About Organic Basics

This hilariously inspiring Danish company started with men’s undies but have since expanded to women’s intimates, sleepwear, socks, and activewear. 

Organic Basics have an impressive range of sustainability initiatives (worth a read on their website) including making clothing that is actually built to last, a focus on “natural, renewable, recycled, biodegradable and or low-impact textiles only”

Organic Basics’ Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

Really cool stuff here. To make their garments long-lasting and in need of less frequent washing (washing and drying accounts for 2/3 of clothing’s environmental impact), they spin it with real sustainably-sourced silver.

Sounds scary, but this well-tested EPA and Reach Act-compliant and Oeko-Tex 100-certified silver thread is spun in mere trace amounts with USB and GOTS-certified organic cotton to create SilverTech. It also features a bluesign® approved recycled silver salt called Polygiene®

What’s the benefit? Other than the fact that you can say there’s silver in your activewear, it’s heat-regulating anti-bacterial, and odor-controlling.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

OB definitely gets the award for workplace transparency. You can check out an exact numerical breakdown (vacation days, hours worked, etc.) for every one of their factories.

They personally visit these factories and regularly sit down with workers to ensure job condition satisfaction. Finally, they’re BSCI-compliant and a member of Sedex, a non-profit that empowers ethical supply chains.

Green business practices: 

Sustainable shipping is possible with OB. Through their free carbon neutral shipping, their offsets support a Turkish wind farm. There’s nothing better than this kind of surprise in your mailbox! 

Their impact report shows all of the other ways they’re making a sustainable splash. You can also see the impact of each product in the product description.

Inclusivity: 

OB is one of our faves for inclusivity. They have an expansive size range (XS-XL for men and women) and have models of every size, too.

Community & charitable giving: 

The Organic Basics Fund is OB’s charitable output. It awards biannual grants to two different environmental organizations or causes based upon an open project proposal.

Their Low Impact Project is less about giving and more about inspiring. This photo journal project compiles visual evidence of ways their ambassadors are working to reduce their personal environmental impact with hopes to inspire others to do the same.

2. WOLVEN

We love staying fit and active, but we hate the use of unsustainable materials and unethical manufacturing in the world of fast fashion. So we found a selection of sustainable activewear brands that are redefining workout clothing. Image by Wolven #ethicalactivewear #ethicalactivewearbrands #sustainableactivewear #ethicalworkoutclothing #sustainableworkoutclothing #sustainablejungle
Image by Wolven
About Wolven

Wolven wants to Make Sustainability Sexy™—so much so that it’s their trademark. They combine intoxicating geometry patterns, vibrant colors, and some of the most sustainable materials out there to make sustainable activewear that not only feels good but looks fun and funky fresh. 

Our absolute favorite feature of their unique workout wear, however, is how darn versatile it is.  Almost everything they make is reversible, not just in color but sometimes in actual strap design. This holds true for both their activewear and swimwear, like this one piece swimsuit that can be worn 8 different ways!).

Their line of men’s and women’s stretchy sustainable activewear will suit anyone who appreciates a little flair in their fashion.

Wolven’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

Did you know that more than 6.4 million tons of plastic trash ends up in our oceans each year? Wolven is minimizing that amount by using marine plastic waste in their products. 

Their garments are made with recycled P.E.T fabric that’s OEKO-TEX 100 certified. They also use sustainably-harvested and carbon-neutral modal (which is one of our favorite sustainable fabrics).

For added stretch, the post-consumer recycled plastic or modal is blended with a small bit of spandex.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Some garments are sewn in downtown LA in a small, female-owned factory and some are ethically made in China. 

Surprisingly, China is apparently ahead of the US in environmental sustainability initiatives (they’re just at a higher risk of human rights abuses). Which is why Wolven’s Asian partners must follow strict guidelines regarding health, safety, pay, and work hours.  

To ensure customers that their claims are true, not just a wolven in sheep’s clothing, their supply chain is certified by the Workplace Conditions Assessment (WCA).

Green business practices: 

While they technically make sustainable activewear, what makes it truly sustainable is the fact that it can be worn for any purpose. They’ve designed their garments to be versatile (and not just because it’s reversible)—you could go straight from a hike to a first date and still feel great about your outfit. 

Wolven has partnered with Climate Neutral to purchase carbon credits to offset their footprint and simultaneously support projects like landfill methane-capture and rainforest conservation. 

They also use eco-friendly packaging made of hemp, recycled materials, or biodegradable paper.

Inclusivity: 

We’re super impressed to see models representing all of the sizes offered by Wolven (XS-XL). The 4-way stretch helps to make sure that each piece fits on heaps of body types so that everyone feels confident and comfortable.

Community & charitable giving: 

On the charity side, Wolven is a member of 1% for the Planet. As for outreach, their community spans far and wide thanks to their ambassador program, where you can get paid to spread your love for Wolven and promote sustainable fashion all at the same time.

3. BOODY

We love staying fit and active, but we hate the use of unsustainable materials and unethical manufacturing in the world of fast fashion. So we found a selection of sustainable activewear brands that are redefining workout clothing.

About Boody

Boody began almost a decade ago in Sydney, Australia, but they now have a second HQ in San Diego, so regardless of which continent you live on, you’re supporting domestic business in some way. 

What started as an ethical underwear company has now spread to everyday essentials, baby clothing, and activewear so comfortable you can lounge in it (or you know.. in their actual pajamas). 

Boody’s booty shaking activewear includes bodysuits (or should we say boody-suits), leggings, shorts, sports bras, tanks, and socks.

Boody’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

All Boody products are made of bamboo fiber viscose, organically grown in China and processed using non-toxic solvents and a closed-loop process, meaning it’s legit sustainable bamboo. This bamboo is certified by the FSC, Oeko-Tex 100, ECOCERT, and PETA, and undergoes additional SGS testing for non-toxicity. 

Some designs feature organic cotton blended with the bamboo and, like pretty much all brands on this list, Boody also uses small blends of other synthetic fabrics in their products like nylon and spandex (which are not compostable).

Supply chain & labor practices: 

To the best of their abilities, Boody works toward “maximizing positive outputs and minimizing negative ones through the entire supply chain.” Their WRAP certification and ISO 14001 compliance confirms these promises for a fair and humane supply chain.

Green business practices: 

They’re also committed to minimal environmental impact, just ask the impact counters present on every product page. They manage this by holding all their factories to strict ISO 9001 compliance and of course their closed-loop processes that recycle all water and eco friendly solvents.

Their packaging, which is also SGS tested for harmful substances, is simply recycled paper boxes printed with vegetable inks.

Inclusivity: 

Activewear can be a little cost exclusive, but Boody focuses on providing affordable ethical activewear to fit any budget, also offering payment installments. 

Plus, with a large range of sizes and the motto “Boody fits who you are, naturally,” you know the booty from Boody will fit your booty (whatever size it may be)!

Community & charitable giving: 

As part of the 1% for the Planet program, Boody puts a portion of their profits toward fighting malaria in Africa, through the sales of their Boody Giving Bracelet. 100% of profits of bracelet sales go to Goodbye Malaria and the Relate Organization.

They donate time, money, and products to various other charities as well. To name a few: Greening Australia, Thread Together, PropellerProjects, and the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.

4. ARMS OF ANDES

We love staying fit and active, but we hate the use of unsustainable materials and unethical manufacturing in the world of fast fashion. So we found a selection of sustainable activewear brands that are redefining workout clothing. Image by Arms of Andes #ethicalactivewear #ethicalactivewearbrands #sustainableactivewear #ethicalworkoutclothing #sustainableworkoutclothing #sustainablejungle

About Arms of Andes

Siblings Meli and Rensso are California-born millennials with Peruvian-descent. They wanted to bring their two worlds together to make the most sustainable workout clothes made with Inca’s most functional fiber: alpaca wool. 

Arms of Andes has nearly everything you’d need for an outdoor adventure: leggings, shirts, hoodies, socks, underwear, sports bras, and more. With alpaca wool’s ability to keep you both warm in winter and cool and dry in summer, it really is nature’s ultimate fitness fabric.

Arms of Andes’ Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

Arms of Andes keeps it simple: everything is made from 100% alpaca wool. While wool may seem like an odd choice for activewear, consider that it’s highly moisture-wicking, fast-drying, temperature regulating, and antimicrobial (so no post-workout stink!).

If you’re curious about how alpaca wool stands up to other sustainable fabrics, Arms of Andes elaborates on that here. They compare the footprint of their wool with other popular fabrics like merino wool, conventionally-grown cotton, and recycled polyester.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Arms of Andes works directly with herders in the Peruvian Andes. Specifically, families who have been using traditional farming techniques—like having small herds and an intimate relationship with the animals. 

The rest of the production takes place in Peru, too. This generates work for local herders, shearers, fiber sorters, drivers, and factory workers.

Green business practices: 

By choosing to work with alpaca wool, Arms of Andes are working with animals who are naturally adapted to work in the Peruvian highlands. Unlike other woolly animals, alpacas don’t destroy the soil. 

In fact, they actually support healthy ecosystems by treading lightly and grazing over large areas of land. Unlike goats used for cashmere, they’re light eaters, leaving the roots for regrowth. 

After the yarn is made, it’s processed right there in Peru, minimizing transport emissions.

Inclusivity: 

Women’s sizes run from XS-L, and men’s from S-XL.

5. PACT

Image by Pact #ethicalactivewear #ethicalactivewearbrands #sustainableactivewear #ethicalworkoutclothing #sustainableworkoutclothing #sustainablejungle
Image by Pact
About Pact

An age ago, we covered Pact’s selection of ethical underwear, and since then they’ve made appearance after appearance in our ethical fashions. We guess you could say we’ve made somewhat of an unofficial pact with them since they make such earth-conscious stuff that extends beyond the skivvies.  

This Boulder, Colorado based company also has an impressive line of sustainable workout clothes which includes leggings, tops, sports bras, hoodies, socks, and more.

With leggings and sports bras below $50, Pact is an excellent option for those who want affordable ethical activewear without compromising quality or fair business practices.

Pact’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

Just about everything in Pact’s lineup is made of GOTS-certified organic cotton, though some of their stretchier items (like leggings and sports bras) blend this with a small percentage of elastane for shape retention and durability.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

All Pact factories are Fair Trade USA certified and child-labor free. These factories (and 74% of their cotton suppliers) are located in India.

Green business practices: 

Aside from being fair and safe, Pact’s factories use conservative water and energy production methods.

They also use compostable and recyclable packaging, carbon offsets for all shipping emissions, and their clothes are free of any toxic dyes and chemicals normally found in comfortable activewear.

Inclusivity: 

Their products range from XS to XXL. Pact also utilizes models of all shapes and sizes, to show what their products look like on real women. They’re actually the originators of the body confidence motto #JustWearYou.

Community & charitable giving: 

Pact started a clothing donation program called Give Back. Wear Forward, through which they accept gently used clothes (of any brand) and give them to non-profits who can use them. Helping those in need and reducing textile waste? Now there’s a pact worth making.

About Iron Roots

When three friends were fed up with the plastic in their sportswear, they decided to do something different. Enter: Iron Roots.

This small but mighty athletic apparel brand prioritizes the best materials and ethical supply chains to make men’s and women’s workout clothes we can all feel good in.  

While their selection isn’t huge, it’s solid, with all the basic tops and bottoms you need. After all, a good workout isn’t about the number of reps; it’s all about the form!

Iron Roots’ Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

More than 90% of the sportswear found on the market contains polyester or another type of plastic. 

So, you won’t see those used in any of the fair trade activewear made by Iron Roots. They even avoid recycled plastics because of their contribution to microplastics being released in our oceans upon each washing. Their favorite fabric is hemp, which is responsible for 60% less emissions than polyester and has many other benefits.

They also use organic cotton and two of our favorite semi-synthetic sustainable fabrics: TENCEL lyocell and modal (made out of eucalyptus and beechwood, respectively). 

They’re also happy to experiment with new materials and they encourage their customers to reach out to them if they have any natural fabrics or fibres in mind!

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Iron Roots only works with raw material suppliers who have certifications from organizations like GOTS and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). 

Their main factories are located in Portugal and Greece and they have a close relationship with them to monitor all going-ons. They also work with other factories around the globe, all of which are ISO certified and are regularly inspected to ensure that they meet strict ethical standards.

Green business practices: 

In addition to the smaller footprint associated with their materials, Iron Roots also uses plastic-free packaging, minimizes their use of papers, and chooses the most sustainable shipping options.

Additionally, they also give people a discount to send back their old Iron Roots apparel so that it can be recycled into new clothes. A mark of a truly sustainable brand.

Inclusivity: 

Women’s sizes run from XS-L, and men’s from S-XL. It would be great to see an expanded size range as this brand continues to grow.

Community & charitable giving: 

They regularly give talks at events and university lectures to advocate for a fair and sustainable fashion industry as well as educate consumers on how to navigate the pitfalls of issues like fast fast and greenwashing.

About Beckons

Recognizing the power of clothing to change how someone feels, Beckons founder and yoga coach Becky Prater uses color, organic fabric, and intentional words to create beautiful clothes in every way possible:

“Made to love, to last, to speak… and to give back.”

Sounds like they’d make some pretty ethical activewear, doesn’t it? Beckons has a range of versatile and comfortable yoga clothing for men and women from leggings to ultra cozy and slouchy tops.

Each piece puts people and the planet first, down to the intention tag so that the powers of attraction will bring things like love, joy, balance, and courage.

Beckons’ Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

Beckons clothing is almost entirely organic cotton, blended with a touch of spandex for added flexibility. The cotton is certified by both the USDA and Organic Trade Association (OTA).

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Beckons supports organic growers around the globe  (in countries like the US, India, Turkey, and China) and manufacturers their garments in Denver, Colorado. Their processing is certified to be eco-friendly and socially responsible by Control IMO (the Institute for Marketecology).

Green business practices: 

Aside from the eco benefits that come with only using organic cotton, Beckons also recycles their shipping boxes and avoids using poly bags.

Inclusivity: 

Beckons has designed their sustainable athletic wear to be comfortable for every wearer. While larger sizes aren’t available in all styles (which by default run S-L), they have a decent Plus Shop for their most popular styles with sizes through 2XL.

Community & charitable giving: 

Beckons gives back. They support the YogaSlackers and donate all of their end-of-season unsold merchandise to charities like the Women’s Resource Network and the Samburu Tribe of Africa.

About Threads 4 Thought

Threads 4 Thought (T4T) has been encouraging people to #wearthoughtfully since 2006. They make women’s, children’s, and men’s ethical activewear from NYC. Their extensive line includes tees, tanks, sports bras, long-sleeved shirts, sweatshirts, joggers, leggings, and sweatpants

T4T’s motto is, “Wear the change you want to see.” This means “changing the narrative” of the fashion industry and that’s a philosophy we can run with.

Threads 4 Thought’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

T4T uses three main sustainable fabrics: recycled polyester, Lenzing Modal, and organic cotton, which is grown using crop rotation methods. Lenzing Modal is particularly exciting because it comes from a renewable beech bark that grows back after harvesting (without harming the tree).

T4T also repurpose 95% of the materials used in production. They even have an entire collection that’s made from recycled materials!

Supply chain & labor practices: 

They ensure all their factories have the best working conditions, confirmed by a combination of certifications by Fair Trade and Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP).

Green business practices: 

Aware of the impact of the fashion industry, T4T has released their Transparency Report highlighting their reduced water consumption (thanks to the fact that 80% of it is recycled in their main factory), packaging, and environmental impact as a whole. They’ve also highlighted areas that need improvement.

Inclusivity: 

The majority of T4T clothing ranges from XS to XXL. But, their ReActive line of sports bras and leggings only ranges from XS to XL. 

They’re also budget inclusive by not only pricing their affordable ethical workout clothes fairly but letting customers pay in installments.

Community & charitable giving: 

T4T partners with the International Rescue Committee by donating part of their profits towards helping refugees and other in-need communities.

9. RUBY MOON

So we found a selection of sustainable activewear brands that are redefining workout clothing. Image by Ruby Moon #ethicalactivewear #ethicalactivewearbrands #sustainableactivewear #ethicalworkoutclothing #sustainableworkoutclothing #sustainablejungle
Image by Ruby Moon
About Ruby Moon

We recently covered this UK not-for-profit business (the only one in the swimwear industry, in fact) in an article on ethical swimwear. But since RubyMoon makes award-winning versatile GymToSwim wear, we thought it was fair to also cover the gym side for those looking for ethical activewear in the UK.

RubyMoon was the first swim & activewear company to use ECONYL, 9+ years ago! Their ethical vegan workout clothes include padded sports bras, crop tops, and leggings. It’s “Activewear for Activists!”

Ruby Moon’s Ethical and Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

RubyMoon’s ethical workout clothes are all made with 100% recycled plastics. They come from either donated recycled stretch fabrics or ECONYL, made from recycled ocean plastics recovered by HealthySeas.org. 

Despite their dirty beginnings, this fabric is Oeko-Tex 100 certified and PETA-approved vegan.

Supply chain & labor practices: 

Ruby Moon promises everything is manufactured in safe, ethical environments either right in the U.K. or in Spain (which means minimal shipping distance between all supply chain entities). 

All products are distributed through the working mother’s support charity, Bags of Support.

Green business practices: 

Guided by the ethos of a circular economy, they are committed to producing as little waste and negative environmental impact as possible. By using recycled fabrics, they have received certification for producing 42% less carbon emissions. 

As a registered Community Interest Company, RubyMoon follows 9/17 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Inclusivity: 

Run by an all-female team, Ruby Moon is all about female empowerment and size inclusivity. Their pant sizes run XS-XL and their sports bras are suitable through a DD cup.

Community & charitable giving: 

RubyMoon is a not-for-profit fashion brand, a rare find. This means all profits go into loans for female education and entrepreneurial endeavors in developing companies. The goal is to help these women break out of generational cycles of poverty. Every garment they make is named after a woman they have supported. You can read the stories of these women on their website.

HOW WE FOUND ETHICAL WORKOUT CLOTHES

Just like you learn to walk before you run, we started our fashion journey by creating a guide to sustainable and ethical fashion

And using that as our yardstick, we create each one of our garment guides (and even some of our homewares guides) so that you can make the most educated decision about which brands to support and why.

When it comes to activewear, here’s how specifically applied our criteria:

Materials:

First, we look at the fabric. When it comes to the sustainability of our fabrics, we need to sweat the small stuff. Nothing says “ethical fitness” like a consciously chosen fabric. 

Rather than choosing petroleum-based virgin synthetics and inorganically grown biological fibers, we look for either natural compostable fibers (like organic cotton, hemp, and linen), semi-synthetic but still compostable fibers (like Tencel Lyocell, Modal, and bamboo– which should still be approached with caution), and recycled synthetics (note these should always be washed in a guppy bag to avoid microplastic pollution. You can find one at Reformation). 

Supply chain and labor practices:

Transparency is so important. We love companies that not only hold ethical business certifications but tell us exactly why they deserve them. Where do they manufacture? What are the conditions like?  Details like published impact reports, code of conducts, and modern slavery statements all add to the bank of data a brand is willing to show off. 

The best defense against greenwashing, third party certifications tell us whether a company’s sustainability claims are more than just a call for attention. Like those guys at your gym who grunt and drop their weights like the Saturday night mic…no one likes those guys. We want to know a company is really pumping all the iron they say they are.

Green business practices:

We love seeing things like carbon offsets, eco-friendly packaging, renewable energy, and any other initiatives (beyond good materials, of course) that help a brand preserve the health of our planet.

Inclusivity:

Companies should offer a wide range of sizes, promote diversity, and cultivate a positive body image. Just because it’s activewear doesn’t mean that it should only be reserved for people who look like they run every.single.day (and if you do, KUDOS because we sure don’t).

Community and charitable giving:

Hopefully, companies use their profits and privileges to give back a little bit. This can be through donating money to social or environmental causes, organizing community events, or even just promoting awareness about pressing issues.


FINAL THOUGHTS ON SUSTAINABLE WORKOUT CLOTHES

Are you feeling the burn? The burning desire to, well…burn some calories in sustainable and ethical activewear?! We sure are.

But just remember, the most sustainable pair of leggings is the one you already own. Otherwise, check out an online thrift store for some ideas. 

Failing that (and granted not everyone will take to secondhand sustainable workout clothes), support one of these brands who are changing the fitness game. By doing so, you can get active knowing that your clothing choices aren’t just helping you go fast; they’re helping fashion go slow.

Now, we’d love to hear your thoughts, have you tried any of these ethical workout clothes? and what’s your secret to those killer abs, or just your favorite post-workout smoothie recipe!
