Socially and environmentally conscious workout clothing and footwear are widely available. As a general rule, select clothing made from organic or recycled materials that are great at wicking moisture, that contains a minimal amount of (if any) synthetic fibers like lycra and are created by companies with sustainable business models and fair labor practices.

Gaiam offers organic cotton and soy fiber blends that turn out remarkably comfortable sweatshirts and tees for women. Gaiam is most well-known for their widely available 100% organic cotton line of yoga wear.

Patagonia gives exercisers in pursuit of a more challenging and eco-friendly workout ensembles that may be just the right fit. Trail runners, hikers, and rock climbers will find a range of durable and stylish outfits made from previously used fibers, thanks to Patagonia’s 'fiber-to-fiber recycling system.’



GoLite works hard to put all materials, waste and otherwise, to good use. Somehow, these guys have managed to turn coconut shells into workout wear! GoLite's Web site has plenty of choices, for men and women, packaged in recycled materials.

Check out GreatGreenShoes to browse athletic shoes for men and women. You'll find recycled rubber and vegan materials, which make for comfortable and durable footwear.

Brooks, the Washington-based maker of running shoes, also promotes a biodegradable athletic shoe.

Get in good shape.

Make physically and environmentally eco-conscious choices.
