Here we are in 2021, and we are still sheltering at home. For the most part, at least…depending on where you live. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t worn jeans much in quite some time now because of all this. I do try to wear them on occasion to jump start my brain to productive mode, but those comfy clothes definitely call my name eventually during the day. Either way, trying to stay somewhat stylish is a bit more effective when trying to stay focused and get stuff done than staying in my pajamas is. So, why not find a middle ground? There are so many fun options for fashionable loungewear out there that are sure to help pick up your mood and get you up and running (in a figurative sense). And of course, there is a lot of great sustainable loungewear out there to fit that mold.
Alternative is no newbie to the style market, being a longtime veteran in the basics, activewear and loungewear departments. I’ve been a fan of theirs for awhile due to their supersoft eco-friendly fabrics that go with everything and stand the test of time (both in terms of durability and style). Using soft, sustainable fabrics (like TENCEL™ modal, hemp blends and OEKO-TEX® and GOTS-certified organic cotton, upcycled cotton, ), ethical WRAP-certified factories, low-impact dyes and water-conserving washes is their specialty. Their collection of sustainable loungewear and basics, Alternative Eco®, takes things a step further, with recycled plastic bottles contributing to these fabric blends. They state that one million plastic bottles are recycled yearly! In addition, Alternative’s packaging is 100% compostable and break down within six months. I’ve posted a lot about apparel and accessories made from recycled plastic bottles, and I’m so happy to see this isn’t slowing down anytime soon, as we definitely need a better solution for our growing use of single-use plastics around the globe.
Here are some of my favorite sustainable loungewear picks from the Alternative Eco® line, with even more to shop from at the bottom of this post. Stay comfy (and cute) while you work from home while knowing you’re contributing to a great cause!

“Signature-soft and natural like classic cotton – but extra feel-good. That’s because it’s made from upcycled cotton fibers. With a heavier body and touchably soft texture, you won’t want to live without it”
