What We're Doing

Recycle your undies.

Did you know that you can’t recycle underwear? It’s not accepted by donation centers and sadly languishes in landfill. So, we decided to take action and in 2018, we launched Lingeriecycle®, a Hanky Panky scheme to recycle bras and panties. The garments are shredded to create fibers for carpet padding and metal components are separated for recycling.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, Hanky Panky’s innovative Lingeriecycle™ program is temporarily suspended. We are currently researching alternatives and will resume this program once a suitable recycling partner is found. 

 

Waste reduction.

We partner with textile recyclers to recycle a portion of our fabric waste. Scrap fabric can be recycled into various products such as insulation, packaging, and even new fabrics. Additionally, our designs are created to efficiently maximize fabric usage and minimize waste.


Our material certifications.


We use responsibly-grown Supima® cotton fibers in our lingerie and sleepwear. These Southwest USA-grown cotton fibers are produced under the CottonLEADS sustainability initiative and have a smaller environmental impact than many imported cottons. All our cotton knit fabrics are knitted, dyed and finished on the east coast, using low-impact, non-toxic fiber reactive dyes. Our Signature Lace is knitted, dyed, and finished in the USA with low impact dyes.  Our heather jersey, Tencel and viscose rayon fabrics are created with responsibly-managed renewable wood sources (FSC® and PEFC®). We offer fabrics that are made with Oeko-Tex® 100 Certified yarns that are free of harmful substances. We are committed to never using flocked fabrics, which are prone to shedding fibers. Nor do we use fur, feathers, wool, or leather in any of our designs.

Our packaging goals.

From our famous rolled thongs, conceived to reduce wasteful packaging materials, to joining prAna’s Responsible Packaging Movement, we make decisions through an environmental lens. We have committed to a series of goals between now and 2030 to reduce our packaging footprint, including: 

  • Using Emerald™tree-free paper (made from agricultural waste) for boxes 
  • Adopting fully sustainable pulp sources for hangtags 
  • Transitioning to biodegradable hang tag attachments 
  • Phasing out single use virgin plastic polybags and mailers 
  • Phasing out metallic foil printing on product packaging
