Yoga Pants: Eco-Friendly & Affordable Options to Buying Activewear
Americans are now working out more than ever. According to Yoga Journal’s 2012 survey, a whopping 20.4 million Americans practice yoga and 82 percent are women. Unless you’re into Naked Yoga, you’re going to need some coverage for your practice. Here are some Eco-friendly options to finding your next pair of yoga pants.
Overstock Yoga Pants – What happens to those mass-produced clothing from stores like Old Navy, H&M & Kohl’s that never even make it to the cash register? Unfortunately, many are shredded and dumped in landfills. Some make it to discount websites like LA based appleletics.com where you can purchase Old Navy and Kohl’s Brand overstock yoga pants at deep discounted prices.
|These are brand new, high quality yoga pants straight from the manufacturer’s overstock pile. Purchasing from companies like appleletics give you name brand quality activewear at low prices while helping reduce landfill waste. Price Range: $13.99 – $18.99|
Recycled Yoga Pants - Speaking of reducing landfill, Eco brands like Teeki is another great option. These fun and fashionable pants are made from recycled bottles and the entire recycling process is done in Los Angeles. Price Range: $66.00 – $75.00
eBay – eBay has been a great source for lightly used and new yoga pants. You’ll find that many retail stores also sell on eBay for even better discounts. Price Range: $.99 – whatever you’re willing to pay.
These options aren’t just for the yogi. If you are part of the 93 percent of activewear consumers that wear their apparel for activities other than exercise, consider these Eco-friendly options when buying your next pair of yoga pants.
