Workout clothes are no longer just for working out- you can wear workout leggings and sports bras any time, any day. Athletic wear is comfortable and easy to throw on, and you can even dress your look up with accessories if need be. And since the athleisure look is super popular right now, it’s never a bad idea to shop sustainably. The fashion industry has some severe sustainability problems. If you’re looking to buy more eco-consciously, that includes athletic wear. These are some eco-friendly workout brands to shop this summer:
