Unbleached cotton, boring, no style granny panties maybe? Well, you would have been right a while back but not anymore. Now, we are talking thongs, colors and even sexy lingerie.
Fabrics like organic cotton, bamboo and hemp are so soft and comfortable they are perfect for underwear and what better way to add organic fabrics to your wardrobe than by starting with organic underwear. Your purchases can and do make a difference even the small ones. Every time you purchase organically you keep more harmful chemicals out of our environment and help to support organic growers.
Shopping For Organic Undies
Keep in mind as you are shopping for organic underwear or really any organic clothing for that matter that it is important to look for those that not only contain organically grown fibers but also are dyed and processed in ways that are the most gentle to the environment. The chemical processes used on cotton to bleach, dye or finish are often very harmful.
Very soft 100% organic cotton underwear for the whole family. I found a nice selection of Ecoland items including bras, panties, camis, baby and kids and men’s tees at Amazon. Available in natural or pure white. Good for everyday wear. They are made in a sweatshop free environment and they use recycled packaging. Reviews on this brand are mostly positive but some women found the sizing ran small.
Their lingerie is available in three styles made from organic fabrics and one of bamboo. It is designed simply and for comfort without the use of wires or heavy elastic and is best for everyday or light athletic wear. They take advantage of the natural, strength and elasticity that is found in cotton that has been grown organically to provide shape, comfort and cooling to their organic underwear. This small company manufacturers their clothing here in the U.S.
Organically grown cotton most of which is grown and manufactured right here in the United States. Nice, soft and comfortable styling that is great for everyday wear. A great site for those sensitive to chemicals many items also are latex free. Green and sweatshop free.
- Couture Cottons
Cute and sexy organic cotton/bamboo panties with little extras like lace and a fun little peekaboo hole near the waistband on the back. Light pink is shown here but other colors include black, red and brown in styles of french cut, bikini, boy cut and thong.
- Faeries Dance
Big selection of panties, bras and pretty nightwear in a range of prices. You’ll find thongs to boy shorts and sports bras to lacy camis. Available in organic cotton and some bamboo blends and if you know anything about bamboo you know how soft it is.
Tees, tanks, socks, bikini and thongs all made from organic cotton. Their designs are cute and colorful but what impresses me the most is the care that is taken at every phase of their business to be eco friendly and socially responsible. They are working on creating a business where nothing ends up in a landfill but is reused or recycled. To help achieve this they offer a special mailer to return no longer needed underwear which they will recycle and in return you will receive a discount code.
As always a big selection of organic underwear all in one place from a variety of different brands like Ecoland, Only Hearts (shown left), Hanky Panky, American Apparel, Pact, Gaiam and Patagonia. Many styles offer free super saver shipping and free returns.
Why not make organic underwear a part of your wardrobe.
