The 12 Best Sustainable Brands Australia You Need To Know About

Have you heard about plastic free July? 

In an effort to be a part of the solution to plastic pollution, Plastic Free July is a global movement led by The Plastic Free Foundation – a global not-for-profit organisation started by Rebecca Prince-Ruiz and her small team in Western Australia. The aim of the movement is to help millions of people have cleaner streets, oceans and beautiful communities by choosing to refuse single-use plastics and by sharing plastic free solutions to help people and organisations contribute to a world without plastic waste!

Koala Eco

Looking to join in on this movement? To help you jumpstart your own plastic-free movement or jumpstart the beginning of your sustainable lifestyle, I’ve decided to compile this mega list of all the best sustainable brands Australia has on offer as well as ways you can move towards ethical online shopping Australia wide . 

Sustainable Brands Australia

1. Modibodi

A total life changer for women everywhere and a leader in ethical brands Australia, Modibodi was founded to help women better manage their periods, sweat and incontinence in a more comfortable and dignified way, that is better for both their bodies and the environment.

Recently, Modibodi partnered up with PUMA to launch a range of leak-free period activewear and underwear that provides the right support for women on their period; so they can be more confident and comfortable as they achieve their athletic and daily goals while reducing their monthly waste from period products and leave a positive impact on the environment.

Looking to try some of your own Modibodi activewear or underwear? We recommend checking out the Classic Thong which perfectly sits on the hip and offers a ‘No Visible Panty Line’ finish. It is the ideal go-to for sneaky drips, period spotting, or light discharge. The Classic Full Brief is another good choice for those who need full coverage support on their heavy period days. Its low leg finish, high waist and full booty coverage design help keep you protected overnight, so you can enjoy a stress-free sleep – and no more messy sheets.

4. Boody

With the goal of delivering the ultimate comfort, not just for you but for the planet too, Boody creates high-quality, sustainable, super soft everyday essentials using organically-grown bamboo and sustainable manufacturing practices that are taking environmentally friendly to the next level. 

Why use organically grown bamboo you might ask? Well, not only is this fabric eco-friendly but it is also moisture-wicking, hypoallergenic, highly breathable and comfy which is perfect for garments that sit close to the skin.

For the ladies, we recommend trying out the Boody Full Briefs – a soft, supportive and flattering, high-waisted full coverage underwear that is seamfree and has a soft-ribbed waistband that prevents digging while also giving a seamless appearance under clothing. 

The Padded Shaper Crop Bra is another great product to try as it is a wire-free bra that features smooth and lightly padded removable cups. It also features wide fabric straps to ensure there is no digging around the shoulders.

They are also incredibly committed to reducing their impact on the environment by constantly developing and finding new ways to be more sustainable.

For recommendations, we love the Sports Crop as it not only looks stylish but also delivers on both performance and comfort. It also provides medium support, and extra lift to look perfect under your favourite active top or tank. The Training Pocket Full Length Tight is another great buy as these high-waisted tights don’t budge at all no matter how much you move.
