hi everyone
i al not yet at permaculture level but i am interested in getting there and learning more about it hence why i have joined the forum. i have recently become more aware of the damages we are doing our planet through what too many people see as everyday activities, not just ecologically but in terms of fair trade etc
so i have decided to start with myself, with my everday practices... i am overhauling my wardrobe, my cosmetics etc to evironmentally friendly, fair trade products only. and i am struggling with the basics...
i am unable to find 100% pure cotton fairtrade underwear, i seem to be able to find one or the other theres this http://www.ethicalsuperstore.com/search/panties/ or this http://www.twenga.com/price-ladies-cotton-panties.html
can anyone recommend a good brand? online shop? etc where i can find what im looking for (and ,aybe even beyond underwear and into clothing, although i am finding that easier)
i really hope you guys can help, i hope i am posting in the right place... apologies if not
please just let me know and il move it

I recently read something on reddit where a woman converted old t-shirts to underwear.  The way she talked, it was really fast and really easy.

reddit? what is that?
i could certainly do that actually, i have just had a shipment through of organic cotton fairtrade tshirts and it turns out i added ad a zero onto the end of my order with a slip of the hand! so i do have some spare, was going to sell them on but if i can put them to good use then thats great, meant to be i'd say!

Take pictures and post them here. 

I think it is even better if you are not a seamstress and it works!

I think pictures of just the panties with nobody in them will be fine.

The main thing is that this is, I think, a really smart way to recycle an old shirt.
