Leave Only Footprints with these 10 Sustainable and Eco Friendly Socks

*This post contains affilate links


Want to be sustainable from head to toe? Well, we’ve got some essentials that will knock your current unsustainable socks right off.

What used to be a boring Christmas gift from Grandma, now many of us really appreciate. Whether it’s for hiking, running, snowboarding, or simply snuggling up next to a fire with a good book, a comfy pair of eco friendly socks goes a long way. 

And the reality is, they should go a long way, without getting hole-y and without leaving a footprint on our planet (as much as possible anyway).

So, what exactly are sustainable socks

Well, they’re made with ecologically-sound materials using ethical labor practices by a brand that cares more than just straight profit. Sounds simple, right? Sort of, but there are also a lot of intricacies knit into those warm woolies, so to read more on how we picked these brands, skip down to the toe end of the article.

Oh and if you don’t have time try on all the pairs, Organic Basics has, well…all the basics and not to mention excellent transparency and labor practices. Boody’s sustainable bamboo socks for every occasion are a unique find in this sock heap. While Outerknown specializes in using recycled and upcycled materials for a select range of durable ethical socks.

1. ORGANIC BASICS

About Organic Basics

Organic Basics is a Danish company who started with men’s ethical undies. Today, they offer women’s intimates, activewear, sleepwear, and of course, socks. 

Their range includes ankle socks, active socks, active tennis socks, and no-show socks. They also combine some of the best eco friendly socks in sets with their other products to make shopping easier and reduce the impacts of packaging and shipping. 

As their name suggests, Organic Basic keeps things simple—which is better for the planet. They use natural materials, ethical practices, and even have a low impact website.

Organic Basics’ Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

The socks from Organic Basics are made with either organic cotton, recycled materials (like wool), or SilverTech enhanced with  Polygiene odor-blocking technology. What is Silver Tech, you ask?

These materials mean combining OEKO-TEX100-certified silver thread (as in the metal) or a Bluesign® approved recycled silver salt with GOTS-certified organic cotton. They leave the sock-wearer with a heat-regulating, odor-controlling, and anti-bacterial pair of socks. We were gifted one of their Silver Tech tees and love it, so we can only imagine the socks are equally as excellent.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Everything made by Organic Basics is done so using better working conditions, no child labor, living wages, freely chosen employment, and respect for the environment. They also use regular audits and SA8000 standards to ensure fair working conditions, are BSCI-compliant, and hold a Sedex membership.

OB is the OG of transparency—you can see their impact and the working conditions of every single factory they work with.  And with a supply chain entirely in Europe, they can maintain full traceability.

Green business practices: 

Saying “Goodbye carbon!”, OB offers free carbon neutral global shipping made possible by their purchasing of offsets that fund the UN verified Koru Wind Farm in Canakkale, Turkey.

To be even more transparent, they have product impact counters on their website and publish a yearly Impact Report.

Community & charitable giving: 

Their Organic Basics Fund provides biannual grants to fund any environmental organization that submits a proposal. They’ve supported some pretty inspiring past winners.

2. PACT

About Pact

Pact shows up a lot on our site, and for good reason. The Boulder, Colorado-based brand combines style, comfort, and sustainability to make “Earth’s favorite clothing.”

You’ve probably heard about Pact for their ultra-comfy tees, but they also sell bedding, underwear, and organic sustainable socks so you can totally fill your sock drawer with all thanks to Pact. They sell sustainable knee high socks, no-see-ums, ankle socks, and eco friendly men’s crew socks!

Pact’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

With Pact, your feet will stay warm and dry—and sustainable. They only use GOTS Certified organic cotton which is also Fair Trade Certified

According to Pact themselves, each pair of socks saves 19.4 gallons of water that would be used in the growth of conventional cotton.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

74% of their cotton comes from India, where everything is also produced in child-labor-free factories certified by Fair Trade USA.

Green business practices: 

They consider sustainability in their practices and do what they can to reduce energy consumption and conserve water. They also use conservative cutting methods so as not to produce much scrap fabric.

Community & charitable giving: 

Pact has a Give Back. Wear Forward program where people can send their gently-used clothes back to their brand (they don’t have to be Pact) for them to be distributed to nonprofits that need them. 

Even better, this also allows Pact and its customers to reuse packaging! The same boxes used for the order can be sent directly back to Pact for distribution to charity organizations.

3. OUTERKNOWN

Image by Outerknown
About Outerknown

Outerknown sums it up best “we’re making every decision with the highest regard for the hands that build our clothes and the world we call home.”

Started in 2015 by professional surfer Kelly Slater, Outerknown saw the writing on the fashion industry’s wall and didn’t want to be just another brand using ‘sustainability’ as a marketing slogan. Since then, they’ve:

  1. Used 90% organic, recycled, or regenerated fibers (and they hope to get even better).
  2. Used 100% renewable or recycled fibers for their swim trunks.
  3. Worked with five thousand fair trade workers. 
  4. Become Fair Labor Association accredited.

While their range of ethical sustainable socks is select, any of these foot happy sustainable socks will pair perfectly with their adventure-ready gear, like ethical T-shirts and sustainable selvedge S.E.A. jeans.

Outerknown’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

These socks are happy because they’re comfortable, they fit well, and they’re made with high-quality recycled fibers (and zero chemicals!). The average breakdown on their socks includes 51% recycled polyester, 46% upcycled cotton, and just 3% nylon and spandex.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

To make their ethical mens and women’s socks, Outerknown partners with a family-run factory in Japan with 104 years of sock making experience. 

Outerknown also publishes a full list of suppliers, uses Fair Trade USA Certified factories in Peru, Mexico, and China, and maintains a Code of Conduct based on Fair Labor Association (FLA) standards.

Green business practices: 

Using upcycled cotton means a water savings of about 50 gallons per pair. It also means a reduction of CO2 emissions (and keeps a valuable resource out of landfills!). The fact that they’re Bluesign certified means their manufacturing is also absent tons of harmful chemicals.

And they don’t stop there. Outerknown has already published a 2030 Sustainability Strategy and Commitment to Circularity, and are working toward helping their supply partners transition to renewable energy.

Community & charitable giving: 

Outerknown regularly supports the Ocean Conservancy through collaborative give-backs and campaigns to protect the oceans, our planet’s lifeblood. 

Their latest pro-ocean campaign was their ECONYL® NATO watch made through a partnership with luxury watch brand Breitling. For each watch sold, they donated $1,000 to Ocean Conservancy.

4. BOODY

About Boody

Are bamboo socks eco friendly? Boody thinks so—and in their case, we happen to agree. 

They’re an Australian-American brand that’s gone bonkers over bamboo and its sustainability, health, and comfort benefits.

Which is why they use this sustainable material in their everyday basics—men’s and women’s essentials, activewear, baby, sleepwear, and loungewear. So even though Boody might sound like an exclusive-underwear brand, their offerings are a bit more bodacious than that.

They’ve got socks for every purpose. They’ve got men’s and women’s low-cut socks, hidden socks, sports socks, and ankle socks. They’ve also got eco friendly hiking socks, ethical running socks, and even comfy eco friendly winter socks for just lounging around. It’s also used in their sustainable bamboo socks. 

It’s easy to see why we love this brand when you know what their goal for the fashion industry is:
“We’ve arrived at a point in time where we need to make change. There shouldn’t be an ‘eco’ category. There should only be an ‘eco’ category.”

Boody’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

Boody’s main squeeze in terms of materials is bamboo fiber viscose. While we sometimes have reservations about this material, Boody manufactures it in a certifiably sustainable way.

Grown organically in China before being processed in a closed loop system that uses non-toxic solvents and still captures and reuses them. Their bamboo is certified by Ecocert, OEKO-TEX, FSC, ISO 9001, and is PETA-approved vegan. If you take a close look at the label on their eco friendly athletic socks, you’ll find that, like most other socks out there, the materials do include about 20% synthetic materials (Nylon and elastane).

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Some of their certifications also cover their ethical labor practices. They’re certified by WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) which promotes safe and healthy working environments and prohibits forced labor, child labor, harassment, and abuse. They’re also ISO 14001 compliant.

Green business practices: 

To ensure their finished products are totally non-toxic (for you and the environment), they use SGS testing to assess durability and make sure they’re free of azo dyes, heavy metals, and formaldehyde. They even SGS test their packaging, which consists of recycled paper boxes printed with vegetable inks.

Community & charitable giving: 

Giving back is a big focus for Boody. They’re part of 1% for the Planet and also support Greening Australia, Thread Together, PropellerProjects, and the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.

5. ALLBIRDS

About Allbirds

What do you get when you add a merino loving New Zealander and an American renewables expert together? A shoe company that couples a sustainable resource with simple engineering and natural design, of course. And that’s the story of Allbirds

Hailing from San Francisco, this B-Corp is known ‘round the globe for their eco-friendly sneakers and slippers. Catering for all types of foot needs, their line of Trino Socks are also well known in the sustainable socks world, with options for men, women, and kids. 

According to Allbirds themselves, “Mother Nature made us do it.”

Allbirds’ Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

The environmentally friendly socks from Allbirds are made using cruelty-free merino wool. While each sock varies in terms of its materials, they all include a combination of recycled nylon, Tencel, ZQ Merino, and spandex. 

The merino uses 60% less energy than the materials used in typical synthetic shoes. As certified ZQ Merino wool, the farmers from which they source their wool use the best standards for animal welfare, farming, and land management. 

They also have their own proprietary yarn called Trino™ (tree + Merino), that’s soft, breathable, and moisture wicking—making it a great material for eco friendly compression socks. It starts with FSC certified eucalyptus tree fibers which are combined with ZQ Merino wool.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Allbirds is all about sharing their process with conscious consumers. They elaborate on where they source their wool (New Zealand), where it’s spun (Italy), and where their eucalyptus comes from (South Africa). 

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

Green business practices: 

90% of the packaging is recycled and, as of 2019, they’re  Carbon Neutral. Taking it even further, each product has a carbon footprint calculator (like a nutrition label for fashion)—and the numbers are getting smaller all the time!

Community & charitable giving: 

Through their Soles4Souls partnership, Allbirds donates lightly used shoes to communities in need.

6. PATAGONIA

About Patagonia

Patagonia – everybody knows this one. The ‘Gonia, as we like to call them, has made their way into many of our sustainable and ethical fashion articles. 

They’re an outdoor focused brand and have also been operating consciously—even before it was ‘cool.’ Now, they combine sports, stories, and activism with their long-lasting and eco friendly products. And this definitely includes their ethical socks

While they do have a great selection of crew and quarter socks that are great for daily wear, Patagonia is all about sustainable high quality socks for the outdoors. From their ethical winter socks to their eco friendly running socks, they’ve got every type of foot and activity covered.

Patagonia’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

Patagonia’s standout sock fabric is responsibly sourced merino wool that is woven at an American family-owned factory. However, their socks are not 100% sustainable as of yet.  Even these merino ones are blended with some virgin nylon (though at the rate Patagonia has been replacing virgin synthetics with recycled ones over the past few years, we’re hopeful that’ll change soon).

Their performance line replaces this merino wool with recycled polyester (still blended with some nylon and Lycra). All dyes are PVC-free and phthalate-free.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Patagonia works with the Responsible Wool Standard to certify their ethical merino socks. They also work with Fair Trade certified factories and are well on their way to ensuring fair wages for apparel workers—some of the lowest paid people on the planet.

Thanks to their The Footprint Chronicles on the bottom of each product page, you can see 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.

Green business practices: 

When it comes to the planet, this is where this nature-oriented brand really stands out. They recycle chemicals,  Bluesign® approved processes, offer a buyback and resale program (Worn Wear Initiative), offer LIFETIME repairs through their IronClad Guarantee, and are currently in the works of creating a regenerative farming certificate!

Community & charitable giving: 

Like a few others on this list, Patagonia contributes to 1% for the Planet. But unlike everyone else, they actually founded it. 

Aside from that, they’ve taken corporate responsibility to a new level, working to spread awareness about environmental and social issues and get people involved through their Patagonia Action Works program.

7. NAADAM

Image by Nadaam
About NAADAM

NAADAM may only sell one pair of socks, but they’re made with 100% Mongolian Cashmere – potentially the most comfortable sustainable wool socks on this list…especially for those on the hunt for some fireside-ready ethical warm socks.

The brand was the brainchild of two friends who were on a mission to sell the world’s fairest cashmere. They did this by forming direct partnerships with herders (eliminating price-gouging middle-men) and encompassing sustainability in every step of their supply chain.

NAADAM’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

NAADAM’s ethical cashmere socks join the sweaters, scarves, and hoodies that are made from cashmere along with renewable or recycled sources like silk, wool, and cotton. 

Their organic cashmere, which they call “the only cruelty-free cashmere,” comes from Mongolia’s Gobi Desert where the cashmere goats are hand combed in a way that’s good for the sheep (in addition to their funding of veterinary care programs). 

They use materials that are certified by GOTS, OEKO-TEX 100, Global Recycle Standard (GRS), and Responsible Wool Standard certifications. They also only work with suppliers who agree to treatment practices based on those from organizations like A Greener World and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Since their first cardigan was knitted, they’ve been committed to transparency, cultural preservation, ethical practices, and environmental sustainability. They’re hands-on, work directly with herders, and provide benefits like higher prices for herders, healthcare and retirement options, livestock insurance, clean drinking water, and parks provided for Gobi desert communities. 

While 90% of their stuff is made in China, it’s made in one of two BSCI and ILO compliant factories required to have documentation of third-party audits. They even check for regular wage adjustments to account for the increase in consumer price index.Anyone can take a peek at their full Social and Environmental Impact Report for more.

They also use FSC-certified recycled paper for the tags as well as 100% recycled plastic mailers. A closed-loop system is used for dyeing, green energy to power their facilities, and they carbon offset their shipping emissions, too (with the hopes of being carbon neutral by 2025)

They also work toward sustainability at the herding level, by fencing off their goats (don’t worry, it’s in an area the size of Manhattan) to prevent overgrazing and environmental damage. Fortunately, the Bayangovi region of the Gobi desert where the farm is shown to be less prone to such desertification.

Community & charitable giving: 

Giving in ways that go beyond the fair relationship with herding communities, NAADAM also contributes to a Mongolian non-profit called the Gobi Revival Fund. They also donate damaged and returned products to Green Tree Textiles (helping reduce waste at the same time).

Through this, they increase resilience against desertification, extreme weather, and climate change. The fund has also established a cooperative to help secure fair payments for Mongolian cashmere herders.

8. KOTN

Image by Kotn
About Kotn

Kotn is a relatively new brand that has carved out a name for itself in luxurious sustainability. A certified B-Corp, the Canadian brand “was born from a desire for good quality, simple essentials that didn’t cost a fortune.”

They work directly with cotton farming families in Egypt and specialize in a farm-to-table-esque system that directly supports the farmers and provides customers with comfy and long-lasting wardrobe staples. 
As for your feet, Kotn keeps it basic with their dress, crew, and sustainable ankle socks.

Kotn’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

If you know anything about Egyptian cotton, you might know that it’s a long fiber crop, which means it is not just super soft, but ultra high quality. Around 90% of cotton in the world is made of short fiber cotton, which is the reason behind the breakage, pilling, wrinkling, and fraying. 

Kotn’s Egyptian Giza “white gold” cotton (the main material in their ethical sustainable socks, t-shirts, and pajamas) is stronger and will last longer. It’s also hand-picked which puts less stress on both the fiber and the plant itself. It’s grown in nutrient-rich soils on farms that will be 100% certified organic within the next five years.

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. 

Beyond that, they do regular audits to ensure fair working conditions are maintained. They provide farming subsidies and practice equal opportunity employment.

Green business practices: 

Kotn’s Giza cotton is the rarest type of Egyptian cotton; it only grows 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, means less machine emissions, and more jobs.

Community & charitable giving: 

Partnering with a local Egyptian non-profit, Kotn is able to help prevent child labor in the area by providing employment opportunities for children, and in particular, girls.

About People Tree

Looking for sustainable socks in the UK?

People Tree will do more than cover your toe-wear. They’re an iconic sustainable fashion brand known for their eco-friendly dresses and t-shirts. 

Started in 1991 by designer Safia Minney, this was the first brand to be Fair Trade certified by the World Fair Trade Organization. Bear in mind that this was way before a market for sustainable fashion existed and before most people even realized that there were concerns in the fashion industry!

People Tree’s eco friendly fun socks (as seen in the photo) are also happily inexpensive eco friendly socks! A good option for those on a budget with a penchant for something green.

People Tree’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

All of their socks are made with organic certified cotton, with just a bit of elastane added for comfort and fit. The organic cotton is grown in a way that reduces its impact on the environment and helps to maintain soil fertility and build biologically diverse agriculture.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

In addition to their Fairtrade International certification, People Tree has also been certified GOTS by the Soil Association:

“These certifications guarantee People Tree’s dedication and compliance to the principles of fair trade, covering fair wages, good working conditions, transparency, environmental best practice and gender equality.”

In addition, natural materials are used where possible, and by sourcing traditional skills, the brand employs talented weavers, embroiderers, and knitters in areas where employment is scarce, namely Nepal and Bangladesh. Here they work with co-op organizations, complete with work-from-home opportunities and 90% of whom are also Fair Trade certified.

Green business practices: 

Aside from machine-minimal handcrafting, PT also prioritized closed-loop manufacturing processes.

Community & charitable giving: 

Through their People Tree Foundation, People Tree has partnered with BBC Earth to create a collection that draws attention to threatened species. They also have a foundation to help alleviate poverty in some of the communities they work with, joining them to create decent livelihoods through the promotion of Fair Trade. 

Like Pact, they have a give back box program where people can reuse their order box to send back unwanted clothing and household items to be donated to charity. They also have pop-up donation events where they donate a percentage of their profits directly to the producers they work with.  

Lastly, they donate to various grassroots environmental and conservation organizations.  Bombolulu, a Kenyan organization providing opportunities for Kenyans with physical disabilities, is but one example.

10. THOUGHT

About Thought

A UK brand with a global reach, Thought invites us all to think—think about the lifecycle of our clothes and how we can incorporate a “wear me, love me, mend me, pass me on” practice for our fashion favorites. 

The brand started back in the mid 90s, but didn’t actually open until the early 2000s (under the name Braintree Clothing). They’ve put some serious thought into their awesome range of loungewear, jackets, hoodies, sweaters, accessories, leggings, and much, much more. 

And for anyone trying to put a little thought into how stylish their feet are, Thought has an extensive range, including the most perfect eco friendly dress socks.

Thought’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

Their eco friendly organic socks are made from certified organic cotton, GOTS-certified recycled polyester, and around 2% elastane. Which provide anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties and are breathable, soft, and oh so cute. 

They also offer bamboo-derived viscose, but as they don’t specify whether it’s made via a closed-loop process, we don’t recommend these due to the numerous toxic chemicals that can be involved in this process.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

As Common Objective members, Thought is the next best thing to Fair Trade certified. They have a Code of Conduct that ensures that their Chinese partners conduct their operations in a way that the brand can be proud of. 

They also have an animal welfare policy and an environmental policy that minimizes their impact on land, water, the atmosphere, and the local environment; 95% of their collection (including all their vegan eco friendly socks) is PETA-approved.

Green business practices: 

While they do manufacture in China, they do so because it’s where a lot of their materials are sourced and thus allows them to keep a centralized, minimal-emission supply chain.

They use zero plastic packaging (98% of which is recyclable), 100% sea freight (to reduce emissions), vegan glue, biodegradable garment bags, and do what they can to reduce landfill contributions. 

Community & charitable giving: 

Through their efforts with Common Objective, they regularly donate extra stock to nonprofits in the UK like In Kind Direct, Smart Works, and Traid.

How We Chose 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.

You can learn more about our process in our sustainable and ethical fashion article, but here’s what we looked at:

Materials:

This was the first box for each brand to tick. Generally speaking, we looked for words like ‘organic,’ and ‘recycled.’ We love finding brands who keep our toes toasty with some of the same fabrics that made our list of the top 29 sustainable and ethical fabrics. These include TENCEL™Lyocell and ZQ Merino wool. 

However, even the best ethical socks differ from other fashion items that we’ve looked at because of their use of certain materials that are not so sustainable. To keep socks (especially ethical running socks or those of a more athletic bent) stretchy and moisture wicking, many brands use elastane and nylon. Hopefully, alternatives like Eco LYCRA® and Roica yarn will take the sock and sustainable activewear world by storm soon, but until then we’ll try to stick with brands who only use elastane and nylon at a minimum. 

Supply chain & labor practices:

We also looked at what the brands are doing from a social standpoint to care for the planet and their employees. Like employing fair labor practices, ensuring safe workplaces, living wages, protection from abuse and harassment, and general employee satisfaction. Many brands we love are Fair Trade certified or are certified B-Corps.

Green business practices:

Here is where we look at any other cool green-minded things a company has going on, such as carbon offsetting, plastic-free packaging, localized supply chains, garment repair or take-back programs, and zero waste manufacturing practices. 

Community & charitable giving:

While we didn’t find this in all of the brands listed here, we get twinkle toes over brands who are giving back in some way. Whether they’re environmental activists, do some extra work to support the communities that make their products, or find a way to keep clothing out of landfills, we’re on board for any way companies can use their profits and platforms in a positive way.


Final Thoughts On ON SUSTAINABLE SOCKS

Eco friendly Socks may not be the most stylish of fashion pieces but they are an essential part of any sustainable wardrobe.

Of course, it goes without saying, that sustainable fashionistas should only hop online and order a pair of these comfy ethical socks if / when we need them. 

Who knows, you may have the skills to darn those current holey’s but if you don’t and they’ve become more hole than sock and you’re wondering where to buy ethical socks—then put this list to good use and support brands trying to change the game!

What socks are you shuffling around in right now? Do you have any feet faves that we left off the list? Let us know!
