The activewear legging that started it all!
An extra high-rise with four-way stretch and compressive fabric made from recycled water bottles — basically everything you need to get through your favorite high-impact activities, like running, yoga, and binge watching true crime.
A plastic water bottle can take up to 500 years to decompose. Each pair of compressive leggings diverts 25 bottles from landfills and contains 79% RPET and 21% spandex. To take care of them, machine wash cold with similar colours and line dry flat.
Husband and wife Ellie and Quang Dinh founded Girlfriend Collective after spotting a gap in the market for luxurious, responsibly produced activewear. Using fabrics made from recycled water bottles, fishing nets and other plastic waste, the brand designs high-performance leggings, tops and sports bras using eco-friendly dyes.
Did you know?
Almost all synthetic activewear is made from plastic? Girlfriend Collective make theirs with materials that would otherwise clog landfills and pollute the earth. It all starts with 100% post-consumer water bottles that have their labels removed, are crushed into billions of miniscule chips, and then washed until they’re sparkling clean.
After a bunch of science stuff with names like “polymerization,” you get a soft, recycled yarn that eliminates the need for petroleum and diverts water bottles from landfills.
