Our world is becoming more conscious about how their personal consumerism can have a negative impact on our environment, as it’s continually become more and more fragile. We can all afford to make small changes that work for our lifestyle, that will also make our earth happy. Sometimes, that is easier said than done. For those of you who wish to make your own personal impact through what you wear, know that Now That’s Lingerie hears you and has some lingerie made predominately with more natural fabrics that will feel good, look good, and will not clog up the earth when disposed of. We’d like to note that these are also options suitable for women with allergies or who are irritated easily by treated fabrics!
Want to know some green ways to deal with your unwanted or unused lingerie? Check out our Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Lingerie Edition post from earlier this month.
100 Per Cent Cotton Panty by Naturana Lingerie
This is a panty for every day. Made of 100% cotton, you will experience breathability and moisture absorption all day, despite the amount of activity you do. However, there are stretch elements in the waist and at the legs to ensure comfort, and to offer a seamless-like finish if worn in the right size. With a versatile range of sizes available in great basic colours, everyone can enjoy the multiple benefits of this easy, breezy panty.
Essentials With Satin Chemise by Calvin Klein
Don’t let the name fool you; this simply flirtatious chemise is made primarily with modal, an innovative new fabric that is created through sustainable and renewable sources. There is only a small amount of satin trim and elastane for stretch, which can be easily removed when it comes to disposal (after you wear it forever because it’s so comfortable)! It’s a perfect ensemble for lounging around the house on the weekend.
Modalux Wire-Free Bra and Modalux Bikini Brief by Elita Lingerie
Once again, this small collection from Elita utilizes a fantastically soft form of modal, derived from European beechwood trees. You will just want to live in this bra and brief because the softness is just unbelievable. The wire-free bra is ultra comfortable, with a nice plunge neckline to showcase slight cleavage. There is a small amount of spandex in the bra for stretch. The bikini brief, which also comes in a high cut brief completes this everyday cozy set. The simplicity of each brief is humbly alluring, and you’ll feel a little bit sexy with their classic design.
Kaitlin Spaghetti Strap Chemise with Removeable Pads by Arianne Lingerie
A feminine and bright option made of rayon, which can be sustainably sourced and super soft and breatahable, with a tiny bit of elastane for stretch. The pretty floral pattern reminds us of the beauty of nature, and the empire waist style is a figure flattering option for all. You can remove the pads within the chest area if you want to, and adjust the straps as necessary.
A tip when you decide to throw out your underwear; some panties made of natural fibres are compostable, such as cotton, when you take out any of the synthetic stuff – for example, the waist band with the stretchy material or elastic.
Whether it’s made by a natural fibre from a renewable source, it reduces water and energy waste with special washing techniques, or it’s compostable when it’s time to get rid of it, this lingerie will help you look cute while also having a little less of an impact on the environment. As long as you never waste your lingerie or dispose of it incorrectly, regardless of what kind of lingerie you buy, there are still ways to reduce your footprint even with those treated materials and lacy numbers!
