Do you lounge in your PJs on Sunday mornings, or hop straight into them on Friday afternoons?

The most sustainable sleepwear option would be to go butt naked.
But if you get cold in winter or have housemates who don’t want to see your cheeks, here are some options for ethical sleepwear and pyjamas.

Throughout their design, production, shipping, and packaging, Coyuchi strives to reduce its waste and impact on the planet. They believe every drop matters and only work with factories who agree.

Coyuchi’s apparel (they also do sheets and bedding) includes waffles robes, eye masks, plaid pants, and dreamy cardigans.
