The hot topic at the moment is the issue of fast fashion and sourcing sustainable clothing that doesn't compromise quality. With fast fashion, clothes are made cheaply and quickly resulting in an incredibly environmentally damaging industry.
So it’s time to think outside the box and find dependable activewear that won’t betray your ethics. The issue of fast fashion really has gained traction and has got us all thinking more before purchasing.
Where was it made?
How was it made?
Were the workers treated fairly?
Will this fabric stand the test of our workouts?
These are all important questions to consider when investing in gear. Back in the day, getting your mitts on sustainable, ethical activewear cost a small fortune... but thankfully a great change is sweeping fitness brands. A change that’s got us excited.
From recycled bottles utilised in production to cruelty-free fabrics, activewear is becoming more responsible… and affordable! Hallelujah.
