended.
