I am all about sustainable clothing these days, way more than ever before. Although my priority is to reuse and not buy if I am given the choice. However, I am a fitness fanatic and I have struggled to find sustainable sportswear that is practical, looks good and stands the test of time.

The black yoga pants and top make yoga a breeze and are lightweight so if you break a sweat, they don’t feel hot. They are perfect for everything from downward dog to cat pose. I am not the most flexible (I blame all the running
