9 Clothing Brands that Support the Environment and You

Eco friendly workout clothes

Our lives are filled with purchases, whether it’s groceries, gifts, necessities, or clothing items. This time of year, many of us are hitting the store to get back-to-school clothes, new backpacks, water bottles, and snacks for before and after school. Some of us are buying celebratory bottles of champagne to celebrate the quiet household, but that’s a story for a different day. Another perk of getting the kids back to school is that we can get back to our daily routines; a key component of that is a daily workout. Whether you love hitting the gym, joining a group bike ride on an internet-connected bike, or just taking a brisk walk through the neighborhood, you want to wear clothing that is comfortable and supportive.

As we search for the latest styles and seasonal fashions in workout wear, it’s nice to know that we’re also supporting businesses that have made it a priority to focus on and work to be environmentally friendly. It’s easier if you know the brands that are at the top of their game regarding Earth-friendly practices, from being fair-trade certified to using recyclable materials to simply ensuring their employees are respected and cared for while working a shift.

So we did the easy part: we compiled a list of our favorite eco-friendly workout brands. Now, all you have to do is find clothing items you like, get them on hand, and get your sweat on.
