Changing the world… from the bottom-up! That is the idea behind underwear brand Saint Basics. With fabrics made of eucalyptus wood and organic cotton, they create super-soft and well-fitting basic. What makes their panties even more attractive, is that Saint Basics banned pesticides and other toxins. No chemical waste is left behind, anywhere in the process. Want to know more about how they do this? They provide elaborate information about all the steps in their supply chain on their website.
So why this brand?
Saint Basics uses no pesticides and other toxins through the production process and leaves no chemical waste behind.
The entire Saint Basics collection is made from GOTS-certified organic cotton and Tencel®. These are both sustainable fabrics.
Saint Basics only works with GOTS-certified suppliers that have to follow strict rules about their social policy. This way they can make sure that everyone in the chain, from the cotton farmers to the people behind the sewing machines, get paid fair wages and work under good conditions. They try to inspire people by making them see that making a fair and sustainable choice can be fun and easy. On their website they provide information about the origin of the fabrics, and the spinning mills and workshop in Portugal.
There are no animal products used in the collection of Saint Basics
Produced in the EU
The basics are constructed in a workshop in Porto. As Portugal is relatively close to the Netherlands, from where the goods are sold, Saint Basics reduces the transportation distance and related pollution.
