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.
