Eco-Friendly Fashion: Why Modal Underwear Should Be Your Next Choice

Eco-Friendly Fashion: Why Modal Underwear Should Be Your Next Choice

BACK TO Paire Lounge

Need to overhaul your underwear collection, but worried about negatively impacting the planet? We all know underwear is a basic necessity, but what if your daily essentials could be incredibly comfortable and eco-friendly? That's the magic of modal underwear. This blog post digs into modal fabrication and explores how it can be a game-changer for your comfort and the environment.

Textile Waste & You

The fashion industry casts a long shadow, and unfortunately, a large part of it isn't very eco-friendly. Fast fashion, emphasising cheap, trendy clothing, is a major contributor to pollution. From resource depletion to harmful chemicals used in production, the environmental cost of this industry is huge. Modal underwear offers a refreshing alternative – a chance to embrace comfort and style while making a more sustainable choice for the planet.

Making a Difference with Sustainable Undies

There's a growing movement towards sustainable fashion choices, and modal underwear is a great way to get involved.

Made from renewable beechwood trees, modal offers a clear eco-friendly edge over synthetic fabrics. Plus, its production is generally less impactful on the environment than cotton, which often relies on harsh chemicals and excessive water usage. And the good news doesn't stop there! Modal underwear's renowned durability means your favourite pair will stay comfy for longer, reducing textile waste from frequent replacements. At Paire, we take sustainability even further. Our supply chain is vertically integrated, meaning we control where our undies are made and how many we produce.

Responsible Wood Sourcing

When checking if your modal fabric is sustainable, you need to go back to the source. Check where the raw materials used to craft products are being sourced from. Go further than checking the tag on your new modal underwear; dig into the company's background, checking that the modal fabric is coming from beechwood trees grown in responsibly managed forests. This ensures these woodlands are healthy and thriving for generations to come, never sourced from endangered or ancient forests and rainforests. 

Closed-Loop Manufacturing

Comfort shouldn't come at the expense of the planet. One of the biggest environmental concerns in modal production is the use of chemicals. Traditionally, these chemicals can pose a risk if not disposed of properly, potentially harming nearby ecosystems. 

You need to find clothing made by brands partnering with suppliers who utilise closed-loop solvent systems. This means the chemicals used in the production process are captured and reused, significantly reducing waste and minimising the risk of environmental contamination. It's a win-win for both comfort and the planet, ensuring a future where style and sustainability go hand-in-hand.

Vertically Integrated Supply Chains

Traditionally, the fashion world has relied on a complex network of suppliers and manufacturers. Vertical integration means taking more control over the supply chain. Instead of relying solely on external suppliers, we’re taking the reins at Paire. This allows for greater oversight and ensures that sustainable practices are prioritised throughout the process.

Why is vertical integration important for your modal underwear? It all boils down to transparency and control. This level of control allows us to deliver the ultimate comfort in modal underwear while ensuring a minimal environmental footprint. It's a win-win for both you and the planet.

Reap The Economic Rewards

Beyond its luxurious comfort and eco-friendly nature, modal underwear offers a surprising economic advantage: durability. Unlike some fabrics that wear out quickly, modal is renowned for its shape retention. This translates to your favourite pair staying comfy and supportive for washes to come. The result? Fewer replacements are needed, saving you money in the long run. So, while indulging in major softness and making a sustainable choice, modal underwear is also kind to your wallet. It's a win-win for comfort, the planet, and your bank account!
