French lingerie brand Scandale launched in 1932 but was retired a decade ago. It's now making a comeback as Scandale éco-lingerie. That focus on sustainability includes using 80% recycled fabrics and 100% organic cotton. The brand also works with a limited number of fabrics and colors to make for easier mixing and matching, so that — in theory — an old bra will combine well with a new pair of panties.
Beyond environmental sustainability, Scandale also claims to be committed to fair labor practices and transparency. Each product is tagged with a QR code that customers can scan to learn about its environmental impact and about the factory where it was assembled and sewn.
