Sustainable Yoga Clothes: 9 Brands Promising An Eco-Friendly Flow

Amber McDaniel

Out of all sports, none complement sustainability quite as well as yoga does—meaning doing it in sustainable yoga clothes can help preserve the harmony of your practice.

Yoga, which means “union”, exemplifies the connection between humans and the natural world, connecting with our breath and our bodies and promoting healthy lifestyle choices.

But what about our choice of popular yoga clothing brands? Are yoga clothes sustainable?

Unfortunately, that’s where yoga gets a little less in-tune with nature, but just like yoga poses get a little easier with each class, eco-friendly yoga clothing is getting easier to find, too.

Everything we recommend to you on Sustainable Jungle is independently researched and we ask all brands to confirm their claims. To avoid waste, we test products on an as needed basis. This post contains affiliate links. If you buy something through our links, we may earn a small commission. Learn more about why we do this here.

The Most Sustainable Yoga Brands To Help You Nama-Stay Sustainable

With sustainable yoga clothing brands like Girlfriend Collective—whose range fits all bodies—we’re opening the market’s ethical chakra.

tentree isn’t just unique because they plant a whopping ten trees per product—they also offer some of the best eco-friendly men’s yoga clothes, with a wide selection of joggers and tops.

Our list of sustainable yoga leggings definitely wouldn’t be complete without Definite Article’s innovative CiCLO nylon technology that helps these squat-proof eco yoga pants biodegrade naturally.

Roll out your eco-friendly yoga mat, focus on your ujjayi breathing, and make your way to the end of the article to see how we extended through our spine to find these recycled or organic yoga clothes.

The Full List Of Sustainable Yoga Wear Brands

1. Mukha Yoga

About Mukha Yoga

Price Range: $42–$118

“Do Yoga, Save the Planet” is Mukha Yoga’s motto.

They’re doing their part by offering mats, props, and clothing from the best sustainable yoga clothing brands like prAna, Manduka, and more.

Their selection of affordable sustainable yoga clothes is vast, with tanks, bra tops, sustainable bike shorts, and eco yoga pants.

To make it fun and flirty, we tried out the Fauna Keyhole Top, which we love not only because of its super supportive design, but because it’s reversible—so it’s like getting two pieces of eco-friendly yoga wear for one!

If you like flowy garb for your flow, they also have sweats and slouch tops for both men and women.

Mukha Yoga’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


Common things you’ll find include: closed-loop organic bamboo viscose, recycled materials, TENCEL™, modal fabric, and organic cotton yoga clothing,

Some garments appear to be primarily (if not entirely) made of virgin synthetic like polyamide and spandex, so check the specs for a full fabric percentage breakdown.

You’ll find non-toxic inks (especially in their stellar collection of printed yoga leggings) and bluesign®-approved eco-friendly fabrics, assuring a safe practice in toxin-free yoga clothes.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Mukha Yoga handpicks all vendors, or “partners” as they proudly call them.

Each product description will tell you a little bit about their manufacturing, whether Fair Trade certified, sustainable yoga clothes made in the USA, or other ethical practices.

Carbon commitments & green practices:

A large percentage of their partners are located on the West Coast where Mukha’s fulfillment centers are, which minimizes transportation emissions.

Plastic free packaging, sponsored tree-planting campaigns, and joining prAna’s #ReshapePackaging movement are other ways Mukha is mindful of its carbon footprint.


XS-XL sizes are available for men and women.

However, because they are a retailer of other sustainable yoga brands, sizes range varies by style. To avoid that heartbreak, you can filter by size.

Community & charitable giving:

By providing their community with yoga tips, guided meditations, and healthy recipes (all for free), Mukha breaks down the sometimes-hefty cost-entry barrier into healthy mindful living.

2. Girlfriend Collective

About Girlfriend Collective

Price Range: $28–$126

Girlfriend Collective is a killer sustainable activewear brand if you want killer core muscles, no matter your size.

This size, image, and budget inclusive brand is all about making fitness fabulous for everyone.

Their range includes recycled yoga pants and leggings, shorts, sweats, unitards, tanks, sports bras, t-shirts, and a small selection of men’s clothing.

Don’t forget the top layers. Their ReSet Hoodie keeps your muscles warm until you’re limbered up and do so using recycled materials.

Plus, with how buttery soft it is, we almost hate to reach that point of having to shed the layer!

Girlfriend’s rewards program and budget-mindedness puts them among the most affordable yoga clothing brands, too.

Girlfriend Collective’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


Collectively, Girlfriend’s fabrics are simple, almost entirely consisting of OEKO-TEX-certified recycled polyester.

Or if you prefer to flow in eco-friendly sweatpants, you’ll do so in Texloop RCOT™ recycled cotton and organic cotton.

They use sustainable dyes for all yoga apparel.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

The recycled plastic bottles are turned into a fabric at a factory in Taiwan.

These recycled fabrics then take a short boat ride to Vietnam for garment production in an SA8000-certified factory. 

Carbon commitments & green practices:

If you have an old Girlfriend piece you no longer wear, ReGirlfriend (AKA recycle) it in exchange for $15 credit.

They recycle all water used in fabric dyeing (in a facility 100 feet away so no dangerous transportation) and donate the residual dye mud to a local pavement facility to become sidewalks and roads.

All packaging is 100% recycled and reusable.


Everyone can comfortably down dog in Girlfriend Collective’s XXS–6XL size range.

Community & charitable giving:

Girlfriend donates to causes they believe in, like social justice organizations.

They also sometimes donate to causes you believe in. Be on the lookout for rotating campaigns that donate ~5% of sales to a charity of your choosing.

3. Tree Tribe

About Tree Tribe

Price Range: $23–$60

Tree-t yourself to some Tree Tribe and their selection of some of the most fun (and affordable) sustainable printed yoga pants around.

It’s no secret that we’re desert rats at heart, so we had to go with the lovely Sandstone sustainable yoga leggings.

We prefer a high waist, but you can also select a normal rise. With the ultra stretchy fabric and comfortable flatlock stitching, there’s no chafing, even when attempting the most precarious of poses.

In addition to yoga leggings, shorts, sports bras, tees, tanks, and hoodies, they also sell completely plastic-free water bottles, so you can stay hydrated during your hot yoga class.

Tree Tribe’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


Their sustainable yoga pants are made with upcycled polyester blended with spandex.

The huge selection of lovely prints are thanks to a sublimation printing process that heat infuses the fabric with water-based inks that won’t fade or peel over time.

Their hoodies feature a blend of 50% cotton and 50% poly fleece. Since these fabrics aren’t all that sustainable, we would stick to their ethical yoga pants and sports bras.

Their tees use a more sustainable USA-grown Supima cotton, but we’re not sure if it’s organic cotton.

Supply chain & labor practices:

All Tree Tribe ethical yoga clothes are handmade in the USA.


Eco-friendly yoga pants and shorts run XS–XL and hoodies XS–2XL.

Community & charitable giving:

For every product ordered, they plant a tree, totaling almost 500K across the globe.

tentree is a top-notch organic clothing brand that puts our planet first—while still keeping us comfortably clothed.

Achieve any asana in tentree’s leggings, joggers, t-shirts, and shorts for both men and women.

If sustainable flare yoga pants are your fave to frog pose in, the InMotion Cropped Wide Leg Pant provides unmatched moveability and breathability.

tentree’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


tentree’s wide use of eco-friendly fabrics mean you’ll find organic yoga wear (organic cotton, TENCEL lyocell fabric, and hemp) and recycled yoga clothes (rPET) alike.

However, even for their natural yoga clothes, a bit of elastane (usually around 20%) is blended in.

Supply chain & labor practices:

tentree has a factory ledger that provides specific details about their factories and a strict code of conduct prohibiting forced labor, child labor, harassment, excessive work hours, and more.

This Certified B Corp’s manufacturing partners are certified by WRAP, BSCI, SA8000, and the Fair Wear Foundation. 

Carbon commitments & green practices:

This sustainable yoga brand displays the reduced carbon footprint it has in terms of waste, carbon dioxide emissions, and water usage (compared to that of similar traditionally-made garments). 

You can also purchase carbon offsets directly from their website. 


XS–XL sizes are available in most, with some up to XXL.

Community & charitable giving:

tentree plants ten trees for every purchase, specifically in areas that regularly suffer from biodiversity loss

By 2030, they should have one billion trees planted!

5. Boody

About Boody

Price Range: $44–$99

Nothing relaxes us in balasana more than wearing organic bamboo yoga clothes by Boody.

They started out making some of the most eco-friendly yoga clothes Australia has, but quickly amassed a global base of customers and now have an American branch.

From loose fit garb like the Weekend Crew Pullover and joggers, to more form-fitting leggings, sports bras, and bodysuits, Boody has something for everybo(o)dy.

Boody’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


Sustainably and organically grown bamboo (with a touch of spandex) will keep you comfortable—even when attempting something as bamboozling to your balance as Eagle Pose. 

Bamboo fabric is commonly made to sound more sustainable than it is, due to the tremendous amount of toxic chemicals and water used during manufacturing.

Ain’t no Boody got time for that! A closed-loop system recaptures all water and non-toxic solvents used to create their organic yoga pants. 

FSC, Ecocert, and OEKO-TEX certifications and SGS testing for toxicity reassure us that this bamboo is actually eco-friendly.

Supply chain & labor practices:

Boody partners with manufacturers who are at minimum ISO-14001, ISO-9001, and WRAP compliant—meaning your new ethical yoga clothing isn’t associated with forced/child labor or abuse of garment workers.

Carbon commitments & green practices:

Boody uses recycled packaging materials and plant-based ink. 

Their textile recycling program allows you to recycle old clothes (from absolutely any brand!) you no longer want.


XS–XL sizes are available, with sustainable sports bras up to 38D or 40C cups.

Their eco-friendly men’s yoga clothes run S–XL.

Community & charitable giving:

Boody donates a portion of their profits via 1% for the Planet, as well as to other non-environmental charities like Thread Together.

Also available on Boody (AU)

About prAna

Price Range: $35–$140

Prana (a.k.a. breath) is considered a life-giving force in yoga, so it’s only natural prAna is breathing new life into mainstream fair trade yoga pants, bra tops, tanks, sport bras, sweatshirts, t-shirts, and more.

This sustainable outdoor clothing brand has everything from rain wear to rock climbing clothing to post-hike Hatha garb.

Garments are designed for elegance and efficiency, as well as performance, like the Becksa™ Unitard that’s an all-in-one yoga outfit.

Not only can we confirm that it’s SUPER comfortable, but the elegant cutout back makes us feel confident and sexy—even as we’re falling over out of eagle pose.

prAna’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


prAna’s sustainable yoga wear uses recycled polyester, TENCEL modal, and organic materials (i.e. organic cotton and hemp fabric).

As a bluesign® systems partner, you know you’re getting non-toxic yoga pants, too.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

As a member of the Textile Exchange, prAna prioritizes fair trade factories when possible and pays into fair trade premium worker funds.

They’ve helped 11 factories obtain Fair Trade certification and are working toward having all products made in a Fair Trade-certified factory.

Carbon commitments & green practices: 

A founding member of the OIA Climate Action Corps, prAna is working to reduce their emissions output by 30%.

Via the Renewal Workshop, they diverted 56,000 pounds of garment waste from landfills between 2016 and 2021.

They also started the Responsible Packaging Movement, through which they aimed to (and achieved) eliminate all plastic from consumer packaging.


Women’s sustainable fair trade yoga clothes run XXS–XXL, with a select extended size collection of 1X–3X styles. 

Men’s sizes XS–XXXL.

Community & charitable giving:

prAna’s chosen charitable partner is Outdoor Outreach, helping disenfranchised youth get outside and have adventure opportunities they otherwise would not.

7. Manduka

About Manduka

Price Range: $45–$158

Manduka can take care of everything you need for your morning yoga flow.

They’re big in the yoga mat world but dabble in apparel too, whether you’re seeking hot yoga eco-friendly clothes or clothes for those who don’t find 100+ degree temps very zen.

They have eco yoga clothes for both men and women, including shorts, pants, tanks, tops, jackets, bras, headbands, and more.

Not everything features sustainable fabrics, but if you’re looking for sustainable leggings, start by checking out the printed Essence Legging.

Manduka’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


Like their sustainable yoga props made of cork or recycled materials, Manduka’s OEKO-TEX-certified recycled synthetics and organic cotton are kind to both our bodies and the Earth.

However, a lot of their clothing still uses virgin synthetics, so read the descriptions carefully to choose sustainable fabrics.

Supply chain & labor practices:

We know Manduka doesn’t source the rubber used in their yoga mats from the Amazon.

Unfortunately, they don’t elaborate on manufacturing practices for their recycled and organic yoga clothes, and they’ve yet to respond to our direct inquiries.

Carbon commitments & green practices:

Most of Manduka’s green actions involve their mats, like the eKO mats made with zero waste and PRO series with zero-emissions.

They recycle all post-industrial scraps, repair damaged mats, and have a LiveOn program to turn old yoga mats from any brand into materials like home insulation via The Renewable Workshop.


Women’s garments come in XS–XL and men’s S–XL.

About Definite Articles

Price Range: $39–$78

Definite Articles recognizes a hard truth many of the top yoga brands refuse to: 

“Recycled plastic doesn’t solve the problem. It’s still plastic.”

That’s why their kids’, men’s, and women’s sustainable yoga clothing contains a natural additive that makes the synthetic fibers biodegrade in years, not centuries.

If you think that sounds like greenwashing, don’t worry we did, too—at first.

But lab tests by ASTM certify their products as biodegradable in landfills (ASTM 5511), soil (ASTM 5988), and seawater (ASTM 6691).

We tested out a few of their products, but the Trimline ⅞ Legging is definitely a favorite. We love the smooth, non-pinching feel of the high and wide contoured waist—and that we can confidently crow pose without flashing our panties to the mat behind us!

For our gentlemen readers out there, we also highly recommend the Tor Short with Liner. It’s easily the most comfortable lined shorts we’ve ever worn, providing support and compression—without too much compression where you don’t want it!

Definite Articles’ Ethical & Sustainability Practices


CiCLO is this brand’s patented claim to fame. It’s an innovative technology that takes their synthetic fibers (both recycled and virgin) and helps them biodegrade at a much quicker pace.

CiCLO nylon and recycled polyester will achieve 75-92% biodegradation in less than 2.5 years— compared to <4% biodegradation for the conventional forms of these synthetic fabrics.

Note: this does NOT mean the eco yoga clothing can be composted. Biodegradable and compostable mean different things.

Across their product line, they use 23% BCI cotton, 23% CiCLO recycled polyester, 51% CiCLO nylon, and 3% spandex.

Supply chain & labor practices:

This Certified B Corp is dedicated to keeping their entire supply chain within the Americas, leading to greater traceability and fewer transportation emissions.

Their Supplier Code of Conduct works to ensure all workers are treated and paid fairly.

Carbon commitments & green practices:

Their sustainable yoga clithing ships from a carbon-neutral fulfillment center.


Women’s sustainable yoga pants and tops run XS-XL, but the hyper stretchy fabric means each size accommodates a range of sizes (up to women’s 18).

You’ll find men’s eco-friendly yoga clothes in S-XXL.

Community & charitable giving:

Through their partnership with One Tree Planted, Definite Articles has so far planted over 1,000 trees in Oregon—and “we’re just getting started”.

They donate 2% of annual revenue to environmental causes and nonprofits.

About Humans Being

Price Range: £45–£110

If you like to do your sun salutations in simple sustainable yoga clothes, UK brand Humans Being is there to encourage your movement, in whatever feels good to you:

“We don’t champion unachievable goals or unattainable bodies, we simply celebrate the beauty and gift of movement.”

Their collection of eco yoga clothing for women isn’t huge, but does include all the essentials, like cycling shorts, sweatshirts, joggers, bra tops, cropped tees, and “squat-proof” sustainable yoga pants.

Or outfit yourself with just one do-it-all garment via their 360 Performance Bodysuit.

Humans Being’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


Any skin-tight items feature a 4-way stretch fabric made of either 74% post-consumer GRS-certified recycled polyester and 24% Lycra spandex, or Antex, a zero waste fabric created by recycling their own garments.

They are working with fabric specialists to come up with recycled solutions for the current non-recycled spandex components.

For organic yoga clothing, their looser fitting garments are made of 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Humans Being has a traceable supply chain and manufactures in SMETA-approved facilities.

Carbon commitments & green practices:

To recycle on-brand eco-friendly yoga clothes, UK customers can send them back for a 10% discount. The clothes will become new ones through Reskinned.

Garments ship in recycled sustainable packaging.


Women’s sustainable yoga clothing runs XS-XXL.

Community & charitable giving:

Part of every purchase goes directly to the Humans Being Foundation, through which they work with the World Land Trust to protect rainforest land.

How We Found The Best Eco-Friendly Yoga Clothes

Alongside comfort and flexibility, there’s likely no more desirable trait for activewear than eco-friendly materials AND eco-friendly practices that protect our planet and the people in it.

We use our sustainable fashion criteria to sustainably savasana and fill our minds with peaceful thoughts—not guilt.

After all, we want sustainable yoga clothing brands (and non-toxic yoga mats) that won’t contribute to making the planet hot.


Plant-based materials are best for guru Gaia, and while we hope to see more exclusively organic yoga clothing brands in the future, for now, recycled synthetics are still the most common.

Unfortunately, spandex/elastane is still pretty unavoidable in a sport that demands your clothing stretches with you, and we simply don’t have a recycled eco-friendly alternative for this yet.

Still, we tried to find sustainable leggings that kept these virgin synthetic percentages to a minimum, and utilized earth-safe dyes.

Supply chain & labor practices:

Our heart chakras were happy to see specific supply chain details shared (factory info, codes of conduct, etc.) along with certifications to back them up.

But greenwashing is sneaky and even the best certifiers (like B Corp) can be guilty of it, so take a deep breath and ask the important questions and seek transparency.

Carbon commitments & green practices:

Brands can also make our favorite wardrobe essential (AKA yoga pants) eco-friendly through other actions that lighten their impact.

These include carbon offset programs, practices to reduce waste, sustainable materials for packaging, closed-loop production, and small-batch manufacturing. 


Sustainable plus size fashion isn’t just for non-athletic garb so we looked for a range of sizes.

Community & charitable giving:

You might personally prefer a private yoga session in the comfort of your own home, but yoga is about community. 

We’re thrilled to see brands supporting things like tree planting, donations to organizations, and free yoga classes for disenfranchised communities.

Final Thoughts On The Best Sustainable Yoga Clothes

We can’t help you achieve that perfect headstand, but we can help you attempt it in clothes that won’t break our planet’s neck. 

The most sustainable practice means wearing clothing that already exists, so we encourage you to first opt for used options from online thrift stores for your Uttanasana.

But if yoga wear feels too personal for pre-loved, let this eco yoga clothing help you out.

Just remember: unless you’re donning some of the best organic yoga clothes, recycled options still contribute to microplastic pollution, so always use a Guppy Friend Bag when washing.

If you overhear your yoga classmates complaining about the wedgie their leggings keep giving them, pass along this list of sustainable yoga clothing brands.

Namaste, friends.
