Here in Australia, we get to experience some of mother earth’s finest work — from the spectacular beaches and tropical rainforests to the impressive desert ranges. So, it’s no surprise that a growing number of fashion labels are becoming woke when it comes to doing their bit to save our beautiful planet.
This applies to the activewear industry, too, as there are some incredibly innovative Aussie brands producing ethical, sustainable and eco-friendly pieces that still look and feel ah-mazing.
Here, we’ve rounded up some of the green activewear brands to add to your workout wardrobe this year.
1. Mister Timbuktu
This innovative Aussie brand makes high-quality activewear from recycled water bottles! In case that wasn’t impressive enough, they only work with manufacturers that protect workers rights AND they donate 20% of their proceeds to a mental health charity and the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife. Yep, this is one homegrown company you can feel good about getting behind.
