The Best Men’s Sustainable Pajamas
Sustainable fashion isn’t just for women, there are a growing number of brands who offer ethically made and stylish clothes for men, including pajamas!
What we wear at night is so important for a good night’s sleep and can even make the difference between a good day and a really bad day. That’s why it’s so crucial to pick pajamas that you’ll be happy with and feel good about buying.
What to look for when shopping sustainable men’s pajamas
If you’re on the hunt for some sustainable men’s pajamas, (you’ve come to the right place!) there are a few things you may want to keep in mind.
Firstly, look for pajamas made from more sustainable materials such as organic cotton, Tencel, bamboo, and linen. Try to avoid materials like polyester, acrylic and fleece (a synthetic version of wool). It’s best to check what the brand has to say about the material they use, for example is it certified in any way to ensure it’s traceable and sustainably produced, and do they source from one country or multiple countries? You’ll notice that the sustainable brands are very transparent about where they get their material from and who’s involved in the supply chain. If a brand isn’t making noise about this, it’s a bit of a red flag.
It’s also important to ensure your pajamas have been ethically made by garment workers who have been given the same rights and working conditions that you would expect for yourself. This can include safe working conditions, fair wages, access to childcare and medical support, and a host of other aspects that would allow them to be happy and healthy at work.
