By Laura Ella makes sure that comfort, ethics and sustainability are the very foundation of everything we do. We LOVE finding new companies to support which share our values as we feel it is our duty as consumers to be informed on where our money goes.
There are so many ethically sourced and sustainable clothing companies out there who make some of my favourite loungewear items! Here is just a tiny list of some amazing companies to check out who create products with the planet and fair labour at their heart. (Also they’re the COMFIEST things that I have ever owned!).
