Best Ethical Pyjamas & Sleepwear: Dreamy Brands & Guide

Wouldn’t you sleep more peacefully knowing that your nightwear isn’t full of toxic chemicals and was made by workers who’re paid fair wages?

We bet you already have some sustainable clothes, but it’s easy to forget about bedtime.

So, let’s help you find the best ethical pyjamas to complete your wardrobe.

What makes ethical pyjamas and nightwear sustainable?

Most fast fashion nightwear consists of cotton or polyester, which are some of the worst fabrics for the environment.

Fast fashion clothes are known to involve toxic substances and chemicals like phthalates, harmful synthetic dies, and heavy metals.

They’re also designed to fall apart after a few wearings, which increases textile waste.

On top of that, when a brand isn’t transparent about its supply chain, it usually means that their clothes are manufactured in sweatshop-style factories.

Instead, the best ethical pyjamas are:

  • Made with the most sustainable fabrics, like organic cotton or bamboo
  • Free from toxic chemicals
  • Designed to last for many years, reducing waste
  • Made by workers who are treated well and paid fair wages
