As we learn about all the ways we can reach our zero-waste goals, there is one trend we didn’t see coming: ethical lingerie. Environmentally sound fashion labels are nothing new and everyone from the Duchess of Sussex to Gwyneth Paltrow is cosigning sustainable clothing. But any movement starts with the basics, which brings us to eco-friendly intimates.

There are several labels committed to reducing the industry’s carbon footprint by switching to bamboo, organic cotton and low-impact dyes, making way for practical and sustainable production methods. These brands also treat their employees well, providing safe, sanitary and nontoxic working environments. So why not extend this eco-conscious approach to our underwear?
