Pact Go-To Legging
This year, I'm being more mindful of my environmental footprint, which means I'm trying to buy fewer single-use plastics and make more conscious, sustainable clothing choices, among other things. When it comes to workout clothes, that can get a little tough; I still want my leggings to be stretchy, comfortable, and sweat-wicking, but without the chemicals it usually takes to produce those fabrics. Organic cotton is a good place to start. It's a natural textile that sidesteps any pesticides and insecticides, which have myriad detrimental effects on the environment, not to mention human health.
We all have our favorite name-brand leggings, but when you're trying to make more eco-friendly choices, it might be time to look beyond the big brands we know and love. I did an online shopping deep dive to find eight quality, eco-friendly organic leggings that you can feel good about buying. These options are made with a percentage of synthetic fabrics (they've got to get stretchy somehow, I guess), but they're majority-organic, which is better than none at all, right? Buying a pair of these Earth-friendly leggings might be a small step, but voting with your dollar sends a message: you're telling brands you want more of this sustainable, better-for-you, better-for-the-planet clothing, and that counts for something.
