Getting in the best shape of your life is always a goal. But, let’s be honest, not the easiest goal to achieve in a short amount of time. Making that mental commitment is probably the biggest work. And, bodies can change as a result of high stress levels and uncertain work environments, so we need to chill and say “it’s OKAY”. Instead, FEELING your best should be a top priority. However you choose a workout routine, committing to more exercise is a wonderful for your physical and mental health. In our Hey Social Good style, we’re making it easy for you by highlighting our Best 24 sustainable workout clothes and gear! Sometimes, just getting into your workout clothes inspires you to move.
We know how important it is to have a healthy routine, especially when stuck inside. Even without the gym, there are many ways to keep our minds and bodies active. Consider active YouTube yoga, restorative slow yoga, a social distanced jog around your neighborhood (nothing says social distance like physically running away from your neighbors), or using this opportunity to try something new like living room tai chi!
The most common fabrics used to make workout clothes, such as yoga pants, are fabrics like polyester or nylon. Why? Well, they’re essentially waterproof and cheap. Unfortunately, “Nylon manufacturing creates nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas 310 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Making polyester uses large amounts of water for cooling, along with lubricants which can become a source of contamination. Both processes are also very energy-hungry.” Yikes!
Instead, seek out athletic gear made from more sustainable fabrics, such as Tencel, organic cotton, or recycled polyester. Recycled polyester is a more sustainable option because we are reusing our materials instead of sending them to waste. Often, recycled polyester is created from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles or other items like old fishing nets that have been pelletized, reworked and then sewn into fabric materials. Yeah, we think that’s super cool!
From workout clothes to rock climbing gear to water bottles, we’ve listed everything you’ll love to start your 2021 exercise journey. Take good care of your health, and the planet by choosing the sustainable options. Go ahead, dig in to our Best 24 Sustainable Work Out Clothes and Gear!
