About the Brand
Girlfriend Collective is an ethically made activewear brand that designs for all body types. Their products —including the packaging— are made of eco-friendly materials, like recycled polyester and nylon. They also work with recycled plastic bottles! When choosing them, you are preventing more material going unnecessary to landfills. Girlfriend Collective works alongside factories in Taiwan and Vietnam all SA8000 certified, which guarantees fair living wages, human working conditions and zero forced or child labor. In addition, they give donate to civil rights organizations such as The Loveland Foundation and The Okra Project.
Are they Fair Trade or Paid a living Wage: made from recycled materials in our facility in Taiwan that specializes in eco-friendly and high-quality textiles, then cut-and-sewn in our SA8000 certified factory in Hanoi, Vietnam, that guarantees fair wages, safe and healthy conditions, and zero forced or child labor.
Circularity: Compressive Leggings + Bras: Made from 79% recycled polyester (or RPET) and 21% spandex, our leggings are made from 25 recycled post-consumer bottles and our bras are made from 11. LITE Leggings: Made from recycled fishing nets and other waste using ECONYL® yarn, our LITE fabric is made up of 83% recycled nylon and 17% spandex. Reusable Pouch: Our reusable pouch is made with the same RPET as our bras and leggings. So not only is it reusable and adorable, it’s just as good for the earth as the rest of our line.
Cruelty Free: Y
Environmental Conscious Processing: Reduced amount of Water, Waste, Carbon and Pollution: Packaging: Our packaging is 100% recycled and recyclable, so don’t throw it away! Our recycled fabric is certified Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, the world’s leader in testing fabrics to regulate harmful substances. Our fabric is dyed with eco-friendly dyes and the wastewater is carefully cleaned and cooled before it is released. (We even donate the dye mud to a local pavement facility where it’s recycled into sidewalks and roads.) Our facility should be the standard for how wastewater should be treated. Every single drop of water that is used to dye our fabric gets sent to our wastewater treatment plant literally 100 feet away from the machines. It doesn’t even have time to think about escaping.
