At Y.O.U Underwear, we try to have a positive impact on the environment. We work towards this in a number of ways, and have third party verifications for our claims. We've put together a list of our certifications to help you learn more about our sustainable commitments...
What We're Doing
Fairtrade CottonLearn More About Fairtrade
Fairtrade sets a number of standards and imposes checks to make sure these are being met.
These include the protection of workers’ rights, the upholding of certain environmental standards and that farmers are paid fair prices (never below the market rate) for their products.
GOTS Certified Organic CottonMore About Organic Cotton
Conventional cotton is one of the world's most polluting crops, which is why we use GOTS Certified Organic Cotton in all of our underwear.
GOTS certify every step of the supply chain, from harvesting through production, ensuring that rigorous social and environmental standards are being met.

PETA-Approved VeganOur Underwear is Vegan & Cruelty-Free
