The holiday season is fast approaching, and with it the temptation to eat every dessert in sight, and put off your gym visits for a week or two. Why not motivate yourself to stick to your routine, and focus on staying strong and healthy, by investing in new sportswear that not only looks incredible, but is also good for the planet? Here are our three favorite sustainable sportswear brands that you can invest in right now:
Italian sustainable brand Lido have dropped their first ever activewear collection, and it looks so good you’ll wish you could wear it anywhere. Offering chic silhouettes and four-way stretch technology, the collection utilizes the brand’s trademark colorways: “Asphalt Grey & High Vis,” “Olive & Aquamarine” and “Terracotta & Red.” The collection has been designed with both high and low impact activities in mind, making it suitable for everyone. The pieces range from between 110 euros and 150 euros and can be purchased directly from the Lido website. With pieces like this in your closet, you’ll never want to skip your morning run again!
Not only is the sportswear made by Milan-based brand Licia Florio sustainable, it is also manufactured in Milan, minimalizing the carbon footprint of the brand considerably. The products are made from 100% recycled yarn, which is very usual in pieces with such high stretch, and the collection makes use of feminine, muted shades in classic shapes, lending a laid back and luxe feel. With prices starting from 50 euros, you can shop the collection here.
What makes Tala stand out from the crowd is that their comfortable and colorful activewear collections have been designed to suit women of all body shapes. At this point, the products they offer are constructed using 92% recycled materials, but the brand has aspirations to increase this to 100% in the near-future. We love their supportive bra tops, and their delicate paper packaging, which is 100% recyclable. Shop at wearetala.com
