Founded 2016, the founders of activewear brand Girlfriend Collective discovered a way of making polyester entirely from recycled water bottles. Since then, Girlfriend Collective have led the way in creating beautiful, functional activewear that is both sustainably made and kind to the planet.
Compressive Leggings, Bras and Reusable Pouch
These are made from 79% recycled polyester and 21% spandex. The leggings are made from 25 recycled post-consumer bottles and the bras are made from 11.
Made from recycled fishing nets and other waste using ECONYL® yarn, their LITE fabric is made up of 83% recycled nylon and 17% spandex.
All tees and tanks are made from cupro, a fibre made from waste from the cotton industry and the yarn is made from zero-waste, zero-emissions facility in Japan.
Their packaging is 100% recycled and recyclable
To add to this, Girlfriend Collective use a unique dying eco-friendly dying process whereby wastewater is carefully treated and cleaned before being released. If this isn’t enough, they donate the dye mud to a local pavement facility where it’s recycled into sidewalks and roads.
