Manduka

Manduka Aurora yoga pants made of OEKO-TEX Certified fabric

The Manduka clothing collection is designed using fabrics sourced primarily from environmentally responsible materials such as organic cotton, plant-based materials, and recycled fabrics. Manduka also creates high quality products so you know they will last much longer than one season, reducing clothing that ends up in landfill. The Aurora yoga pants (pictured above), for example, are made with OEKO-tex certified fabrics.

Boody Eco Wear

Boody Eco Wear racerback bra is made with bamboo rayon.

Boody Eco Wear started as a sustainable undergarment brand but quickly evolved to create a line of activewear. Their activewear is made with bamboo, which is a renewable resource. They have several certifications including ECOCERT and WRAP (which ensures sewn products are being produced under lawful, humane, and ethical conditions). The Boody racerback sports bra (pictured above), for example, is made of 80% bamboo rayon and has been certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX (meaning it doesn’t contain any substances harmful to human health).

PrAna

PrAna Becksa leggings are made of a recylced polyester blend

If you’re looking for a good selection of sustainable yoga clothes, look no further than PrAna. They use lower impact fabrics like recycled wool, organic cotton, and recycled nylon. They have 11 Fair Trade factories they work with (and aiming to have all factories be certified Fair Trade by 2028). They are working towards eliminating plastic from their manufacturing by the end of 2021. Their Becksa Leggings (pictured above), for example, are made of 76% recycled nylon, are a Bluesign Certified Product, and made in a Fair Trade Certified Factory.

GIRLFRIEND COLLECTIVE

Girlfriend Collective does it all when it comes to sustainability. Their packaging is 100% recycled and recyclable. Yoga attire is made of materials like recycled polyester and cupro (cotton waste material). All of their textiles are made in their facility in Taiwan that specializes in eco-friendly and high-quality textiles, then cut-and-sewn in one of our partner facilities carefully chosen for their values and ethics. Their core factory is in Vietnam; it’s SA8000 certified, guarantees fair wages, safe and healthy conditions, and zero forced or child labor. 

PRANA VIDA: Made in Canada

Prana Vida is a Canadian female founded company. They made all their clothes in Canada as well. The owner is committed to making her collection with the most eco-friendly natural and recycled fabric options, such as TENCEL. What’s revolutionary about Tencel® manufacturing is that 99.8 percent of the solvent (magnesium bisulphite) is recovered and reused using a closed loop manufacturing process. The remaining emissions are broken down in biological water treatment plants. The solvent is not acidic, does not remain in the fibre, and has been proven harmless. Prana Vida ships packages plastic-free in compostable paper or cardboard packaging.

Honourable mention: ForDays

ForDays Even Better Sweatshirt and sweatpants are made of 99% organic content

While ForDays doesn’t make clothes specifically for yoga, they do have a line of joggers, tees, and sweaters that are great for yin yoga or for those who like to wear looser or warmer fabrics during their practice. ForDays only uses sustainable and upcycled materials. They ensure that every item is 100% recyclable. They minimize waste with things like reusable packaging and company-wide carbon offsets. But most importantly, they have created a SWAP program, which means that for a great price, you can swap out anything, anytime, for any reason. Everything you send back gets recycled. This is called a closed loop system, eliminating clothing from landfill.

Secondhand Yoga clothes

The most sustainable option is to buy second hand. Roughly 13 million tonnes of textiles go to waste each year, so doing your part to minimize this waste is a big help to the environment. There are lots of companies that now sell secondhand clothing online. Try ThredUp, PoshMark, and eBay.
