Vegan Tank Tops in Eco-Friendly Organic Cotton, Recycled Polyester, and Tencel

Of the 326 million people in the U.S., about 19.5 million – or 6% – now identify with being vegan. The rise of veganism, not just in the U.S. but all over the world, has been a boon for animals, human health, and for our fight to mitigate climate change. Do you want to help keep that momentum going? One way is to spread the message with a vegan tank top! The vegan tank tops I feature here are extra cool because they’re made with organic cotton and other eco-friendly materials.

The Best Eco-Friendly Fabrics

Organic Cotton Tank Tops

As much as possible, on UniGuide, I try to feature the most eco-friendly versions of products within their respective categories that I can find. For example, I’ll always feature organic cotton products over commercial cotton, and recycled synthetics over those made with virgin materials. You can read about why organic cotton is better than commercial cotton, as well as why materials like recycled polyester are better than virgin polyester, in my posts about vegan t-shirts  and organic cotton and recycled hammocks.

I found some vegan tank tops that are made with organic cotton and rayon bamboo blends, but I chose not to include those here. While it’s sometimes marketed as “bamboo fabric,” the version of rayon that comes from bamboo cellulose has a pretty heavy environmental footprint. With rayon, very little of the original natural material fibers from the plants are left after a production process that utilizes a lot of polluting chemical and heavy metals.

Recycled Polyester and Tencel® Tank Tops

I do feature some vegan tank tops in this post that are made with other blended fabrics. For example, there are some eco-friendly tank tops made with organic cotton and recycled polyester, and others made with organic cotton and Tencel®.

Tencel is a quasi-natural/quasi-synthetic fabric that is actually environmentally friendly. It’s made with a cellulose that comes from non-GMO, organically-farmed, and non-old growth eucalyptus trees that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC.)

In addition, the solvents used in the production of Tencel get recycled. Tencel has other environmental certifications, including the Oeko Tex 100 textile certification, which means it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals. Furthermore, Tencel has been awarded with the European Award for the Environment by the EU.

Now, on to the tank tops!
