Let’s go, activewear bike shorts!
You don’t have to bike to wear bike shorts, but biking cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions, reduces road congestion, and is a pollution-free mode of transport… just saying. Made from recycled water bottles for working out and looking cute.
A plastic water bottle can take up to 500 years to decompose. Each pair of pocket 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.
