I'm looking for suggestions for ethical underwear and socks for kids. I usually buy clothes for my kids secondhand, but socks and underwear are the exceptions. Used ones aren't generally in good enough shape to buy. I've seen a few suggestions for women's undies, but I'm having trouble finding plastic-free ethical ones for my toddler. Just wanted to see if I have any options other than big box nonsense. Thanks in advance for suggestions!
Have you tried Frugi - their socks and pants are ethical and organic: http://www.welovefrugi.com/boy.....ks-3-pack/ and http://www.welovefrugi.com/boy.....fs-3-pack/ (not entirely sure if there is any plastic in there, you'd need to email them to check). Sorry for just linking to the boys stuff, they do have girls ones too!

Hanna Anderson makes organic cotton underwear for kids. There is some plastic packaging and the styling is not quite right for my very skinny kids. I think Under the Nile no longer makes underpants for kids. My girls are not toddlers anymore, but we've had some success with underpants from Just Fussy and Decent Exposures. organic cotton, no plastic packaging (might have been in a plastic mailer, but I can't remember) All have some elastic that is probably synthetic though. There were a couple places I looked online that only had up to 4T size, but I don't remember which those were.
