Unfortunately - your undies are the only thing that you can't buy in a second-hand store. With this in mind - it is our goal to provide you with the most sustainable and ethical option possible for your underwear needs.
We have researched the fabrics we believe have the lowest impact on the environment and wastage problem (Tencel™ MicroModal) and chosen to work with manufacturers that hold the highest standard of ethics with regards to workers rights and the environment (WRAP Gold Certificate of Compliance). We ship through Australia Post's carbon-neutral parcel delivery service and bank with Bank of Australia because of their Responsible Banking Policy.
On top of this, we are also helping you plant a tree with every purchase. You can find more information about this on our Plant page.
We are always working to improving our processes, manufacturing, and designs to ensure that our products are as sustainably and ethically produced as possible. So, if you have any questions or suggestions - please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our undies are made 95% from Tencel™ MicroModal®. This fabric is sourced from sustainable beech forestries in Lenzing, Austria or Paskov, Czech Republic.
Tencel™ fabrics are made using an efficient and closed-loop process that limits water and energy use and reduces wastage. You can read more about how Tencel™ manufactures their products here, and about their wood purchasing and processing here.
