Keep warm on your morning jog with the Lightweight Hoodie, which comes in cadet blue heather and mallard heather colors.
Activewear made from bamboo? You got it! Boody creates their clothing from organic bamboo plants using an eco-friendly processing system, resulting in a silky soft feel you’ll want to wear both in and out of the gym. The Active Blended High-Waisted Full leggings are available in a dark grey marl color and have pockets attached on both sides, perfect for holding your keys, headphones, or any other items you might take on an adventure.

Organic Basics offers sustainable and functional activewear for both men and women using materials such as recycled nylon. The clothing is also treated with Polygiene, a silver salt solution which prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria so you can spend more time perfecting your downward dog and less time traveling to the laundry room. Choose from styles like the SilverTech Active Leggings (sea blue, black, and burgundy colors available), or the SilverTech Active Long Sleeve Tee (sea blue, black, forest green, and stone grey colors available).
Feel smooth as (vegan) butter in the athletic wear from Alternative Apparel, which is made using materials such as organic cotton, post-consumer recycled polyester, and even wood (yes, wood)! The mens and womens hoodies are perfect for evening walks with your boo or for pulling over your gym clothes on brisk fall days. We like to warm up with the Terry Cropped Raw Edge Hoodie (available in blue, rose wine, grey, sky blue, coral, and purple), and the Eco-Cozy Fleece Pullover Hoodie (available in black, white, apple red, and heather grey).
Groceries Apparel offers sustainable mens and womens athletic wear made from materials such as organic and recycled cotton, eucalyptus, recycled plastic, hemp, and vegetable dye. All of the activewear is 100% nontoxic, so you can feel and look your best whether you’re running on the treadmill or perfecting your handstand at the yoga studio. Show off your eco-friendly style in the Cami Crop top or the Unisex Vee t-shirt.
An innovator in the fashion industry, Nature Hommage uses sustainable techno-fabrics to create their beautifully designed and eco-friendly clothing. The Panel Leggings (available in sand, forest, and stone colors), are made with recycled ECONYL, an ultra-silky recycled Italian performance yarn, and can be worn during your favorite spin class or on errands around the town.
Ably designs functional, flexible, and fashionable activewear made from eco-friendly materials such as Filium, a technology that makes natural fabrics repel liquids, stains, and odors while still remaining soft and breathable. The Women’s Rib Cuffs Sweatpants can be worn while lifting weights or working from home, and come in a variety of colors such as sage and riviera (blue). The Men’s Lightweight French Terry Joggers (available in grey and black) are also ideal for crushing workouts or lounging on the couch—you choose!
Designed for the active minimalist, Eleven44 offers athletic wear for both men and women using sustainable fabrics like organic cotton, bamboo, and linen. Look chic at your next fitness class in the Printed High Waist Leggings, which will lift and tone your curves just like shapewear. The Mens Black Leggings are also perfect for the gym and can be worn as streetwear for an athleisure look.
