SUSTAINABLE RECYCLED SOCKS: Can You Get Them In Switzerland?

In this article, I will introduce you to two sustainable Swiss brands that make sustainable recycled socks. What do I mean by sustainable recycled socks? First, they are made of organic and recycled materials as well as yarns which have a low environmental impact.

There are two sustainable Swiss brands whose socks I tried and keep wearing:

PASCALE CORNU (SWITZERLAND)
  • My all-time favorite sustainable Swiss brand which I have been supporting for more than 6 years,
  • socks are made of recycled cotton, polyamide, and polyethylene, and they are available in 3 colors,
  • comfortable and soft fit – I have a shoe size 42,5 EUR and I can wear size 40,
  • affordable (19 CHF), and they are made in France.

Watch my video to see sustainable recycled socks by Pascale Cornu “in action” (timestamp 02’25):


TEAL PROJECT (SWITZERLAND)
  • A start-up brand that offers sustainable socks which are made of recycled materials (77% of the materials is recycled),
  • produced in Europe and available in 3 colors,
  • tight but comfortable fit,
  • affordable (22CHF), carbon-neutral delivery, and free shipping over 40 CHF.

CONSCIOUS STEP (USA)

  • Fairtrade, organic (GOTS) and vegan certified premium socks.
  • they support various social causes with their profits.

ZKANO (USA)

  • organic cotton socks which are made in the USA,
  • they use low-impact, non-toxic dyes.

SWEDISH STOCKINGS (SWEDEN)

I discovered the brand during the COVID-19 quarantine. I like the fit but in the future, I will size up because I have long legs.

  • The quality is comparable to Wolford or Fogal,
  • the brand uses recycled materials,
  • they collect old nylon pantyhose and recycle/ upcycle them into tables,
  • their socks and stockings are chic and affordable.

ORGANIC BASICS (DENMARK)
  • They use natural, renewable, recycled, biodegradable and/ or low-impact textiles,
  • you can see the factories on the website,
  • their website is a “low impact”.

PACT (USA)
  • a friend of mine recommended their socks,
  • they are certified: organic cotton (GOTS), fair trade, ethically made.
