Want to look after your wellness while also looking after the planet?

Have a look at the eco-friendly activewear brands that we have specially curated for you.

Due to the rising use of polyester in most activewear, finding eco activewear is more difficult than it is thought to be. 

All the eco-friendly and sustainable yoga wear brands we've compiled here use sustainable materials and manufacturing methods. These eco-friendly activewear brands ensure that your workouts are productive for both you and the planet.

These sustainable activewear brands are doing their share to provide customers with high-performance sportswear while safeguarding both the population and the environment, by using fair trade and ethical labor policies and natural and recycled materials. Let us know which ones are your favorites!

Before reading about these eco-friendly activewear brands, let’s have a quick look at the reason behind the rise of these sustainable clothing brands.

Eco-Friendly and Yoga Activewear Brands

The Rise of Sustainable Activewear Brands

These eco-friendly activewear brands may have been latecomers to the sustainable fashion trend. But it isn’t long before they become household brands.

Not surprisingly, the pair of leggings or yoga pants that you prefer aren't always good for the environment. Leggings are often made of dangerous synthetic fabrics such as polyester, nylon, or lycra, and are worn for everything from working out to going for a coffee.

Synthetic fibers are manufactured from fossil fuels and consume significantly more energy than natural fibers. Also, they are non-biodegradable due to their synthetic origin and may take over 200 years to decompose, if at all.

When these synthetics are washed, microfibres or tiny plastic particles are released into the water. These microfibres then find their way into the ocean, where they are ingested by fish and ultimately consumed by us, humans. To put it another way, if you wear non-eco-friendly fabrics and eat fish, you're ultimately likely to ingest dangerous microplastics yourself!

Polyester, a petroleum-based material, is the same material used to make plastic water bottles. Polyester's wrinkle-resistant property, durability, and drying efficiency are just a few of the reasons that it's a favorite fabric among many fitness brands. Unfortunately, it comes at the expense of the environment.

Seeing the environmental conditions worsen, some brands took a step towards protecting the environment and moved ahead with manufacturing eco-friendly activewear clothing.
