How to Make Your Workout More Sustainable!

Unfortunately, a lot of the equipment we use to get ourselves healthy is not healthy for the environment … but it can be. With the swing towards sustainability, and with all of us becoming more aware of our impact on the planet, several brands have created eco-friendly alternatives.

Activewear can also be harmful to the environment, as much of it is made primarily from synthetic fibers. Check out our line Cerinic, as a more eco-friendly alternative to your fitness apparel. We use recycled polyester in all our garments. Like traditional polyester, it’s a man-made fiber produced from synthetic material. Recycled polyester uses existing plastics, such as water bottles, to prevent our landfills from filling up and reduce emissions from incinerators. But we don’t just stop at our fabrics, all of our shipping materials and hangtags are also made with recycled materials … and we have pockets!
