We should all own a pair of sustainable pyjamas for every occasion! Wether it be a cosy flannel for a winter night to a light airy pyjama for your island lifestyle. Here on Maui you can definitely use a pyjama for every occasion. There are 24 micro climates on the island. It can even get to be freezing cold if you drive up to the Haleakala crater. I did many hours of research on this subject and found my very favourite brands. Firstly to share them with you but also for ourselves because we spend a third of our life sleeping, should we not be in the most comfortable, organic pyjamas one can get their hands on? We sure think so. Hope you like our selection!

Sudara

flannel sustainable pyjamas

I discovered this brand as I was hunting for an awesome pyjama for Iñaki. He is really one of those traditional Pj wearers. He wears his pj’s on a daily basis and his criteria is pretty high. When discovering Sudara I knew I came to the right place. As soon as his arrived I was so impressed.

I also loved knowing I supporting women in India with my purchase. You can really see and feel these pieces are made with love and a very specific attention to detail. Simply knowing, that by making this purchase I was supporting such an amazing cause, I could not resist from contacting Sudara and asking them how we could help shed the light on their project!

I absolutely love my flannel pyjamas and Iñaki is extremely happy with his cotton ones too.

Every purchase supports living-wage employment and skills training for women in India who are at a high risk or survivors of sex trafficking. -Sudara

Chandra Textiles

You will come to learn our love for India and supporting it’s beautiful gentle people. This Etsy Store straight out of India has so many wonderful things. Among them these vibrant organic cotton handmade Pyjama sets. They also have amazing Quilts, Rugs and scarves. I love being able to support a brand such as this one. Ordering from Chandra textiles you are supporting a small business in India that pays Rural Women to hand make their products. Our package arrived super quickly and the customer service is absolutely on point.

I really love the colours one can choose from at this store. Bright, vibrant and ultimately happy pieces.

If you are spending a day at the beach or simply lounging at home this stunning Kimono brings joy of vibrant colours into your life. You cannot go wrong with a few pieces from this store.

Feel free to support, gift and share these super cute sustainable pyjamas with your loved ones and know that you are truly supporting a good cause by doing so!

Mightly

Such a great find for toddler pyjamas, all the way up to age 12. It is not that easy to find a brand that uses organic cotton for our little ones sleepwear. Mightly has far more than just sustainable pyjamas. Hoodies, dresses, comfy durable clothes, for kids that love to get dirty and play. This company is ran by two fantastic moms and one of their daughters Eloise. They are all about transparency, sustainability, durability and just the cutest style. We plan on being customers for many years to come!

Mightly has a completely transparent supply chain. We know our factories, their suppliers and
where our cotton is grown.- Mightly

It was by no means intentional for India to be such a presence in this post but this brand is designed and california and made in India yet again supporting a fair trade factory in India that has been certified since 2010. We look forward to sharing many more pictures with you in the future.

Kyte Baby

We have been an extreme fan of this brand ever since our little one was born! We named them the ¨Softes Pyjamas Ever¨ clic on the link to read the whole post. Another family run business that uses the sustainable fabric bamboo. Since we discovered the brand they now also make super cozy pyjamas for adults and the most incredible blankets. I highly reccomend you check them out.

Bamboo is the best choice for your baby, and for the planet’s future.- Kyte baby

We are very proud of this list and can promise that it does not get more sustainable than these brands. So get yourself and your family a comfy outfit for these ¨stay at home¨ days and feel like you are making a difference, because you are!!!!

It always feel great to set yourself up with goals to do yoga or any type of exercise, especially when a new year is starting. Why not make this upcoming year about committing to that time for yourself. Be it yoga, stretching or any type of workout. To help you on your way you can find Iñaki´s free classes on his youtube channel and soon they will also be available on our blog too.

We will always suggest that using what you already have is the most sustainable option, but if you are in need to get some things to help you get motivated on the road to exercising this coming year. These are some amazing sustainable yoga brands that we ourselves use, love and cherish.

Inner Waves Organics

eco-friendly sustainable yoga brands

The importance of wearing organic cotton on my skin when I exercise and sweat is something that I truly value. We are so excited to introduce you to this brand. We partnered up with them to do a photoshoot for their new line and can call ourselves proud ambassadors. Between the two of us we pretty much wear them almost every day. The clothes are really well made, comfortable and fashionable. I also want to mention how well made they are that after washing them over and over again they do not loose their quality. My absolute go to for work out clothes.

Ajna Wellbeing

I myself have always felt guilty when buying a yoga mat because in the end I know how much I use it and how it wears down and then I have to buy another. Which of course is normal if you are practicing on it and working up a sweat. When I found Ajna Wellbeing I was so excited because it is a beautifully made mat but also 100% biodegradable. That really means the world to me. So when we are done and they are worn we will bury them under the ground with our compost and give back to nature what it has let us use! In Hawaiian the term is ¨Malama ‘Aina¨ – By simply taking care and respecting the land, it will sustain life.

Not only do they have these beautiful mats but we also love their bolster and meditation cushions! Each bolster is hand stitched from recycled materials and really inspires one to do your practice at home. We really believe that it is so important to start a meditation practice now more than ever and it does really make a difference if you can be in a comfortable sitting position for longer periods of time.

The Mats are also reversible for two different types of grip and come in several colours. We are so happy with our mats and even more happy that most of Iñakis students that see and feel the mat are buying it too. And we only have been getting good feedback!

Ripple Yogawear

This jumpsuit is so stylish, as well as super comfortable, and perfect for doing inverted poses. Although there are just a few pieces in the organic section of Ripple Yogawear, we are sure that supporting their initiative will inspire more amazing organic options to come in the future. We have already seen their collection grow since we discovered the brand!!! So let’s keep supporting their growth!

Use Syecocouple for a 12% discount

The slouchy capri pants that he is wearing is super soft and another great basic to have in your closet. We basically share them, well I ¨borrow¨ them from Iñaki when we are hanging out at home.

Supporting brands that have organic options is a great way to inspire others to follow suit.

So if we can inspire you to get on your mat this year and build your immune system and support some amazing brands, it is a good start to the year for us.

Happy New Year and Stay healthy.

Top 5 Sustainable Eco-friendly Ethical Underwear Brands

Eco Couple uses affiliate links. We promote products we have tried ourselves and truly believe in. If you make a purchase using a link we may receive a commission. Such revenue helps keep this website running. Allows us to keep the content free for readers.This motivates us to stay on our mission of inspiring conscious consumerism.

Here is why sustainable eco-friendly ethical underwear brands may be more important than you thought. Something to think about, that we may not be taking into consideration. Underwear is so close to our bodies for such long periods, every single day. I have come to learn of the importance of natural breathable fabrics, touching our most intimate parts.

You cannot even imagine how many toxins are in regular underwear, half of them I cannot even pronounce, and then we wonder why we get yeast infections and the likes. It is so important for us to wear breathable, natural fabrics free of toxins. Not only is it better for our bodies but of course it is way better for our environment. So here is our top choices for eco-friendly, sustainable, fair-trade underwear. I have tried, tested them all and will be a loyal customer to these brands for many years to come!

WAMA

I have to be honest this is my first time purchasing Hemp underwear, I am super impressed. Absolutely love this brand. Hemp is far more breathable than other fabrics, which is kind of nice when it comes to your underwear. I also like the feel of the fabric, it seems quite durable but also soft.

I have only tried the bikini cut, thus far, but I already know I am going to invest in a multi pack. Also Iñaki has already asked for another pair so I guess he really likes them too! So if you want to support the ever growing hemp industry in a really cool way, join us on the Hemp Underwear wagon, we approve and then some.

PACT

I have been buying things from Pact for a while now. Actually I am not sure you can get these prints anymore as they are a little older but still holding up wonderfully! Wanted to share the reality of the test of time! Pact’s slogan is really endearing ¨Our mission is to build Earth’s Favorite Clothing Company.¨

Not only do they have really comfy organic underwear they are also produced at a fair-trade facility. They also have really cozy lounge wear. If you are a mama, well they have cute things for kids too. What is most rewarding about this brand is that they are super affordable, high quality and often have really great sale opportunities. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Organic Basics

Black organic eco friendly sustainable underwear

Organic Basics is focused on sustainability from start to finish even their web site is low impact. I really like this bra. It feels supportive yet comfortable and it is made from another great fabric called Tencel. An eco-friendly, sustainable fabric made from wood pulp. It is a biodegradable fibre that is softer and lighter than cotton and more breathable it almost feels like silk. It fairs well after washing it and has a really snug fit.

They also have wonderful organic cotton options as well as recycled merino wool accessories. I personally like to use my Tencel undies for when I exercise. As the fabric is really great at absorbing moisture. I highly recommend you try it if you like to exercise.

Knickey

For your every day super comfy underwear Knickey is the place. Certified organic, breathable, simple and you can even try all the different styles in their awesome starter set. This brand is more than affordable for anyone and they have every style you could want or need. I personally tried the high rise, ever since having a baby I like to cover my stomach. It makes me feel snug…. but I do want to try the mid rise and some of their fun colours.

I definitely recommend this very simple perfect addition to your underwear drawer. Another top benefit, is that you can recycle your old undies with them. Send in any brand and they will recycle them into rugs and insulation. Also you get a free pair of underwear in your next order as a thank you for recycling!!! I am just thrilled to support brands with such initiatives.

Hara

lying on trunk in organic underwear

When it comes to underwear I absolutely cannot leave out one of my most beloved fabrics: Bamboo! Hara delivers just that, beautiful designs with absolute ultra comfort. This fabric is beyond soft, to tell you the truth it is another must have. I love wearing this fabric when I am lounging at home or cuddling with my hubby watching a movie. I love the way it feels against my skin and I got the cutest powder blue bralette, undies and t-shirt.

Here in Hawaii I can literally hang out in these all day, all year long. The bra I got is definitely for smaller bust sizes but they also have sturdier options for bigger busts. Yet again I chose the high rise (it’s my thing right now) makes me feel like a 50’s starlet.

I am not a big fan of a full pyjama… so this is definitely my go to sleep wear…. just feels so nice in my bamboo sheets. Also I can throw the t-shirt on over a pair of leggings and go about my day. I really love the weight of bamboo, it is slightly heavier than cotton and just always hangs nicely on the body. Trust me and try it you will definitely not be disappointed. Yet again a brand that inspires to heal the world and educate about the pesticides used in the cotton industry! ¨We strive from seed to store to empower lives and rejuvenate the earth.¨- Hara

I hope you are inspired to purchase your next pair of underwear from one of these sustainable eco-friendly ethical underwear brands we have provided you with! We look forward to hearing about your experiences. Feel free to share this article with your friends. So we can reach a larger audience and in that way impact our earth in a positive way. Thank you!

JBL Eco Friendly Speaker

The gift of music is always welcome. How Great that even JBL jumped onboard with an eco conscious speaker made from recycled plastics…. supporting these types of actions from these brands is what will invite them in the direction of making more eco-friendly options. The sound is, as always with JBL, phenomenal! Always a fun gift to give or receive and even maybe something you would like to buy for yourself. I know I did.

House of Marley Headphones

I have had mine for years and love them so much that I bought them again after they were stolen from my car. They sound incredible and are made sustainably, from recyclable aluminium to reclaimed organic cotton and hemp. House of Marley are truly on track with making things the right way. I highly recommend them. If you like a nice pair of over the ear headphones, look no further.

Ajna Yoga Mat

The gift of health and inspiration with a yoga mat is also always welcome. We absolutely love our mats, they are double sided and have really good grip, and yes they are fully biodegradable. So as every yogi should have, get an eco-friendly mat for someone you love that loves to do yoga.

Scuba Mask

Scubapro diving scuba mask

This can be a very original gift… not only does everyone at one point or another go snorkeling. How about you give this gift with a promise to go to a tropical destination to use the mask sometime in the future. I know I would love this idea especially in these trying times. The brand scuba pro stands behind ocean conservation and sustainability so you can feel great about this purchase too.

SafeSleeve EMF protecting phone cover

Wether for your phone, your ipad or laptop give the gift of health to a loved one. From blue light screen protectors to EMF protection from your cell phone. This is another great unexpected gift idea. If you are like me I really like having my phone cover double up as a wallet.

Indigo Wild

We are so thrilled to introduce you to this brand…. Hawaii’s first biodegradable swimsuit brand. Yes, you heard right! A swimsuit that biodegrades in the landfill to 0 when you discard it. That is truly zero waste. Thank you for introducing the world to this amazing fabric with such style and elegance! Actually there are less than a handful of brands using this incredible fabric in the USA today. We are so thrilled to be some of the first to experiment with this fabric. It is beyond soft and fairs really well in the water. I surfed in both of the suits and it felt great! We met Shelby (founder) through social media pretty recently and are so impressed with this hard working Mama’s repetoire. Hand dyed unique pieces, made right here on Maui… we look forward to watching this brand sky rocket into the world and hope to be collaborating with her for years to come. I have little more to say other than these pictures speak for themselves. Absolutley LOVE Indigo Wild and I am sure YOU will too!

This local brand has reef safe sun screen, that spreads really evenly on the skin and does not leave any white residue. I also absolutely love their lip balm, and biodegradable deodorant.

With Ti and Coco you can be elegant or casual and enjoy these pieces for special occasions or as I am finding on a daily basis. From organic cotton, to linen to tencel there is something for every occasion. We are thrilled with this find, and I am thinking I may have to add their little black dress to my island wardrobe.

I can only say it is exactly as the name describes it, blue bottle love. The bottle is absolutely gorgeous and imprints love onto every sip you drink from it. After extensive research my favourite water is taken from a natural spring, filtered through our Berkey system and then last but not least placed into our beautiful cobalt bottles! This makes the most delicious water you could ever drink.

Eco-Friendly Bedding

If you stop and think about the fact that you spend almost a whole third of your life in Bed ….Do you not deserve to be lying in what is the best bed and bedding ever?

We believe it is essential to sleep with comfortable and healthy, organic bedding and our always on the lookout for brands that are aligned with nature! Lana Care has introduced us to a fibre we knew nothing about. Kapok (Ceiba) fabric, it is super cozy and it’s function is very innovative. Kapok fiber is harvested from the fluffy fiber surrounding the seeds of the tropical kapok tree. One of the things I personally like is that the Ceiba plant is like horses hair, hollow on the inside, which makes it breathable. It wicks moisture away throughout the night. Which is incredibly important as we all sweat at night. It is also referred to as the lightest fibre in the world. It is extra fluffy and comfy.

We are thrilled with Kapok (Ceiba) through and want to thank our friends over at Lana Care for sending us the lovely duvet…. It feels like silk!

“Sleep is the best meditation” – Dalai Lama

We encourage you, if you cannot currently buy a new organic mattress atleast invest in an organic topper and enjoy some extra special cozy bedding for an extra special nights rest, every night! Good night!
