Gallery: GREEN VALENTINES DAY: Sustainable Skivvies


February 14th is right around the corner, and while many deem Valentine’s Day “just another Hallmark holiday,” few ladies can resist the romantic appeal of cute underwear. This year, treat your girl to something that is not only super-sexy, but green as well. There are a ton of eco apparel companies, but few green lingerie outfits whose bras and panties don’t look like your grandma’s knickers or burlap sacks. For a perfect balance of sexy and comfortable, you can’t go wrong with BuenoStyle organic cotton panties (shown above). Made from 96% organic cotton and 4% lycra, the boy-cut style undies come in vibrant colors thanks to low-impact dyes.

Enamore offers a racy, special occasion lingerie, made from sustainable materials such as hemp, organic cotton, silk, and soya. We love their black and white Peek-A-Boo collection, as well as their silky soft bed jackets and kimonos.

American Apparel also has an array of sustainable, organic cotton items, from basic tees to undergarments. A huge proponent of fair labor practices and high-quality materials, American Apparel’s Sustainable Edition uses un-dyed, organic cotton that’s incredibly soft and makes for great cotton basics.

We’ve also written about Eco-Boudoir before, a company that makes a full line of sexy and sustainable bedroom accessories.

    Oh, the Buenstyle skivvies are sooo comfortable. I bought a few pairs at Not Just Pretty here in Victoria, and they are my absolute favourite… and they get more soft and cosy with each washing.

    What’s more for a girl to ask? Organic… that’s the way it should be (especially down yonder)!!
