We’re of the belief that cute and comfortable athletic wear can make a significant difference to your workout. Looking put together in clothing that fits well can instill a sense of confidence and empowerment that can be precisely what you need to take your workout routine to the next level.
There are tons of athletic wear brands on the market to choose from, but we especially love to support the ones who create high-quality gear with sustainability in mind. From utilizing recycled materials to ensuring garment workers are paid a living wage, here are some of our favorite eco-friendly athletic brands:
Girlfriend comes out on top in pretty much every category of sustainability and ethical business practices. Their pieces are made with recycled materials and arrive in eco-friendly packaging, their workers are paid a living wage, and they offer some of the most inclusive sizing of any athletic wear brand we’ve found. We especially love their leggings, which are made with 25 recycled water bottles!
Patagonia has always put its money where its mouth is when it comes to sustainability. They actually go so far as to discourage consumers from purchasing too many of their products and promote the reuse and repair of Patagonia pieces over buying new ones.
Who said ethical activewear can’t look cool? Outdoor Voices is beloved by fitness enthusiasts and influencers with an interest in workout gear that looks as good as it feels. Their pieces are also made from recycled and sustainably sourced materials and workers are paid fair living wages.
