Our Steps to Green Fashion in Activewear

Our Steps to Green Fashion in Activewear

Sustainable fashion in activewear benefits both the environment and the wearer. By opting for sustainable materials such as recycled polyester or organic cotton, activewear brands can reduce their carbon footprint and minimize waste. These materials also tend to be more durable, allowing for longer wear and fewer replacements.

Most activewear items are made using either polyester or polyamide/nylon and some kind of elastic fiber such as elastane, spandex, or Lycra. This combination creates moisture-wicking fabrics perfect even for physically demanding and high-impact activities. Unfortunately, since synthetic fibers are produced using fossil fuels, their production directly impacts greenhouse gas emissions.

In addition, sustainable activewear often incorporates ethical and fair labor practices, ensuring that workers are treated fairly and paid a living wage. This not only benefits the workers but also promotes a more ethical and responsible fashion industry.

Finally, sustainable activewear can be just as stylish and functional as traditional activewear. Brands are incorporating innovative designs and technology to create high-performance, eco-friendly pieces that look great and perform well during workouts. By choosing sustainable activewear, you can feel good about your fashion choices while also doing your part for the planet.

This year Lydia Endora is working closer towards our footprints in sustainability. Our new activewear line is made from discarded polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles and post-industrial/pre-consumer scraps of nylon, recycling them and regenerating them into activewear.

Our 100% recycled nylon fibers are GREENLON® nylon yarns that save energy up to 8.5% and water up to 84%, whilst reducing up to 77% of CO2 emission.
