With the fashion industry being one of the most wasteful and unsustainable industries in the world, buying into sustainable brands with eco-initiatives has never been so important. If you’ve recently watched David Attenborough’s newly released documentary, ‘Life On Our Planet’, which shares his extremely poignant message and warning about the damage humans have inflicted on the earth, you’ll most likely be trying to make sustainable choices and swaps where possible. Our activewear is a great place to start because let’s face it, we live in it 24/7 right now!  From leggings made from recycled plastic bottles, trainers crafted from old shirts and yarn scraps, fishing nets transformed into sports bras, we’ve scouted out the brands creating sustainable activewear with as little environmental impact as possible. Not ok with cutting corners, these ethical brands are constantly developing innovative ideas for ways they can create beautiful, functional pieces with much less impact on the planet. While buying second hand or vintage is the ultimate, when it comes to activewear garments, sometimes buying new is the best option for hygiene reasons. Here are some stylish sustainable activewear looks for every occasion.
