UCA Lingerie: ‘Think Sexy, Shop Sustainably’

(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). “Think Sexy, Shop Sustainably,” is a core belief at UCA Lingerie, and one reason it has found a growing following among North American retailers.

Ten years ago, the sustainability of lingerie or how ethically it was produced may not have figured significantly in many consumers’ buying decisions. But that has certainly changed. Stores now realize that shoppers are focusing on apparel makers that are good to the environment and friendly to their workers, and they are now stocking their shelves with those labels that are leading the change.

“There are many ways to create a more eco-friendly wardrobe of bras, panties, and lingerie,” explained UCA Lingerie founder and CEO Ms. Adah Hanson. “Shopping sustainable lingerie from UCA is where you can find styles you love while supporting the well-being of our earth and its citizens.”

Sustainable lingerie begins with “high quality, low waste” according to Hanson. “With 92 million tons of textile waste going into landfills each year, it’s time to re-frame how we look at our clothing. While cheaply made clothing tends to be less expensive, opting for higher-quality construction means that your garments last longer and need to be replaced less often. Most bras need to be replaced in about six months. The luxury materials and thoughtful construction of UCA Lingerie’s sustainable styles increase that lifespan.”

She added, “you don’t have to increase your price point when looking for new, sustainable bras. You should look for styles you’ll love and fabrics that make you feel good. Our soft, skin-friendly styles, like Candice or Lily’s recycled stretch lace, are lingerie you want to wear.”

Versatile, adaptable lingerie and bras that know how to change with your body are other elements that enhance the sustainability of UCA. “But our commitment to sustainability goes beyond quality construction. Even the dyes we use are chosen with the environment in mind. With our certification from OEKO TEX, our manufacturing team has committed to selecting dyes and textiles that don’t contain toxic chemicals.”

“Dyeing clothing uses tons of water,” the CEO continued. “Even one kilogram of cotton uses 20,000 liters of water. For the average person, that would be nearly three years of drinking water. After the fabric is dyed, all of that contaminated water needs to be disposed of and winds up leaking into the soil and the waterways. This causes contamination and pollutes drinking water in areas like China and Bangladesh. One of the most notorious, harmful culprits is Azo dye. These water-soluble dyes are cheap to use but break down easily, releasing harmful chemicals into the environment. Beyond their impact on the environment, these dyes are known to be irritating to the skin and eyes and are carcinogenic—they are even banned in the European Union.”

Sustainable-focused UCA Lingerie also keeps textiles from landfill by re-purposing post-consumer waste into quality, recycled materials that it uses in new garments. “According to our OEKO-TEX certification, recycled materials must be at least 20% recycled and meet quality guidelines. UCA has also been certified by the Global Recycling Standard (GRS). These two certifications mean that UCA has dedicated itself to meeting and exceeding expectations for environmentally-conscious construction.”

“In addition to using recycled materials, UCA employs a high percentage of natural textiles like cotton, silk, rayon, and viscose. Our comfort cotton used in styles like Hailey is 100% natural and 100% luxurious.”

Operating an ethical working environment is a final element to the sustainable process at UCA Lingerie. “We believe that every person deserves a safe, supportive working environment. We have committed to ourselves, our workers, and our earth to ensure that our production, from materials to labor, is doing the most good. Part of making sure that our workers are taken care of is paying them a living wage. Additionally, UCA participates in the Higg Index. This assesses a clothing company’s environmental and social impact, ensuring that they are following their environmental and social responsibility.”

“With sustainable styles for everyday and special occasions,” Hanson concluded, “UCA Lingerie knows you can marry stylish selections with sustainable, ethical manufacturing. And consumers who seek out these properties in the brands they wear, know to look for the UCA label. And stores that carry our brand help to create a more beautiful world for women everywhere.”
