I'm always on the hunt for new brands that provide environmentally friendly and sustainable products. Afterall, if there is a sustainable and ethical alternative to the products you use regularly, why wouldn't you invest into them? Luckily more and more options are available, and the yogi in me has found nirvana in my new leggings from Girlfriend Collective.
Girlfriend Collective is an athletic wear brand committed to high quality, ethical products made from 100% recycled materials. In turn, their clothes are 100% recyclable as well. GC pride themselves in transparency, and readily provide information regarding their ethical factory where workers are paid a living wage, where they purchase used water bottles to create their clothing, and how their partnership with ECONYL helps to recycle and reuse plastic waste found in the ocean.
Additionally, they believe in representation and inclusion. Their sizes go up to size 6XL and their leggings are available up to size 6XL with multiple options for inseam length. Their commitment to representation and inclusion can also been seen on their page dedicated to #BLACKLIVESMATTER where customers can access information, donation resources, and petitions regarding the movement along with links to black owned businesses. They even offer a contact form where customers can share ways they believe Girlfriend Collective can become even more inclusive and better their part in the fight for justice and equality.
In an attempt to follow my yoga routine in a more regular fashion, I bought the Compressive High Rise Legging in Plum to help me jump start my practice. I cannot express enough how thrilled I am with this purchase.
Aside from being made of 100% recycled water bottles (25 to be exact), these leggings are extremely high quality. They are flexible and allow me to move gracefully into each pose and breathe into my space. They aren't too tight, too high, uncomfortable, or poorly made with little fly away fabrics. They provide comfort, relaxation, and style to my yoga practice.
Along with their high level of comfort and quality, Girlfriend Collective's products are fashionable and are available in a wide variety of styles and colors. Their latest collection includes vibrant yellow and lovely lavender pieces to accompany you in your leisure, yoga, exercises, and daily life. Whatever the task at hand is, Girlfriend Collective allows you to be your most confident self while performing these tasks, with a hint of pride for choosing a company committed to sustainability and ethical standards as high as the skyscrapers downtown.
If all of this isn't enough, they also recently released their new line of socks and underwear, known as the Everyday GF Collection. Girlfriend Collective is your one stop shop for daily essentials and intimates, especially if you're a conscious shopper. Plus, they give back to their community through their Girlfriend to Girlfriend program.
