THE ROAD TO SUSTAINABILITY IS PAVED WITH GYM SHORTS
You probably already heard that we are kind of in the process of destroying our planet.
Since the 70s our society began heavily exploiting the planet and upsetting the natural balance.
Scientists are frequently appealing to authorities, asking them to reduce the damaging activity. Unfortunately with little to no effect…
More and more people are starting to take responsibility for their impact on the planet.
If individuals can take responsibility, businesses have to.
That’s why as a business we’re moving towards sustainable gym wear.
Find out more about one of our favourite sustainable gym wear products; sustainable gym shorts.
WHY IS SUSTAINABILITY SO IMPORTANT?
It’s quite simple. Our destructive actions are making nature disappear.
Let’s put this into perspective so that we can really see how destructive we are as a species.
In 50 years we managed to upset the perfect natural balance which has existed on earth since the ice age ended about 10,000 years ago.
We upset it so much that our planet is slowly becoming uninhabitable.
Water, food, and air quality are getting worse every year.
The ‘lungs’ of our planet (rainforests and oceans) are destroyed and polluted.
That’s impressive. The only thing is that it isn’t good for anybody.
At this rate, future generations will not have a place to live. Their only hopes will be following Elon Musk’s plan to evacuate to Mars. Which is nowhere near as beautiful as our planet, by the way.
Scientists are trying to talk sense into the governments. Warning us that without a serious change things will turn ugly. But we all know that politics are complicated and changes take a long time to implement.
IT’S UP TO US TO MAKE CHANGES
Remember when hippie movements started? They were ridiculed for being tree huggers and weirdos. Society didn’t like their pro-environment views and protests.
Imagine how different the planet would be now if instead of being ridiculed they were listened to.
Since the 70’s things have changed. People now chose to participate in environmentally friendly movements. From established celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio to teenagers like Greta Thunberg, people are fighting for a better earth. Making an impact.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE GRETA TO MAKE AN IMPACT
Yes, Greta kind of ended up blowing up all over the news and social media. But you don’t have to do that to be the hero.
All you have to do is play your part. Do a little bit every day.
Recycle, limit your single-use plastics, use cosmetics that don’t harm aquatic life, don’t buy products that contribute to deforestation. Buy sustainable gym shorts instead of your usual pair.
WE WANT TO GIVE YOU ONE MORE WAY TO SUPPORT THE ENVIRONMENT; SUSTAINABLE GYM WEAR
Every little helps, right? That’s why we brainstormed ways in which we could support the environment and give our customers the chance to do the same. We believe that sustainable gym wear is the future.
WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE GYM WEAR?
Sustainable gym wear is gym wear made from recycled plastics.
Our sustainable gym shorts are made from 92% eco-friendly and recycled fibres. The recycled fibres are polyester and nylon. The remaining 8% is elastane.
WHERE DO THE RECYCLED PLASTICS FOR SUSTAINABLE LEGGING SHORTS COME FROM?
The materials for our sustainable booty shorts come from two sources. Post-consumer and pre-consumer recycled plastics.
Post-consumer plastics are recycled plastics like water bottles. They’re recycled by you, the consumer.
Pre-consumer plastics are plastics that never made it to the shop shelf. They’re usually recycled right away from a manufacturing line.
The benefit of pre-consumer plastics is that they have a smaller environmental impact. They’re not transported to the supermarket, then from the supermarket to your home, then to the recycling plant, and then to us. These plastics go from the manufacturer to us.
THE BENEFITS OF OUR SUSTAINABLE GYM SHORTS
Our sustainable workout shorts are the best pair of gym shorts you’ll lay your hands on. That’s a promise.
Our gym wear is notorious for durability. Hundreds of workouts later and our gym shorts are still looking like new. The material doesn’t lose shape, ladder, bobble or fade.
SUPPORTING SLOW FASHION
The case for durability is bigger than your satisfaction. Poor quality clothes quickly end up in overflowing charity shops or landfills. This is the curse of fast fashion which contributes to environmental pollution.

HOW TO CARE FOR OUR SUSTAINABLE GYM SHORTS?
Caring for our seamless shorts is easy. We encourage you to take care of your gym leggings and gym wear to keep them in great condition for as long as possible.
SIMPLE WASH ROUTINE FOR SUSTAINABLE GYM SHORTS
The easiest way to wash your legging shorts is in the washing machine with other synthetic clothes. Your washing machine probably has a cycle, especially for synthetics. This will take care of the temperature and the wash cycle.
MANUAL WASH SETTINGS FOR SEAMLESS SHORTS
If you manually have to set your washing machine, use lower temperatures and a mild cycle for your seamless gym wear.
HAND WASHING SUSTAINABLE GYM WEAR
If you don’t have enough gym clothes to run the washing machine hand wash your sportswear. It’s quick, easy, and will save you money in the long run. It’s also better for the environment.
DRYING SUSTAINABLE GYM SHORTS AND GYM WEAR
Our high waisted shorts dry fast so you don’t need to use a tumble dryer. Letting everything air dry will make it last longer. It's also better for the environment!
You can use detergents specifically designed for sportswear or your regular detergent. You don’t need to use fabric softener with our gym shorts. They're already heavenly soft.
