If you're a dab hand at sustainable fashion, then you've probably already swapped the big items in your wardrobe (like jeans, shoes and activewear) for planet-friendly pieces from eco-conscious labels. Yet when it comes to sustainability, brands often overlook the overflowing contents of our underwear drawer.
As the first thing we put on every morning, underwear is one of the most integral parts of our wardrobe yet its use of environmentally damaging materials often goes unchecked. Whether you like lacy lingerie or comfy briefs and a tank top, undergarments of all kinds can contribute to climate change through the use of toxic dyes, plastic-based materials and excess water.
Thankfully, over the last few years a growing number of lingerie brands have taken action to produce low carbon products through the use of natural or recycled fabrics. Whether it's organic cotton bralettes or knickers created using TENCEL™ fibres, it's now easier than ever to get your hands on underwear that's kind to the planet.
From Organic Basics to Lara Intimates, we've rounded up the best eco-friendly underwear on the market right now. Click through to discover a hand-picked selection of lingerie that is as sexy as it is sustainable.
