BPA Free

Products that are labeled as BPA free do not contain Bisphenol A, a chemical commonly found in plastic products. Studies on BPA exposure have shown that high levels of BPA could lead to hormone disruption, effects on behavior and brain function, reproductive problems, breast cancer, heart disease, infertility, and more.

Sustainable Manufacturing

Some or all of the energy used to make this product is produced via renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, or hydropower.

Safe and Fair Labor

This product does not contain any animal products or byproducts, and has not been tested on animals.


The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is a global independent certification system that regulates the use of harmful chemicals for yarns, fabrics, and finished textiles. Products with this certification meet rigorous environmentally friendly standards, as well as human-ecological health standards. OEKO-TEX® also creates standards based on the item’s proximity and sensitivity of the skin. For example, OEKO-TEX® holds baby clothing to a higher standard than an outer coat. For a product to earn this certification, all parts of the product must meet the criteria, including parts of clothing such as buttons, linings, threads, etc.


Low Impact Dyes

Companies can adopt multiple practices to dye their textiles and products in a more environmentally safe way. Low impact dyes usually do not contain toxins such as heavy metals, plasticizers, fluorocarbons, and formaldehyde. Sustainable dyes can also be water or plant based, or use less water than conventional dyeing methods.

Recycled PET Fabric

Recycled PET utilizes salvaged post-industrial PET scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers. These plastics are dried, crushed, and spun into yarn in order to create recycled PET fabric, or polyester. By providing a use for recycled plastics, companies encourage recycling programs worldwide, while adding new value to discarded items. Currently, over half of virgin PET production goes towards making textiles, so by utilizing recycled PET, post-consumer materials are both diverting waste while taking the place of raw materials. This helps to reduce the demand for the extraction of oil, as well as energy used to produce new synthetic fibers.

Recycled Content

Recycling is the process of taking an otherwise-discarded item or material and cleaning, sorting, and breaking it down into its basic form (such as fibers or pellets). This material is then used to produce new items. Recycling keeps useful materials from being discarded in landfills, prevents resource extraction due to the creation of new materials, and provides a new life for used items. Recycling can utilize both pre-consumer waste (materials left over from production) or post-consumer materials (used clothing, empty water bottles, etc). This product is made from recycled content.

    Too thin of material

    mkknapp (verified owner)

    I wanted to love these shorts so badly. I love the business motto and sustainability of Girlfriend Collective. When I took them out of the packaging, my first thought was, “OMG these are soft,” but I also noticed how thin the material seemed. That made me trepidatious. When I put the shorts on, my concerns were confirmed: you could see everything and I do mean everything. You could see too much in the front, there is no way you could wear underwear with these as you would even see thong lines, and any little imperfection in your body is on display. I will say, they were SUPER comfy and seemed like they would stay put while still having stretch. If I had gotten these in black . . . maybe the thinness of the material wouldn’t have been as much of an issue. And if the material were thicker, I would be keeping these and rating them a 5. But with that fabric – I would never feel comfortable enough to wear these around anyone else.
