Some fashion items, no matter how ethically made, will never grace the pages of this site. Some just don't fit in with our style aesthetic.
We're talking items such as fisherman pants, scrunchies and friendship bracelets. Sorry if you're a brand that designs and sells these items. It's just not our thing.
However lingerie is a necessity. It is something we can't live without. And the more eco-friendly the better.
So here are some eco-lingerie and ethical sexy nightwear brands that will burn up the sheets and will inject romance and intimacy in the bedroom.
