We live in a time where sustainable fashion is finally 100 percent relevant, and my tree-hugging heart couldn’t be happier.

Athleisure doesn’t mean that these clothes are made exclusively for the gym. They can be styled into different outfits (yes, even the sports bras) both for work and play, depending on the occasion.

The philosophy “you are what you eat” coincides with the belief that what we see in our closet should also reflect who we are, how we feel, and what we value the most, which I think is what sets these brands apart.


The Elixir bra is a compression which features a racerback macramé lattice back detail, adjustable straps, interior bra liner with encased elastic, removable modesty cups, and a mini diamond woven label.

prAna’s designs are based on personal experiences and they see themselves not only as makers but doers as well. The brand was established in 1992 when Beaver Theodosakis and wife Pam started sewing clothes in their garage in Carlsbad, California. Since then, prAna has grown to become an eco-friendly fashion line that plants its commitment to sustainability.

The brand only uses natural fibers, hemp, organic cotton, and recycled materials such as polyester and wool for their collections. This means that their pieces bear fewer toxins and chemicals.

This GOTS-certified (Global Organic Textile Standard Certified Organic Cotton) brand from Australia supports fair trade and organic and recycled materials. Like prAna, Shift to Nature isn’t limited to athleisure products. They also carry menswear, baby clothes, and linen such as quilt covers, pillowcases, and cushions.


Alternative Apparel

Almost 80 percent of Alternative Apparel’s products are made from sustainable materials and processes. Apart from their own line, they also house many different brands who share the same goal: to harm the environment less while still upholding the principle of producing quality garments.
