Great Sustainable Activewear to Add to Your Workout Regime
Brands are becoming incredibly creative at finding ways to create sustainable activewear. A lot of thought goes into the choice of materials used for the lowest impact on our planet. Using organic cotton is one of the easiest ways to do that. Sustainable activewear brands, like MICHI, use independent initiatives like BLUESIGN to ensure they are using responsible and sustainably manufactured textiles.
Adidas By Stella McCartney is incorporating innovative recycled materials, like nylon and polyester, into half of its range. ECONYL™ regenerated nylon, invented in Italy, is a pioneering regeneration process that is an exciting addition to the pool of sustainable textile options for brands making yoga pants and swimwear.
