As a business operating within the textile industry, one of the largest contributors to world pollution, we take ownership of our responsibility to be environmentally conscious with our Zero Waste policy
. We’re constantly looking for alternative, eco-friendly and sustainable initiatives so our business leaves a smaller footprint on the planet.
Eco-friendly & Sustainable Choices End-to-End
We strive to have minimal environmental impact throughout every part of our business operations. Through conscious choice of fabric and suppliers, cutting edge production processes that minimise product waste, choosing packaging that is compostable and creating a healthy work-life balance for staff.
We use organic and sustainably sourced bamboo, Tencel™ Modal and cotton to create our beautifully comfortable garments.
All our bras, knickers, shapewear and outerwear are produced in factories approved by European Department Stores. We choose to only support ethical garment production factories with fair work policies and who utilise water-saving technology and zero pesticides with the following certifications to prove it:
Our Hero Packaging mailers
are 100% biodegradable and home compostable. Your orders are shipped to you in Hero Packaging bags
made with ground-breaking technology that decomposes in just 90-120 days. Goodbye plastic!
Our individual garment bags are also home compostable so you can be assured your purchase is not contributing to plastic waste but your garment arrives protected.
We use FSC
Certified Paper for our tags and none of our excess stock is ever sent to landfill and instead is given to non-profit organisations to help those who need them.
We source from sustainable and organic growers using water-saving technology and zero pesticides to create our beautifully comfortable bamboo viscose garments ("viscose" is any fibre created from wood pulp). Bamboo grows extremely fast with very little water and pesticides - a super eco-friendly fabric! Fast growing and self-propagating bamboo is the perfect solution for a growing population.
We use specialised Italian knitting machines that minimise product wastage and create exceptional quality and virtually seamless bamboo viscose fabric.
Bamboo is incredibly soft, feels wonderful against the most sensitive of skin, is warm in winter and cool and breathable in summer. Bamboo knickers and bras
are so soft and comfortable you won’t even know you're wearing them!
Eco-friendly and biodegradable, Tencel™ Modal is a luxurious, plant-based textile made from beech tree pulp, featuring a fine weave for exquisite softness and breathability, stretch and strength.
Tencel™ Lyocell fibers have gained a commendable reputation for their environmentally responsible closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low environmental impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%. Rest assured your fashion choices are not contributing to an adverse impact on the environment.
EcoLux™ is our signature blend of Tencel™ Modal and Organic Cotton.
The strength and beauty of organically grown cotton combined with the natural softness of Tencel™
Modal creates the most amazing fabric for the perfect T-Shirts and ¾ Sleeve Tops
Ecolux™ has been expertly blended to drape the body with no hugging or bunching at our curves for the most flattering look. Gorgeously soft and a slightly heavier weight than most t-shirt materials, Ecolux™ promotes cooling and comfort with temperature regulating technology through natural, breathable fibres. Made from sustainably produced Tencel™, organic cotton and spandex, Ecolux™ feels beautiful on even the most sensitive skin – and like all Bella Bodies styles, is made to last.
