There’s nothing quite like the adrenaline rush you get from a good sweat sesh at the gym. Although, what if you could not only better your health, but your contribution to the planet and look stylish while doing it!
Despite the fact that activewear is having a major moment, there are very few brands producing sustainable, ethical, and environmentally conscious products. Curbing our fast fashion buying tendencies in favour of lasting and durable options can do wonders for the environment and your bank statement in the long run.
With this in mind, HyperLuxe has introduced a new ‘Sustainable Edit’ to our online shop that features brands such as P.E Nation, Nimble, Veja, Dharma Bums, Mother SPF and Nat’v Basics that are doing right by mother nature and have designed the chicest environmentally friendly activewear, sneakers, sports bras, bathers, sunscreen and undies.
What makes these products sustainable you ask? It's all about the materials they are made from and the process behind sourcing those materials and turning them into the fashionable threads we all love chucking on for a coastal walk.
Nimble’s products are made from post-consumer used recycled plastics, and P.E Nation’s ‘Conscious Nation’ collection utilises sustainable and recycled fabric. Nat’v Basics’ underwear is 80% biodegradable and fashioned from renewable wood sources, whereas Dharma Bums’ ethical activewear is made with materials that have been tested for harmful substances in environmentally friendly facilities.
Mother SPF30’s sunscreen consists of just 9 sustainably sourced and certified organic ingredients, and Veja sneakers are made with raw materials from organic and agro-ecological farming, without chemicals or polluting processes.
Some of our eco-conscious favourites include:
Nimble’s Zoom Bike Short in Polka White buttery soft and lightweight, fashioned out of recycled PET and spandex.
P.E Nation’s Set Short Sports Bra in Black made from recycled matte compressive performance fabrication and perfectly designed for spin class and the coffee-date that follows, as well as being equipped with digital leopard print lining for added fierceness.
If you’re rocking a sustainable sports bra you may as well slip on some undies to match. Nat’v Basics’ Callie Bikini Brief boasts enhanced breathability, eco soft technology and a minimal footprint on both carbon and water resources.
The Dharma Bums Deluxe Relaxed White Tee made from Pima Cotton Yarn and plant-based fibres means that this classic garment is not only sustainable, but irresistibly soft and comfortable. Ideal to chuck on over your Nimble bike shorts or even some jeans if you want to dress it up.
A vital product that must be included in everyone’s skin care routine, especially being located in sunny Australia, is sunscreen! Mother SPF30’s Non-Tinted Daily Face & Body Sunscreen is created to nourish, hydrate and protect the skin on a daily basis. The main ingredient, Zinc Oxide, providing anti-inflammatory properties and nutrient rich minerals that are Reef Friendly and photostable (AKA doesn’t break down in sunlight).
And last but not least Veja’s V-10 Bastille Sneaker in White/Natural assembled out of ecological and sustainable materials that complete any stylish athleisure look.
If it’s good for you and the planet, it’s a win-win in our books! All the products mentioned above and more from these brands are available via the ‘Sustainable Edit’ tab on the HyperLuxe website! Go on, get to work on making the world a better place!
