Let’s face it- Valentine’s Day isn’t really about the romance anymore- it’s about the chocolate, the Hallmark cards, and of course, the sexy lingerie. But sexy and sustainable aren’t mutually exclusive- in fact the most sexy skivvies are the ones that are so organic and natural they feel like a second skin. Here are a few tips to green your boudoir attire…

ENAMORE SOY AND SILK LINGERIE

Enamore the sexiest of sexy underthings, made from sustainable materials such as hemp, organic cotton, silk, and soy. We love their coquettish black and white Jezebelle collection.

AMERICAN APPAREL ORGANIC COTTON LINGERIE BASICS
For us Yanks, American Apparel is a great go-to for simple, wearable eco undergarments, all cut to perfection in the softest of organic cottons. American Apparel’s Sustainable Edition uses un-dyed, organic cotton that’s incredibly soft and makes for great cotton basics against your naughty bits.

$8 and up from American Apparel

GREEN KNICKERS EAT ORGANIC PANTIES
They’re green, they’re organic, and they’re super cute. Unfortunately though, they’re only available in the UK, so all you British blokes are in luck!

£15 from Green Knickers

    Love this! I’ve been hearing a lot about eco-friendly skivvies lately. I get this newsletter called BeThree and they talked about these undies and also natural lube for women, which I think is a great idea.http://bethree.com/2008/02/12/belovin-week-im-bringing-sexy-back/

    Now there’s some real beauty. Hey, that looks like Gwen Stefani, dude!

    Bamboo underwear is way better than organic cotton, moisture wicking, antibacterial (good for women prone to UTIs and yeast infections ;)

    Fred Thompson-

    If you actually took the time to read the article above you would see that NONE of the above products are made in third world countries and shipped overseas. American Apparel is made in the U.S., MYA is made in France, Enamore is made in the UK. The only possibly suspect brand above might be Victoria Secret, and that line isn’t even out yet. Nice use of the made-up word ‘finestest’ though!

    Hows that campaign going?

  7. Fred Thompson February 15, 2008 at 2:07 am

    Very sexy, nice concept. However, how is this considered “green deign” or “sustainable” when many of the brands listed above are made in third-world countries where there are no regulations and then the products are shipped (via) cargo ship across the pacific ocean, burning thousands upon thousands of fossil fuel in the process. Greenwashing at it finestest. Mass consumption will never be considered sustainable!

    Love the stuff, I need to forward onto my husband so he can give me some. I own a surf company and we make all of our knits from Organic Cotton. Check it out. Love AuH20Designs.com … just checked it out. Thanks.

    cute knickers! how’s it going, girls?

    A friend of mine, Kate, has a recycled clothing line, sold at her store in New York City, AuH2ODesigns.com. She literally recycles clothing to create a new, sustainable fashion.
