Day 217 – Happy National Underwear Day! There’s no better way to celebrate underwear than to look into sustainable options. I figured this post would be pretty easy to write. I know there are plenty of companies making sustainable underwear. Unfortunately, I do not spend a great deal of money on my underwear, so it was very hard to write a post the would include underwear less than $12 a pair. I usually spend that much on 6 pairs. I could not find underwear for less that would constitute as good for the environment.
So, this is what I’m going to do, I’m going to include a link to 13 Sustainable and Ethical Underwear Brands created by the Good Trade. If you are someone that doesn’t mind spending a little extra on your underwear, then consider one of these environmentally friendly brands.
Now, if you’re like me and end up usually purchasing Fruit of the Loom or Hanes, I wanted to share what these companies are doing to better the planet. Both companies go into detail on how they are producing their products in environmentally and ethical ways.
Lastly, I wanted to mention a Chicago based company that will take your worn out undies and recycle them. When you purchase Basic Revolution socks, a shipping label for recycling is included in the shipment. You can send any clean, unwearable/undonatable clothing, which will be recycled (hole-y socks, tattered undies, stained clothing, etc.).
So, on this day, set aside for articles of clothing that many of us could not imagine not wearing, but nearly no one sees, let’s consider some options that would be helpful to the planet.
Tomorrow, a great resource for sustainable living for the average person, just wanting to do something to help.
