Here are three honest, sustainable, and modern lingerie brands that are committed to making this world a better place. Not only are they supporting safe and fair working conditions, they are making lingerie with integrity. Cosabella, Hanky Panky, and Stella Mccartney are the leaders in the lingerie industry for educating and promoting the importance of eco fashion.
We should be educated just as much as the food we put in our mouth to the clothes we put on our body! The more I learn about the harmful materials china and so many other countries are using, the more I understand how important it is to invest in organic materials, sourced ethically, free from exploitation and discrimination and not made with harmful dies. Our skin is our biggest organ, and if you don’t think those cheap vegan leathers, plastics, toxic fibers and fabrics aren’t affecting your overall health, well then, you need to think again. Let’s be aware, and conscience, and go out and educate ourselves and our friends on the harmful implications of wearing cheap clothing because what you don’t know can hurt you.
Many clothes from china have formaldehyde, which keeps clothes from wrinkling and is extremely harmful. Another commonly used clothing or textile factory chemical is nonylphenol ethoxylate (NPE). Known as endocrine disruptors, like BPA. These toxins are dumped in waterways, killing a lot of fish and wild life. There are negatively impacting wildlife, but there are no restrictions where the clothing and textile factories are located in China and Southeast Asia.
You can start with avoiding synthetic materials such as Rayon, Nylon, Polyester, Acrylic, Acetate or Triacetate as much as possible. Also avoid no-iron, wrinkle free and preshrunk items. To make make a long story short, try to stay in the 100% pure cotton zone, and hemp is always a great option too.
