Here, at Weekendbee, we hold a collection of sustainably made and trendy looking clothes from brands like Patagonia, Népra, and Girlfriend Collective! We care how our yoga clothes are made and we also care how good they make us feel! Tops, leggings, and shorts that help you move in your own rhythm and stay close to nature at the same time!
Finding your best yoga and activewear just became easier than doing the workout itself! More and more active and outdoor brands are becoming conscious of how they make, design, ship and produce their clothes, but there are a few yoga and activewear brands that really stand out!
Responsibly made - Patagonia yoga and clothing and activewear moves with you through poses, workouts or climbs.
Patagonia appreciates that all life on earth is under threat of extinction. They aim to use the resources they have—business, investments, voice, and imaginations—to do something about it.
Whether you're looking for yoga pants, outdoor jackets, running shorts, or activewear, Patagonia got you covered. Brand's organic materials such as organic cotton, Tencel, recycled polyester and hemp have excellent properties for all activities.
Patagonia pledges at least one percent of sales or 10 percent of pre-tax profits, whichever is more, to environmental groups.
Patagonia is aiming to use 100% recycled or renewable materials in its production in the future. The current percentage is 69%.
In 1994, Patagonia made the decision to take a stand against chemically intensive cotton and switch to organically grown cotton throughout the line.
In an attempt to improve the lives of those who make Patagonia products, they offer 192 styles that are Fair Trade Certified for sewing.
Part of the production is Bluesign® certified.
