This post shares 35 ethical loungewear brands. All the ethical and sustainable loungewear items you could every want including jumpsuits, sweatpants, rompers, dresses, joggers, sweat shirts and more. Who says being comfy can't be stylish and good for the planet too?
In the past few years loungewear has become more and more popular. With everyone spending more time at home, comfortable clothing has become the new normal. Luckily, there are so many great ethical and sustainable loungewear brands out there now so you can not only feel great wearing the clothes, you can feel great knowing they were made by employees who are treated well, while respecting the environment and using eco-friendly materials and practices in the process.
The fashion and textile industry is considered one of the top polluters in the world and one of the heaviest consumers of natural resources in the world. The industry produces 20% of wastewater and creates more greenhouse gas emissions than all international flights and maritime shipping combined (reference). That's why it's so important to choose clothing brands who focus on sustainability as well as ethical practices.
In this post, I am sharing a round up of 35 ethical loungewear brands that offer all sorts of styles including tees, hoodies, sweatshirts, bed socks, rompers, pants, and everything else you need to stay super comfy and cozy. And if ethical and sustainable clothing interests you, you will love my other post on Ethical and Sustainable Underwear Brands.
