STYLIST – The best ethical and eco-friendly activewear brands
By Hannah Keegan
From swimwear made from recycled ocean plastic to biodegradable yoga mats, here are the UK’s best sustainable activewear companies.
Made from 100% regenerated nylon yarn, Davy J’s swimwear is bright, fun and built to last. But when your suit does come to the end of its life, you’re urged to return it so the material can be reused. It uses organic cotton, recycled nylon and low-impact synthetic dyes. This guarantees they are made in an environmentally friendly way, in a socially responsible workplace.
All Maarï’s chic monochrome swimsuits are crafted with high-tech Econyl yarn, a process that involves transforming abandoned fishing nets and nylon waste into a secondary raw material.
