According to Business Insider, a group of young Danish innovators have created a type of underwear that can be worn without washing for weeks thanks to silver. The goal is to save the environment, not encourage poor hygene.
Washing and drying account for two-thirds of the total impact on the environment, and that is why Organic Basics got started on their underwear. The special ingredient is silver. This particular metal is antimicrobial which is why NASA uses silver to purify water for astronauts.
The underwear comes with a silver formula coating that kills 99.9% of all bacteria and odour in the garment, according to Organic Basics.
