A pair of leggings are a wardrobe essential for any woman, but the best ones aren’t just super soft and comfortable to wear, they also prioritize sustainable production methods. Choosing organic bamboo fabric for your workout leggings reduces your impact on the planet by avoiding chemical processing and by supporting local factories and communities. Here are some of our favorite brands offering eco-friendly, vegan yoga tights that feel great against the skin.
A staple for any activewear wardrobe, these leggings are made from a combination of organic bamboo viscose, cotton and spandex for the perfect fit. They are opaque, non see-through and have a covered elastic waistband. They are OEKO-TEX certified, hypoallergenic and have antibacterial properties to keep your skin feeling fresh all day long. They are also moisture wicking and breathable, which is ideal for yoga and other sweaty activities.
Green Apple is an ethical brand that uses bamboo and organic cotton to create comfortable yoga clothes, tights and other activewear for women, men and children. Their leggings are organic, have no seams and are a thicker fabric to provide full coverage and support during exercise. The natural fibres of bamboo are softer against the skin and have a rounder structure so they won’t irritate the legs like synthetic fabrics can. The bamboo is also a fast-growing plant that requires less water for growth and during manufacturing, and the material is easily regenerated without the need for chemicals.
Another sustainable brand, Thought creates versatile and comfortable activewear that keeps you secure using their signature stretchy organic bamboo viscose fabric. Their leggings are a mix of 70% bamboo viscose, 20% organic cotton and 10% spandex so they are thick enough for light exercise, but still super soft. They are opaque, non see-through, and have a covered elastic waistband for the perfect fit. Their clothing is designed to support women’s bodies and minds with their conscious collections and the brand is committed to responsible design and sustainable sourcing and supports TRAID, which minimizes, improves and transforms the environmental impact of fashion.
Another sustainable label, Milkbarn makes buttery soft organic bamboo baby and toddler clothing. The US-based company is dedicated to supporting local families and minimizing their impact on the world through breathable premium organic bamboo fabric and fair-trade practices. They are WRAP certified, meaning they’re made in a safe and ethical environment and ensure the working conditions are healthy for the people making their garments. women’s bamboo leggings
