5 Organic Cotton Leggings And Yoga Pants For Everyday Wear
The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.
Leggings are our all-day comfort clothing staple, whether we’re on Zoom meetings (business up top, cozy down low), watching our favorite Netflix series, or staying grounded and focused with a living room flow.
We especially love these organic cotton yoga leggings made with minimal spandex or elastane (to help retain stretchiness and durability!). Organic cotton is nontoxic, and therefore free of harmful chemical treatments like PFAS. They’re all made by smaller businesses with ethical production practices and sustainable ethics. Snag yourself a pair and thank us later.
