It's Plastic-Free July!

It’s plastic-free July! 

Plastic has found its way into just about everything these days - especially textiles. Synthetic-blended fabrics leach microplastics into our water supplies, our food chains, and then into our bodies. It is estimated that we ingest one credit card’s worth of plastic a week.

Plastic-Free July is a global movement that encourages individuals to refuse as much plastic (especially single-use plastics) and seek sustainable alternatives. Learn more from the creators here. At The Big Favorite, we fully support this initiative and want to make it easier for everyone to participate. Throughout the month of July, we will be sharing valuable tips and resources to help you reduce your plastic consumption in simple yet impactful ways. From practical suggestions for everyday life to highlighting the environmental benefits of a plastic-free lifestyle, we aim to empower individuals to make a positive change. 

Reducing our plastic use has become increasingly vital in today's world. Plastic is practically omnipresent, making it a real challenge to escape its clutches. Everywhere we turn, we are confronted with the undeniable reality of the constant reliance on plastic. The next month is dedicated to discovering smaller changes we can make that add to a larger difference in not just the waste accumulated but our overall plastic consumption that ends up inside our bodies.

At The Big Favorite, we've gone the extra mile and removed every last bit of plastic and synthetic fibers from our fabrics. Say hello to undergarments that are not only super comfy but also guilt-free! We've worked our creative magic by using 100% Pima Cotton combined with 1x1 Ribs, Interlocks, and Jerseys to give you the perfect structure and stretch for each piece.
