Sustainable workout brands must find creative ways to create eco-friendly activewear clothing. 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 use only 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. It is particularly suitable for sustainably made workout clothes and swimwear.
Many brands are transparent about their pathway towards implementing sustainable initiatives into their way of working. Australian activewear brand P.E Nation announced that in 2020 half of its activewear range would be made from sustainable and recycled fabrics.
