Take 5: Ethical Active Wear

Whether you’re making the most of your daily outdoor exercise or enjoying time at home on your yoga mat, treat yourself to new ethical and sustainable active wear from five of our favourite brands for that extra motivation.

Organic Basics

Organic Basics is a beautifully simple brand for both men and women. We love the minimalist designs and colour palette, and their Organic Basics Fund donates a portion of their profits to non-profit organisations who strive for positive change, through funding applications. Active wear prices start at £32.


Asquith make everything from sportswear to loungewear, underwear to jumpsuits that you’ll want to save for a special occasion. They also have a maternity active wear range made from eco-friendly bamboo and organic cotton, making it really soft and breathable. Prices start at £39.

People Tree

One of the pioneers of ethical and sustainable fashion, People Tree have added active wear to their already extensive range of women’s clothing. We recommend dedicating some time to explore their clothing range ahead of summer – we’re dreaming of light cotton dresses and printed trousers. Prices start at £12.


RubyMoon specialise in ‘gym to swim’ sportswear. Their strapline, ‘Activewear for Activists’ sums up the driving force behind the brand, and to date they’ve invested in over 1,000 female entrepreneurs, reduced carbon emissions by 42% and send all of their products in 100% recycled and biodegradable mailing bags. Find out more about their Impact strategy here. Prices start at £55.


Milochie make their sportswear from wood-pulp from sustainably harvested Beech trees. It’s breathable, naturally anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic, and their range comes in fantastically bright prints – we love their Stockholm collection, the perfect pastel for spring. Prices start at £20.
