As this is primarily a user-to-user support forum, I don't know as anyone here will be able to answer your question.

I'd suggest using the "contact us" link in store.lds.org.
Have you searched the Help Center? Try doing a Google search and adding "site:churchofjesuschrist.org/help" to the search criteria.

I didn't even realize the church provided biodegradable ceremonial clothing, but I took a look at the site and see that they do. I would also wonder if they make biodegradable garments? I couldn't find those on the list. 100% cotton should be, but I don't know about the elastic waistband?

As for the white clothing: The church does list a biodegradable hat.
For socks, shirts, pants, and ties: You might be able to find an alternate supplier of these items. Also consider that I don't think these clothing articles are "required," as they are not part of any temple ceremonies.

I agree with russellhltn about contacting the store to see if you can find out more. They might also be able to provide some guidance on the size. Looking at the page, I'm not sure what they're measuring.

If you are trying to work through any regulations/laws and having a difficult time finding what you need, your bishop/branch president should be able to provide guidance (that individual might need to ask up the chain of command to get answers).
