This year my goal is to be more focused on my well being. I want to be more conscious about what I eat and how much television and social media I consume. In addition, I want to make sure that I start being more eco-conscious when it comes to clothing. To be honest I never really thought about being eco-friendly when buying clothing. However, once I found out what eco-fashion was and how it impacts the world, I started becoming more interested in finding eco-conscious clothing.
What Is Eco-friendly Fashion
Eco-fashion is all about creating fashion that has a positive impact on the environment and social responsibility. It’s about changing the way clothing is made from beginning to end. Sustainable fashion deals with the social, cultural, ecological, and financial systems.
Plus Size Eco-Friendly Activewear
One of my go to shopping brands just started to include plus size eco-friendly activewear. Lane Bryant’s Livi Active now offers eco-chic activewear. The new collection has wicking technology, supportive stretch, and moisture resistance. Since working on my physical well being by getting outside and walking everyday, I decided to test out the new plus size eco-friendly activewear collection.
What’s cool about Livi Active’s new collection is that it’s made with sustainable, eco-friendly fabric. It was created with super-soft REPREVE® fiber made from recycled plastic bottles. Each pair contains 78% recycled plastic, or 23 recycled plastic bottles.
Livi Active did not sacrifice style, comfort, or quality with this collection. I ordered the Eco-Chic Wicking Active 7/8 Leggings. They’re so cute and soft to the touch. The leggings feature a colorblock splicing across the legs. Also there are pockets on the thigh. There’s an elastic waistband that is very comfortable and doesn’t pinch the skin.
The wicking leggings also come with a matching active tee which has a longer length and a v-neck opening. It even has a stretch fabric for comfort and its easy to move around in.
