When it comes to what we wear, we mostly focus on what we wear out and about, and maybe what we wear at home too. What tends to get forgotten is what we put on for bed. This is surprising considering we spend around a third of the day there (more like half if you’re me). So wouldn’t it make sense to put a little more thought into how we dress for these 8 or so hours a day? Yes, it would. This is where sustainable pajamas come in.
So what should you look for when browsing nightwear? Look for high-quality, ultra-comfortable eco sleepwear that will serve you for years to come. Here’s a variety of dreamy sustainable pajamas that won’t break your bank, so you can rest easy when the sandman comes calling.
Let me ask you a question. How long do you spend in your PJs? Be honest! It’s a no judge place here. Personally, I’ve been living in my pajamas for the last couple of weeks and I don’t even feel guilty about it.
I work from home, and comfort is the highest priority for me. So when the weather is grumpy gray, and it happens to overlap with *that* time of the month (eeek, girls will know), I just can’t bother putting any effort into my look. Having a good piece of sustainable sleepwear I can rely on really comes in handy here.
Below, I have gathered a selection of my favorite conscious nightwear pieces. All of them are responsibly made with sustainability in mind, free from toxic chemicals, and a better choice for the Planet compared to their fast fashion alternatives.
So whether you’re shopping for a cozy earth-friendly pajama for yourself, or you’re on the hunt for a good, money-worth, eco gift for your sister, mom, or girlfriend, this guide has what you’re looking for.
THESE COZY SUSTAINABLE PAJAMAS MAKE FOR THE BEST NIGHTS SLEEP:
1. Organic Bamboo Pajamas
Starting off with the bamboo pajamas, because I’m convinced that there is nothing more comfortable! When it comes to organic bamboo, BOODY is the best place for you! This vegan Australian brand has literally thought of every single detail when they were designing their garments. I have bamboo clothes in my wardrobe, but their pieces are, honestly, next level. They’re the kind of sustainable sleepwear Australia should make mandatory. They are just so soft and so incredibly comfy!!
Once you get your hands on them, you can tell that you’ve invested in quality. Bamboo pajamas are fantastic for people with sensitivities as the bamboo fibers are naturally smooth with no sharp spurs to irritate the skin. So if you want to treat yourself to a PJ set that you can keep for the long run, definitely check out BOODY.
2. Organic Cotton Pajamas
When you’re buying cotton nighties, always look for organic cotton ones. When you go organic, you prevent the use of harmful chemicals that contaminate the soil, air, and water where the cotton is made. It also produces nearly half the CO2 than standard cotton. And to top it all off, it uses less water to grow, as producers tend to rely more on rain than irrigation. I think it’s fair to say that organic cotton loungewear is the way to go.
The London-based ethical fashion brand People Tree is perhaps the best place for organic cotton PJs when you’re on a budget but still want to bet on quality and fair trade production. This label makes all of its clothing to the highest ethical and environmental standards, so you just can’t go wrong with it.
I’m obsessed with this pink set. It would make a great gift for a younger sister!
3. Pact Pajamas
Another fantastic brand for affordable sustainable sleepwear is PACT. I mean, how flattering is this two-piece hem sleep set? It comes in four gorgeous colors, and it’s made of 100% organic cotton in a fair trade certified factory. This means good for you and good for the environment!
Personally, I love loungewear sets because you can mix and match them with other items, allowing for more creativity and cute outfit combinations. At the end of the day, wearing and re-wearing the clothes you own is the most sustainable fashion practice you can do.
4. Coyuchi Pajamas
If you’re in the market for classic conscious nightwear from sustainable pajama brands, take a look at COYUCHI. Their jammies are made of GOTS-certified organic cotton, and they are perfect for minimalists. What’s worth mentioning about this brand is that they produce their garments in a factory that recycles 98% of its wastewear. How is that for sustainability?!
Whether you’re searching for womens sustainable pajamas, men’s, or even eco bedding – from sheets to pillows, blankets, and duvets, COYUCHI has it all.
5. Vegan Silk Pajamas
Unfortunately, silk is not a vegan-friendly material, but thankfully there are some amazing companies out there, such as Ettitude. They have taken into consideration the needs of vegans and have blessed us with their stunning vegan silk-like pajamas.
This beautiful sateen cami, comprised of sustainable clean bamboo, is a great alternative to the conventional silk camisole. It comes in three gorgeous colors making it really hard to pick a favorite.
6. Sustainable Pajama Sets
I added this Reformation pajama set to my Christmas wishlist earlier this month, so I had to include it here too. It’s simple, it’s classy, and it’s so stylish!! Some people only wear short sets in the summer, but I’d personally wear this one all year round.
The fabric is 100% TENCEL™ Lyocell which is a good fabric choice to keep an eye for when you are shopping with sustainability in mind.
7. Sustainable Pajama Shorts
When it comes to PJ shorts, there are so many options out there. Finding a good pair that is comfy, looks cute, and is also eco-friendly, can be a challenge. Especially if you’re not sure where to look for.
Good news for you as I found the ultimate Style By Savina approved sustainable pajama shorts, worth splashing out on! These lovely Cosabella jersey shorts can be worn as sleepwear or loungewear, all day, every day. Over and over again. I love the flattering relaxed fit and the side pockets.
As for compositions, they are made of modal, which is a man-made fiber that is derived from natural materials and is completely biodegradable. You can expect some serious good karma points for making such good decisions for the environment.
8. Sustainable Pajama Pants
Boden has a variety of stylish luxury sustainable pajama pants at great prices. I own a few Boden clothing pieces myself, and the quality has never disappointed me. The British brand’s mission is to produce clothes that are designed to last.
For those who love a bit more color in their lives, check out their night collection. There’s a great variety of patterns and designs. They even have sleepwear for men and children too!
