Sweaty Betty

If you’ve already bought your reusable straw, water bottle, and tote bag, you’ll want to sit down for the latest green-team announcement: Sweaty Betty just officially dropped its first pair of eco-friendly leggings. 

The brand’s newest compression design, the Super Sculpt Leggings (Buy It, $110, are made from an exclusive fabric that’s created by repurposing post-consumer PET plastic bottles into a stretchy, recycled yarn. 

Slightly thicker than the brand’s other textiles, the new fabric is not only perfect for chillier temps in the fall but totally squat-proof, too (no see-through leggings here!). Plus, you’ll feel like a superhero saving the environment every time you remember your one pair of leggings recycled seventeen (!!!) plastic water bottles.

Sweaty Betty

Despite plenty of awesome updates, you can still expect the same Sweaty Betty basics, like sweat-wicking and quick-drying fabric that’s machine washable.The new style, currently only available in a trendy rustic camo pattern, also has side pockets and an extra-wide waistband with an adjustable drawcord.

Even though the leggings just hit the shelves this month, reviewers are already super pumped about the new release. One five-star reviewer summed it up: “Wow! I own a lot of leggings (oops!), but this pair are by far one of the best pairs I have ever owned! They're high-waisted and hold you in all the right places, make your legs look super toned and long, and have a side pocket—perfect for your phone or after yoga snack. They feel super soft and the color is so vibrant. The best part by far has to be the fact [that] they are made with recycled yarns!! What more could you want from a legging?!”

Of course, Sweaty Betty isn’t the only brand hopping on the green bandwagon and innovating its products to be eco-friendly. Plenty of other companies, including Outdoor Voices and Girlfriend Collective, also offer workout gear crafted from recycled plastic. Considering most workout apparel is so comfortable you can sleep, lounge, and sweat in it, these items are a great way to start moving your wardrobe towards more sustainable habits.
