FASHION: Sustainable Active Wear



As I'm getting ready to purchase some much needed active wear clothes, I decided to make a post about amazing brands that are using recycled materials, fair trading it, and using sustainable practices. I am so happy to see there are so many brands out there with great options and styles for every preference. 

Here, I am showcasing a few and I explain a little bit about each brand. I am actually dividing this post in two parts, the second part will most likely be published in January, since I know a lot of people will be looking into that as they begin the year with new resolutions. 

WE AR

We Ar makes uses organic cotton for their yoga wear. They also use other natural and environmentally friendly fibers such as bamboo, Tencel and Modal. They also work very closely to make sure their skilled artisans work in a safe environment and are also very focused on processes such as low impact dying and filtration of waste water. You can check more of their awesome clothes, and code of ethics (I found it really interesting) on their website
