(Filed Under wholesale Basics News). Hanky Panky has expanded its organic cotton selection for the upcoming fall season.

According to Gale Epstein, Hanky Panky's president and creative director, retail prices run in line with their lace collection - $18 for thongs and $29 for panties - to encourage customers to purchase the eco-friendly line. It will hit stores this June or July.

They have also implemented environmentally responsible practices in the workplace, such as using the highest percentage post consumer recycled paper available, and encouraging employees to discard of their technotrash at a recycling facility on the premises.

Based in New York City, Hanky Panky is sold at a variety of department stores, online retailers and specialty boutiques including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and
