Wolford Aurora Collection
In 2018 world-renowned hosiery brand, Wolford created their own sustainable collection which combines classic, sleek silhouettes with eco-friendly fabrics. The entire Aurora collection is Cradle to Cradle Certified™ meaning it is an exemplary product in making a positive impact on the planet. What’s unique about the Aurora collection is that all of the components in the fabric are completely biodegradable. Wolford asks that all of the Aurora collection, once they’re reached the end of their lifespan in your wardrobe, are brought back to store where they can break up the components for recycling. The clothes themselves will be composted into biogas and used to fuel factories while the yarn is reused to create another Aurora collection. From sleeveless tank tops and polo necks to fitted dresses and leggings, you can expect all the premium quality of a Wolford product with an eco-friendly twist.

Innovative, comfortable and classically elegant, the collection focused on delivering a premium product to a new-era responsible customer base. Certified a Gold Level Material Health Certificate by Cradle-to-Cradle Product Innovation Institute, Sarah Borghi’s Green Collection is a must for any eco-conscious customers investing in hosiery for now and the future.

MAC Protect our Planet Campaign
MAC Dream Jeans are a best-seller at Luxury Legs year after year. Available in so many shades and fits there is a pair for every woman and every occasion. It’s no secret that denim is one of the most unsustainable fabrics to manufacture due to the amount of water needed in the process. To combat this issue, MAC created their Protect our Planet campaign which enables the brand to mass produce jeans using a significantly lower amount of water than traditional methods. In addition to this, they also filter and dispose of the water used which contains chemicals and toxins which cause pollution. MACs aim and ethos as a brand is to completely eliminate the production techniques which are harmful to the planet. Thanks to this determination you can rest assured that when you invest in a pair of their jeans you are investing in the future.
