Staying fit doesn’t have to mean boring, old leggings and giant, ratty T-shirts as you begrudgingly try to get your steps in for the day. In fact, finding fun new outfits to show off might actually make getting to your next workout or pilates class that much easier. But what to do when you don’t want to compromise your ethical beliefs for a cute Insta-worthy fit? Turn to VegNews, of course! 

With ethical labor practices, post-consumer recycled materials, and responsible sourcing, these activewear brands prove style doesn’t need to take the backburner when it comes to sustainability. So whether you’re strength training (did you know vegans who lift weights have better bone strength?), sauntering off to a yoga class (add these dreamy yoga retreats to your bucket list), or just running errands, looking stylish just got a lot more ethical with these five sustainable brands.

Biker shorts, sports bras, and stretch leggings are all staples in an athlete’s wardrobe, so why not make them as non-toxic and organic as possible so they last a lifetime? Women-owned MATE even goes so far as to eliminate polyester, nylon, and polyamide from their products while also using low-impact dyes that require less water.
