Why buy sustainable activewear?
Feel Fit is set upon making sustainable activewear that isn’t just stylish but that is also affordable and something that you really can wear from gym to high-street.
But why is that? Why should we buy sustainable activewear?
Here we look at 5 main reasons why it is best to buy sustainable and why style / fashion shouldn’t cost the earth – quite literally!
- We know that recycled fabrics perform just as well as originals.
That’s right, in fact we believe that the recycled material perform better. Recycled polyester and polyamide retain all the technical attributes of the original materials. Econyl uses nylon waste, recovered fishing nets and we can 100% say it gives a 4 way stretch and that is 100% squat proof! Just what you want in a pair of leggings right!
It is believed that the process to manufacture sustainable activewear is only going to be get even better, as new designs and studies on the process come to light and the demand gets bigger.
- Does sustainable mean less quality then?
Well, no, is the straight answer. Sustainable is all about creating something from old that is new and longer lasting. To be longer lasting it needs to be of high quality right. As more and more companies realise they need to be sustainable, more ways to create these materials are designed and more ways to collect the waste which in turn is great for our planet.
- How it impacts the planet.
Sustainable activewear made from organic cotton uses significantly less water and pollution, plus recycled or upcycle materials takes advantage of the energy already used in the first production round of the original fabrics that results in about 70% less energy used second time round!
10% of the global greenhouse emissions are from the textile industry. By using these sustainable materials, crude oil usage is reduced, and this reduces the carbon footprint of the items.
- Reducing that good old plastic waste!
The major concern around the environment today is plastic as it is not biodegradable which means it is here to stay! We all need to do our part and by purchasing activewear made from recycled plastics we are helping divert plastics from landfill and our oceans!!!!!
- The key to sustainable clothing is to make it last longer
When choosing sustainable activewear you are giving that plastic waste a second chance to avoid destroying our planet!
It really will end up in landfill or on the beach washed up or in the ocean.
We spoke to some regular customers at Feel Fit and here is what they had to say about their sustainable kit….
“I first brought my pair from Ellie when she was working from the old gym just before lockdown. My leggings are still the same now, same shape, they don’t fall down, wear so well and they have not bobbled or spilt anywhere! They are 3 years old now and I still love them just as much!”
“I don’t think I know of any other brand that has such a good design and that lasts! My leggings are coming up 2 years and they are still in the same condition to when I brought them.”
“I just can’t get enough pairs of FF leggings – I have them in all sizes and style! I love them and can honestly say I wear them as much outside of the gym as inside the gym! “
Worth every penny and saving the planet at the same time!
Stylishly activewear that doesn’t cost the Earth and saves pennies for you too.
