Hey there owners!
When we lace up our trainers and gear up for a workout, it's about more than just breaking a sweat. It's about making choices—choices that impact not just our health, but the health of our planet. Enter polyester, the go-to fabric for most of our activewear. It's durable, it's flexible, and it's... problematic.
Polyester comes from a not-so-evironmentally-friendly source: oil. The process to create this fabric isn't just a thirst for resources; it's also a significant source of pollution, churning out greenhouse gases like it's a competition. And that's before we even talk about laundry day. Washing these clothes sends microplastics downstream, which isn't exactly what we want to contribute to the environment. And this year, for the first time ever, microplastics were found in human blood.
But we're here with good news! There's a simple, stylish way to keep your eco-footprint as light as your running shoes: second-hand activewear. By choosing second-hand activewear, you're not only giving these clothes a new life, but you're also reducing the demand for new production—and that's a big deal.
You get to
- Prevent New Oil Extractions
- Prevent New Carbon Production
- Save Money
- Prevent Clothing from going into landfill.
Here at OWNI, we believe in second chances, not just for people, but for clothes too. Our collection of second-hand activewear isn't just about being thrifty; it's about being thoughtful.
