Searching for ethically produced and sustainable undergarments can be harrowing. I’ve done a bit of the legwork for you (ladies). You’re welcome.

I don’t recommend going out and spending hundreds of dollars on a brand new underdrobe, as tempting as that may seem. Replacing pieces as they wear out is less wasteful and much more economical. I’ve personally got a couple things on my shopping list, this week; it’s going to be a slow but steady turnover process. Updating my wardrobe is part of my Thirty Before 30 list.

This list is ongoing, and definitely incomplete.  Feel free to add your links or reviews in the comments of this post.
