Thinking about reducing waste in your life, including your wardrobe? If you are concerned about our environment and future generations then your thinking is on the right track.
By choosing sustainable brands you are helping to reduce waste while being kind to the earth. Most of us are basically living in workout gear, either because of the new work-life scenario, physical activity is on the agenda every day, or just for plain comfort! This might leave you feeling concerned about the quality of the clothing out there if you switch over to sustainable options. No need to worry! Sustainable brands focus on quality using materials that are meant to last which is a huge money saver and helps avoid the need to constantly buy workout apparel.
When selecting pieces you want to make sure they will perform the way you want them to and are truly ethically made. Here are few things to keep in mind:
- Quality should be able to hold up so look for comfort and moisture-wicking especially as the weather starts to warm up.
- You also want to pay attention and look out for specific certifications like Fair Trade, Ecocert, B-Corp, and Oeko-Tex 100.
