These brands of maternity wear are all made from sustainable materials like organic cotton, linen or hemp. Some brands may include a little elastane (a synthetic fibre) for a little more comfort. If so, then launder with a microplastic catcher, to stop these fibres escaping the washing machine, and going into the sea.
Choosing natural fibres is good for the planet and your skin, and ensures that end of life, the fibres break down naturally at landfill. Or even better, donate them on to another new mum, perhaps one who can’t afford to buy organic fibres new (though these stores all have regular sale bargains).
Frugi (UK) offers gorgeous nursing clothes, all made from organic cotton, and sent in biodegradable packaging, made from potatoes! Designed in Cornwall and made ethically in India (where the company supports a local orphanage), these award-winning clothes have special design features for discreet breastfeeding.
