Sustainable Loungewear Guide

Sustainable Loungewear Guide
23 Shares

Whether you’re working from home, or just lounging around the house, if you’re on the hunt for sustainable loungewear that you can feel good about buying, I’ve got you covered! I spent weeks pulling together my favorite sustainable brands and scouring the web for new undiscovered gems to bring you this guide. Since everyone has different tastes, I’ve got a wide variety of sustainable loungewear styles too, so there’s sure to be something for everyone here!

Before we jump into the good stuff, I wanted to touch quickly on how I filtered this list, and selected these companies that I thought had substantial sustainability initiatives for their loungewear. When looking at a brand’s sustainability, some of the main categories of impact include materials, production, and packaging. 

Through my research, I found that many companies who labeled themselves as sustainable were excited to share their ethical production and sustainable packaging initiatives (which are both great!). However, it was inherently less common to see companies using sustainable materials as well, which is why I decided to focus my guide mostly on that.

Ok, so we’re looking for sustainable materials. What’s that even look like? Well, the most common types are made of:

– Recycled materials (either from plastic or other recycled fabrics)

– Natural fibers (like hemp)

– Organic materials (like organic cotton)

– Deadstock (unused fabric that would have been thrown away)

Alright, now that you know what we’re looking for,  let’s jump into it!

Pricing Guide:

$ = under $100

$$ = $100 – $150

$$$ = $150 – $200 

$$$$ = over $200

My Favorite Sustainable Loungewear Brands:

blue and red sustainable hoodie
rainbow colored sustainable tshirt

Marine Layer

Price: $-$$

Size Range: XS-XL

Based in: San Francisco, California

Materials: Recycled Plastics, Upcycled Cotton, Tencel, Modal, Linen, Organic Cotton, and Hemp

I could write a love letter to Marine Layer that would go on forever, but to get down to it, they design vintage-inspired, comfy pieces that will last a lifetime. They’re obsessed with only using the highest quality and softest fabrics, that they develop themselves with the goal of minimizing their environmental impact. Everything is produced small-batch, with a quality that’s built to last, and they even created an entire clothing line, Re-Spun, made of old tees that their customers had donated, which they then recycled into the comfiest line of sustainable loungewear out there. If you donate some old tees, they’ll even send you a giftcard to make purchasing your first piece that much easier.

Inspired by old school Cali surf’n’skate culture, Back Beat Co focuses on producing colorful basics like tees and sweatshirts, infused with vintage style elements. They focus on using “Low Impact” fabrics that are either recycled or sustainably farmed. Their pieces are certainly a bit edgier than some of the other basics I’ve included in this list, but I really love their style!

Price: $-$$

Size Range: XS-XL

Based in: Ventura, California

Honestly, Patagonia is a pillar in the sustainability space, and something most brands on this list probably look to for inspiration. From their use of sustainable materials to their Worn Wear program where you can buy used Patagonia clothing to their ethical production – the list of reasons why you should love Patagonia goes on and on. Their CEO has even come out and said he doesn’t want people to buy more Patagonia, but hold on to what they have, which is crazy!! Not to mention, you know for sure that their sustainable loungewear pieces won’t go out of style as most Patagonia styles are classics that have literally been around for 50+ years.

However, they use deadstock material from large fashion houses, that would otherwise be put to waste, and therefore are creating beautiful sustainable loungewear from otherwise trashed materials. If you’re looking for slightly different materials, then definitely check Dame out.
