With new brands delivering both performance-boosting and sustainable products, there’s no need to sacrifice one for the other.
Sustainability within the fitness industry has come a long way in the past few years, and this isn’t just the case for workout apparel. Brands creating planet-friendly products are no longer a rarity, which makes ensuring your kit doesn’t contain harmful materials or ingredients a whole lot easier.
Simple changes like swapping out hard-to-recycle packaging can remove a considerable amount of plastic from a product’s journey. And the move towards natural, ethically-sourced ingredients is improving the quality and sustainable credentials for many nutritional ranges.
If you’re looking to switch up your routine and give the planet a bit of love, here are six eco-friendly products to add to your basket.
