Celebrating Earth Day With ALO Yoga, An Eco Brand the Cool Girls Pick
Anyone out there in love with yoga? Yup, us too. It’s an awesome practice that not only keeps you fit, but brings inner peace and relaxation as well. You feel good and you’re doing good for your body.
When we buy yoga gear, most of us probably have the same things in mind: the style, price of the product and the quality–but how often do we stop to think about what we’re leaving behind?
The fashion industry is the third most polluting industry in the world. It’s responsible for producing thousands of waste each year. Making fabric uses waster, energy, chemicals and other resources that we usually don’t think about (or ever see)–and surprisingly there are a few yoga brands out there that aren’t exactly ethical when it comes to practices.
Don’t worry though, we aren’t totally hopeless to the system. There are steps we can take to make shopping and yoga practices more ethical, less wasteful and overall better for mother nature. To help you align your “feel good” mantra, we sought out to find the most eco-friendly yoga gear we could find and discovered ALO Yoga. Named after the elements–air, land and ocean–ALO Yoga embodies innovative, eco-friendly fabrics, contemporary design and a great fit. Even their Los Angeles headquarters is solar powered, paper-free and they even have electric car charging stations in the parking lot.
