From sustainable swimsuits to eco-friendly sneakers, it's becoming easier than ever to shop all your favorite products that are produced in less harmful ways to the planet. Now thanks to Free People, you can even get workout clothes that help the environment. The popular retailer is excited to announce its latest line from FP Movement called eCONYL.
The collection is made from an innovative yarn specially developed in Italy. It is created with 100 percent of regenerated nylon fiber made with discarded waste collected from landfills and oceans, including items like fishing nets and fabric scraps. For every 10,000 tons of eCONYL raw material, 70,000 barrels of crude oil are saved, and 57,100 tons of CO2 eq. emissions are avoided. The material feels soft, looks flattering, and is beyond comfortable. How do I know? Because I tried it.
I have to admit, as much as I love sustainable fashion, sometimes it just isn't the same. But when it comes to the eCONYL collection, that isn't the case. I've worn it to the gym, on long hikes, and just around town running errands. My favorite thing: the leggings feel sturdy and give just the right amount of coverage without feeling too tight or too lose. Plus, they're actually stylish. They come in a range of colors and styles with cute cutouts and mesh details. Keep reading to see the collection, and shop it for yourself.
