Say hello to the most flattering and confortable leggings ever.
But the best thing about the GIRLFRIEND COLLECTIVE activewear range is that it is made with the utmost respect for the environment and working conditions, all the while recycling single use plastic bottles from landfills. I mean, what's not to love!
Here is their ethos:
"We believe good things come to
those who don't waste.
We believe in ethical manufacturing
and recycled materials. Because old
water bottles and fishing nets look
better on you than they do clogging
landfills and polluting oceans.
We believe health and wellness
come in many shapes and sizes,
and that representation matters.
We believe in being transparent,
taking care of the people who make
your clothes, and never putting our
bottom line before what’s best for the
We're Girlfriend Collective and we
believe that together we can change the world"
And for the technical bit: compressive Leggings and Bras are made from 79% recycled polyester (or RPET) and 21% spandex, so to give you an example, leggings are made from 25 recycled post-consumer bottles and your bras are made from 11.
The super soft fabrics they use are dyed with eco-friendly dyes and the wastewater is carefully cleaned and cooled before it is released. This unique dyeing process can result in some very subtle irregularities in colour. Please note colours may very rarely run on the first wash, so we recommend washing your new leggings separately or with similar colours just in case.
