Ethical, plus-size activewear US brand, Girlfriend Collective offers great products at affordable prices!
Being eco-friendly is at the top of this brand’s priorities, and virtually their entire collection is made from recycled materials such as post-consumer recycled bottles to create compression bras and leggings, but also recycled fishing nets and other waste are used to make Lite leggings, while the t-shirts and tank tops are 100% cupro, a delicate fiber obtained from the waste from the cotton industry.
Not to mention that the packaging is also 100% recycled and recyclable, which is great!
When it comes to traceability and social impact, the company claims that the fabrics are made from recycled materials in a Taiwan facility that specializes in eco-friendly, high-quality fabrics, then cut and sewn at another SA8000 certified factory in Hanoi, in Vietnam, which guarantees fair wages, health and safety conditions and zero forced or child labor.
Another big plus is the inclusiveness of the sizes this brand offers, you can buy products from XXS to 6XL so they really cover all different bodies and sizes so we can all feel included!
