Dread laundry day? Your load is about to get lighter, thanks to this underwear from Organic Basics that doesn’t require washing after each wear.
Four Danish friends started the Copenhagen-based company. The goal was to create a 100% sustainable clothing line, and they did just that. It started as a Kickstarter campaign and earned enough to launch the brand. Now it has expanded to socks, towels, shirts, and - yes - men’s and women’s underwear.

We love an environmentally friendly company, but the underwear is what initially caught our attention. Boxers and panties that you don’t have to wash for weeks at a time? Just let that sink in. It seems very … dirty. But customer reviews are giving them a thumbs up.
They can take more than 80% less water to make compared to the virgin fabric and they produce 90% fewer CO2 emissions in production - recycled textiles also divert waste away from landfills. Not bad. ⠀ @chloe.kian

The Silvertech 2.0 underwear is made of recycled nylon and treated with polygiene silver, making it naturally anti-microbial and kills 99.9% of all bacteria and fungi “up in there.” This is the same process NASA uses to purify water in the International Space Station, so it has to be legit, right?
“Never wash your underwear again!” the Kickstarter description says. “Just kidding. But seriously, you won’t need to wash your underwear for weeks with our basics.”
Hmm, we might just have to take their word on that.
