I love the thrill of buying something new, but between being a quality over quantity type of person and also a “worried about the earth” person, when I’m out shopping, I try to pick pieces that I know will last me at least a few years. One of the ways I practice conscious consumerism is to shop for clothes that will not only last for a longer time, but that are made from sustainably sourced materials.
And that’s where this round-up comes in: It features activewear and gear crafted from at least 45 percent recycled ocean plastics, recycled nylon waste (like old fishing nets) or Tencel (which is regenerated from wood cellulose). Not only will these 17 pieces look and feel great, they’re also a little better for the earth.
