Gallery: A Green Guide to Sustainable Skivvies!


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 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.

£32.00 and up from Enamore

Can you believe these sexy undergarments are made from recycled white pine-tree pruning? As soft as silk with the feel of cashmere, these sustainable skivvies, which are made in a small village in France, will take you ‘back to nature’ in no time.

£39.00 and up from By Nature

(why does the UK have the market cornered on eco-undies?)

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

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

Sexy but simple, these organic cotton from organic cotton company Perfectly Imperfect sets are supple as can be, but don’t lose much in the sex appeal department.

$25 and up from Kaight

For a perfect balance of sexy and comfortable, you can’t go wrong with BuenoStyle organic cotton panties. Made from 96% organic cotton and 4% lycra, the boy-cut style undies come in vibrant colors thanks to low-impact dyes.

$16 from The Green Loop

Last but not least, there’s always Victoria Secret. You may know it, but the underwear uberchain is jumping the green bandwagon as well. Under the umbrella of their Victoria’s Dirty Little Secret campaign, the lingerie powerhouse is launching an organic cotton line VERY soon- if your lady is patient, preorder her some organic cotton skivvies.

    Alot of those eco lingerie pieces are really expensive (except for AA). I have two affordable choices, on Make you own eco lingerie for less then a few bucks $$, here is a link to the DIY project :

    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.

    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 … just checked it out. Thanks.

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