It's #SustainableSunday and boy do I ever have the greatest brand ever to share with you! In a recent flurry of following yogis and yoga brands on Instagram, I discovered Inspire Active Wear and immediately fell in love. "Why?" you ask. Because designer Barbara Northrup takes her inspiration from nature, turns that inspiration into print and then creates leggings OUT OF RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES with them! For real... it's the coolest thing ever!
The whole idea behind the brand is really to connect with nature while helping to preserve it by using a material that helps to keep junk out of landfills. In addition to this eco-awesomeness, the leggings are made in the USA by people who earn a fair living, and as an extra boost, they have an inspirational quote printed in the inside of the waist band (mine say "Live what you Love"). My matching tank is also an inspiration with the quote "Don't wait for a Miracle, Be One" emblazoned across it!
You can't really beat wearing a sustainable and inspirational product that is also a work of art. My leggings were inspired by cockle shells being washed around the beach by the wind and waves. I also love these because, while I've styled them into a yoga/workout outfit here, I have several ideas on ways I can wear these leggings to work and then head straight to the gym without doing much outfit changing!
Basically... I love everything about what is going on here!
What's sustainable about this outfit?
: the leggings are made from material that's created from recycled plastic bottles
: all the jewelry is handmade
