About Colorful Standard

Price Range: $11—$18

Socks may be a standard wardrobe item, but they doesn’t mean they have to look standard.

That’s where Colorful Standard and their gorgeous rainbow of 50+ colors comes in.

Because they’re simple solids, they’re incredibly verstaile, and can used for everything from sustainable dress socks to athletic socks, depending on your colors of choice.

Based on our experience testing them, these are also some of the most durable socks we’ve tried. The organic cotton is thick and hard-wearing, without sacrificing that glorious soft feel and breathability.

But if you want to be on CS’s natural fiber socks crew, you have to like crew socks, because that’s the only cut on offer.

Colorful Standard’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices 


What is the most sustainable material for socks?

According Colorful Standard, it’s anti-pilling organic cotton, pure and simple. That’s what their original socks are made of, but they also have a new line of ethically sourced super soft merino wool socks.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

All products are ethically made in a Portuguese factory. If you find yourself in the bairro (neighborhood), they invite you to drop by.

Carbon commitments & green practices: 

Colorful Standard is all about slow fashion, which is why everything they make (like sustainable hoodies and t-shirts) is designed in simple, timeless, and often unisex styles to provide the ultimate everlasting wardrobe.

They also ship directly from their factory, minimizing the extra emissions of a middleman warehouse.

Community & charitable giving: 

CS founded, built, and continues to sponsor (with 5% of all sales) a football club and youth activity center in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

About Allbirds

Price Range: $12—$24

Hailing from San Francisco, this Allbirds is known around the globe for its eco-friendly sneakers

Its line of Trino® Socks is also well known in the world of eco-friendly socks. 

To pair with its sustainable running shoes, you’ll find plenty of sustainable running socks, as well as crew socks, hiking socks, ankle socks, and no show socks, all carefully designed to meet different performance needs. 

The Anytime No Show Sock is hands (er, feet?) down our favorite no-show sock ever. Unlike so many others we’ve tried, it actually stays put except for when in extreme motion. For example, we don’t go running in these socks, but for juts about anything else, they stay put all day long.

Allbirds’ Ethical & Sustainability Practices


The eco-friendly socks are made using a variety of different eco and recycled materials like TENCEL™, cruelty-free wool, recycled nylon, recycled polyester, plus smaller amounts of virgin polyester, nylon, and spandex. 

Their proprietary Trino™ (tree + Merino) yarn is soft, breathable, and moisture wicking—making it an ideal material for eco-friendly compression socks. It’s created from FSC certified eucalyptus tree fibers combined with ZQ Merino wool. 

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Allbirds provides detailed information about its eco-friendly materials, like where the merino wool is sourced (New Zealand), where it’s spun (Italy), and where the eucalyptus wood comes from (South Africa). 

Final assembly happens in WRAP-certified factories in China and/or South Korea.

Carbon commitments & green practices: 

Allbirds is Carbon Neutral Certified. Each product has a carbon footprint calculator and the numbers are getting smaller all the time.

90% of their packaging is made from recycled materials.

if you’re looking for duarble socks made in American, American-touch, wander into the fields of Harvest & Mill.

This all-American sustainable basics brand specializes in only the most simple and essential of wardrobe pieces.

Nothing represents that so much as their crew and ankle socks in simple, earthy colors.

Harvest & Mill’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


They’re made of a thick and cozy blend of 88% organic cotton, 10% stretch nylon, and 2% elastic.

The simple colors are actually not the result of dyes, but rather the natural colors of the cotton used.

They don’t process their fabrics with synthetic chemical finishes, bleach, or toxic dyes.

Supply chain & labor practices:

Harvest & MIll is our go-to source for American-made women’s clothing.

Because literally every step of their supply chain is USA-based—organic cotton farming, milling, and sewing.

Instead of contracting out to large companies, they partner with only small, ethical, and independent suppliers and factories.

Like their cotton and products, their biodegradable mailers are USA-made, too.

By investing in renewable energy and reforestation, Harvest & Mill fully offsets the carbon footprint of their operations.

About Boody

Price Range: $9—$15

Are bamboo socks eco-friendly?

They certainly can be if they’re from Certified B Corp Boody.

Even though Boody might sound like an -underwear-exclusive brand, their sustainable fashion offerings are a bit more bodacious than that: sustainable basics, activewear, baby clothing, sustainable sleepwear, and more. 

That means men’s and women’s sustainable no-show socks, sports socks, ankle socks, and ethical cushioned socks for lounging around in. 

If you’re looking for sustainable socks in Australia, this originally Australian brand is the place to go, but they also have a US branch for USA sustainable socks. 

Boody’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


Boody’s main material squeeze is bamboo viscose, manufactured in a certifiably sustainable way.

The bamboo is grown organically in China before being processed in a closed-loop system that uses non-toxic solvents. It’s certified by Ecocert, OEKO-TEX, FSC, and ISO 9001, and is PETA-approved vegan. 

For their inexpensive eco-friendly socks, the bamboo viscose is blended with organic cotton, nylon, and lycra.

They’re also ISO 14001-compliant.

They even SGS test their packaging, which consists of recycled paper boxes printed with vegetable inks.

About Patagonia

Price Range: $18—$32

Sustainable fashion old-timer Patagonia has been operating consciously—even before it was cool.

Now, they combine sports, stories, and activism with their long-lasting sustainable t-shirts, ethical leggings, and so much more.

While they do have a selection of crew and quarter ethical socks that are ideal for daily wear, Patagonia is all about sustainable high quality socks for the outdoors, from ethical trainer socks to sustainable ski socks.

Patagonia’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


For thick sustainable socks made from recycled materials, have a look at their hemp socks made from 35% recycled cotton, 35% recycled polyester, and 30% hemp. 

Other eco-friendly materials include responsibly sourced merino wool, 100% of which is RWS-certified

It’s blended with nylon, most of which now comes from recycled sources. But if you’re wondering, “Are wool socks compostable?”, these aren’t because the percentage of nylon (41%) is too high to qualify as compostable socks.

All of the dyes are PVC-free and phthalate-free.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Patagonia works with Fair Trade certified factories for 87% of their goods, including an American-owned one for their made-in-the-USA sustainable wool socks

The Footprint Chronicles on the bottom of each product page show what factory and what country each item was made in. 

No wonder Patagonia consistently ranks in the top tier of Fashion Revolution’s Fashion Transparency Index.

Carbon commitments & green practices: 

This brand recycles chemicals and uses bluesign®-approved processes, along with 87% recycled, eco-friendly materials.. 

They also offer a buyback and resale program (Worn Wear Initiative), offer lifetime repairs, and are currently in the process of creating a certificate for regenerative agriculture.

Community & charitable giving: 

Patagonia is a founding member of 1% for the Planet

They’ve taken corporate responsibility to a new level, working to spread awareness about environmental and social issues and getting people involved through their Patagonia Action Works program.

Since selling the company to two environmental nonprofits, “Earth is [Patagonia’s] only shareholder”.

About Kotn

Price Range: $10—$18

Certified B Corp Kotn has the fourth-highest B Impact Score of apparel brands in North America.

This Canadian brand works directly with cotton farming families in Egypt, specializing in a farm-to-table-esque system that directly supports the farmers and provides customers with long-lasting wardrobe staples. 

As for your feet, Kotn keeps it basic with dress, crew, and sustainable ankle socks. Check them out if you’re looking for sustainable socks in Canada. 

Kotn’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


Kotn’s Egyptian Giza “white gold” cotton, (the main material in their ethical sustainable socks, t-shirts, and pajamas), is stronger than regular cotton and will last longer.

It’s grown in nutrient-rich soils on farms that will be 100% certified organic within the next five years.

It’s blended with 17% polyamide and 3% elastane, meaning they’re not biodegradable socks.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Using direct trade practices (like those in the coffee and tea industries), Kotn is able to directly support family-run farms and keep their prices stable and much higher than the average. 

They carry out regular audits to ensure fair working conditions are maintained, provide farming subsidies, and practice equal opportunity employment.

Carbon commitments & green practices: 

Kotn’s Giza cotton is the rarest type of Egyptian cotton. It only grows on a 100km stretch of land in Egypt’s Nile Delta. Since they manufacture nearby, the whole supply chain is super local.

Kotn also handpicks their cotton, which preserves the integrity of the fibers, creates fewer emissions, and provides more jobs.

Community & charitable giving: 

Partnering with a local Egyptian non-profit, Kotn helps prevent child labor by donating a portion of its proceeds to help fund and build primary schools.

How We Found The Best Eco-Friendly Socks

You know when you can’t find a sock?

You sift through the laundry, look in your closet, and check under the bed.

That’s kind of what we did here—to find the brands with the best ethical socks we had to do a bit of digging.

So what are sustainable socks?

Like some other garments, there’s a lot of intricacies knitted into warm woolies so we used our sustainable and ethical fashion guide to hunt down the most sustainable socks.


What are eco socks made of, exactly?

We looked for brands that keep our toes toasty with some of the same fabrics that made our list of the most sustainable fabrics

We look for socks made from GOTS certified organic cotton, recycled cotton, bamboo fabric, lyocell, TENCEL™ lyocell, recycled wool, and ethical wool socks. 

However, for those wondering “Are socks compostable?”, the answer in terms of this list is pretty much always, “NO”, because most socks (especially sustainable athletic socks) are mixed with a percentage of synthetic fabric, namely polyester, nylon, and elastane for the stretch. 

In order to qualify as compostable socks, they would need to be basically plastic free socks, or contain less than 10% of synthetic fibers (the smaller the better).

When it comes to these synthetics, we looked for socks made from recycled plastic—like recycled plastic bottle socks.

Hopefully, sustainable stretch fabrics like Eco LYCRA® and Roica yarn will take the sock and sustainable activewear world by storm soon. Until then we’ll try to stick with brands that use mostly natural materials, prioritize recycled socks, and minimize elastane and spandex. 

Supply chain & labor practices:

We also looked at what brands are doing from a social standpoint including employing fair labor practices, ensuring safe workplaces, living wages, protection from abuse and harassment, and general employee satisfaction.

While they can’t 100% guarantee no greenwashing, third party certifications provide a little extra assurance. 

Carbon commitments & green practices: 

Brands that can prove their ethical running socks go the extra mile with practices such as carbon offsetting, plastic-free packaging, localized supply chains, take-back programs, and zero waste manufacturing, get a big thumb’s (err..toe’s?) up. 

Community & charitable giving:

Do you know what keeps our toes extra toasty? 

Knowing that all of the brands on this list are also brands that give back

Whether through charity donations, environmental activism, supporting the communities that make their products, or finding a way to keep clothing out of landfills, we’re on board for any way companies positively use their profits and platforms.

Final Thoughts on Eco-Friendly Sock Brands

Clean socks, clean planet. That’s the aim of eco-friendly socks. 

While they might not be the most stylish of fashion pieces, they are an essential part of any sustainable wardrobe.

Of course, you should only order a pair of these environmentally friendly socks if and when you need them. 

You may have the skills to darn those holes but if you don’t, then put this list to good use and support brands trying to change the game.

Pop some affordable sustainable socks on your wish list along with a pair of ethical slippers and then have a read of our article on what to do with old socks.

  1. Thank you for writing this article. I have been trying to find compostable socks for ages. I didn’t realize they could have Any synthetic in them so finding out that they can have a little elastane is useful info! Thanks! 🙂 Btw, Housework has some 100% compostable cotton & wool socks. Alas, they are …not in most people’s budget. But hopefully they will become so popular that the price will come down a bit. 🙂
