Our environment is facing a monumental crisis. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges affecting our world today. And it’s so important to support eco brands because fast fashion is one of its leading contributors.
 
Most of us are aware that we vote with our wallets every day. We have the power to create and influence change by carefully selecting where we spend our hard-earned money.
 
As yogis, we can even affect change by consciously choosing eco brands and products that are eco-friendly and help protect – as opposed to further harming – the environment.
 

We vote with our wallets every day.

 
Supporting brands that create eco-friendly yoga clothes (as opposed to fast fashion) and other environmentally-friendly yoga gear is a simple yet impactful way to help protect the environment.
 
 

Here Are 7 Eco-Friendly Yoga Brands You Need to Know

You can shop great gear from these eco brands with confidence and a clear conscience!
 

1. Girlfriend Collective

Ethical manufacturing, sustainable materials, epic performance. This tagline just about sums it up. Girlfriend Collective is a sustainable, ethical, and eco-friendly yoga brand that makes yoga clothing from recycled plastic.

They treat dye wastewater with care and even recycling their own byproducts from production. No step in the process has been overlooked – GC is producing slow fashion at its finest.
 

2. PIYOGA

PIYOGA pants are pants with a purpose. PIYOGA is an awesome eco-friendly yoga brand that proudly donates 10% of net profits directly to both Balinese and global sea turtle and ocean conservation efforts.

Super cute and comfortable, these yoga pants are super lightweight (ideal for travelers), extra soft, and extremely breathable. They’re made from 100% rayon – a textile fiber made from wood pulp – so it doesn’t pill, it wicks sweat quickly, and it isn’t polyester (in other words, it isn’t made from plastic).
