From the gym to brunch and now picnics, activewear has become a staple in most women’s wardrobes and there is no doubt that it is a trend that is here to stay. In fact, the industry is now worth $155 billion dollars! That is a lot of product that is being churned out each year.
However, like with any industry, the production of activewear can produce a lot of waste, from items of clothing going unworn and getting thrown out to chemical dyes, solvents and other petrochemicals used in some production factories that can be potentially hazardous for the environment causing degradation and a build-up of waste material.
However Bondi Active is one brand that is consciously getting creative in order to reduce its carbon footprint, while also creating garments that are made to perform.
Enter their new Alloy collection, a range that has been made from recycled water bottles and fishing nets.
“We have been working on how to create a recycled collection for a while, and we are so excited that we have managed to create a range that is made from 100% recycled materials, while not compromising on quality. It is still quick-dry, has 4-way stretch and even has a compression fit fabrication to help smooth and support the body. It’s not just an environmentally friendly range, it is also functional.” says Briony Oayda from Bondi Active.
“We love the design of this range just as much as the fabric used in it. With travel limited, we wanted to bring the holiday home with resort-inspired prints, pops of sunny yellow and palm tree motifs. It’s also our most flattering range to date with our retro-inspired crops and pants that hug you in all the right places (and actually stay put no matter how strenuous the workout!).”
Whether it’s pounding the promenade at dawn, soft-sand sprints by dusk, cheeky mid-arvo dips or pre-coffee chin-ups, Bondi Active is stress-tested to go the distance. Providing the perfect activewear for beachside bodies that will work hard and play fair with you, while also enjoying their eco-friendly and recycled fabrics.
