Soy Undies!

Soy Undies!

Yes it’s true. Underwear made from soy beans. What will us brilliant humans think of next?!!


The very cheekily named Miami-based Uranus Apparel is a new eco-friendly company that has just launched its line of soy underwear for women. Soy is a fantastic alternative fabric choice because it is manufactured from the by-products of soy food production like tofu and soybean oil. This process uses materials that would otherwise be considered waste, thus “closing the loop” on soy. Besides contributing to a more sustainable planet, soy fabric is also extremely soft and comfortable, often being compared to silk or cashmere. It is also more durable and dries more quickly than cotton.
