Recycled Workout Gear
Over the weekend, I went shopping for some new workout clothes and my eco-Spidey senses gravitated towards this sign in the Sports Authority store: Play Green!
It’s a line called Champion Eco Fleece and it is made from plastic water/soda bottles that helps keep up to 5 million bottles out of the landfill. I like where this is going very much.
Labeled on the inside with the green “eco” label….
And a sticker on these gray eco-fleece pants also let you know they are made from plastic water bottles and are “Future Friendly.” I also like the fact they are using a food-grade nylon to make their fleece which also means the quality isn’t compromised in anyway and is actually better than virgin polyester. So, going green means better quality. Plus, the prices can’t be beat.
A whole assortment of choices made from the Eco Fleece… I picked up a few to stay warm during these chilly winter months to layer when going to the gym or working out outdoors.
Just love seeing green options in mainstream stores or wherever I happen to be shopping. This is exactly how environmentally-friendly goods should be marketed.
