Fast fashion brands

carbon emissions
, not to mention have massive
carbon
and
water footprints
.
The good news is that you can help by being a conscious consumer and purchasing ethically-sourced and sustainably-made products—including your activewear. If you're looking to make more planet-friendly fashion choices while also staying active, check out our top sustainable activewear picks.
