Eco-Chic Fashion: Alo Athletic Apparel

I have to say, I’ve got enough guilt that I’m trying to work off from holiday indulgences without worrying about my workout gear adding to the Earth’s climate change issues. Luckily, I don’t have to worry about that and I’m passing my little solution onto you: meet Alo Sportswear.

When I say eco-chic fashion, this is a company that truly puts the planet first. All the exceedingly stylish workout gear is made from planet friendly materials like bamboo, which is one of our planet’s most sustainable materials as well as a material that naturally wicks moisture away from the body and has antimicrobial, hypoallergenic and breathable properties without the addition of chemicals or additives. Other materials used are modal and organic cotton. Again, all earth-friendly yoga and Pilates gear that delivers on looks and planet-lovin’ style. Can’t beat it.

The company also puts its money where its mouth is when it comes to its own carbon footprint. From  a headquarters that uses solar power to a hybrid company car and offering organic food and beverage options to their employees, Alo is a company that truly walks the walk and has stylish goods to show for it.

The outfit shown is my new favorite way to get into Downward-Facing Dog. It’s a Seamless Stripe Tank ($48) combines with these sleek and fabulous Blocked Waist Pant ($58). They have many styles available, include men’s fashion so check them out.

A healthy body and a healthy planet? Sounds like a win-win to me.
