Our sustainable activewear is made with recycled fabrics, removing plastic from landfills and oceans around the world and turning it into high quality garments. The recycled fibers we utilize in our activewear fabrics are REPREVE (recycled polyester) and ECONYL (recycled nylon).
REPREVE is the world’s number one brand of recycled performance polyester fiber. Our high-quality fibers are made from 100% recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and pre-consumer waste. They are also certified and traceable. REPREVE diverts plastic bottles—billions of them—from landfills and oceans. We also collect and reuse industrial waste. Compared to virgin polyester, REPREVE helps to offset the use of petroleum, emitting fewer greenhouse gases and conserving water and energy in the process.
ECONYL regenerated nylon originates from old fishing nets and carpets. Fishing nets are one of the ocean's biggest polluters, making up 46% of the ocean waste in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. As well as being a solution on waste, ECONYL regenerated nylon is also better when it comes to climate change. It reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 90% compared with the material from oil. This nylon has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality.
Because “sustainable” means different things to different people, Repreve and Econyl have also received the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification, a well-known international eco-label. Oeko-Tex offers “Confidence in Textiles,” qualifying that our yarns are tested to be free of harmful levels of more than 100 restricted chemicals. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is the world’s leading label for textiles screened for harmful substances.
Our sustainable activewear ships in eco-conscious packaging including certified home compostable mailers and individual item bags.
SMALL BATCH PRODUCTION
In an effort to be gentle on the Earth, our sustainable activewear is made with intention in small batches, avoiding overproduction of excess items that don’t get sold and end up in landfills or burned.
