💥 Got some new all over print clothing live on the site: Tree Tribe Summer Shorts.

They're made from the same comfy upcycled fabric as our Leggings.

These aren't really for me personally 😃 but I do wear our leggings (great for mountain climbing, or leg day, or under some jeans when it's really cold)... so Kristine our Instagram manager tried em out, took a hike and gave some feedback.

Here's what she said:

I think the patterns are matched up perfectly and they fit great, precisely as expected.

I've tried them out running and at the gym and they're great. They don't move around a ton and are that same wonderful soft and stretchy like the leggings.

Hiking pics coming soon!

What is upcycled material?

Upcycling is using old materials to make something new. Like recycling, but giving the material a new life and a new identity.

I just had a conversation today about how only about 25% of plastic bottles get recycled... the rest stay on Earth ☹️

This is one reason I like upcycled materials for synthetic clothing / active wear. You get the same performance benefits and long lasting quality, but using upcycled materials gives the recycling industry more action.

We want to support more recycling because a higher demand for recycled / upcycled materials leads to more recycling.

If you're unsure how upcycled polyester feels, guess what it feels exactly the same as virgin polyester 👍

If you want to see some real life pics of our upcycled active wear, check out our IG action shots feed.

Check em out

If you want to check out any of our upcycled polyester all over print clothes, we have 3 collections: Summer Shorts, Leggings, and Sports Bras.

By the way we take requests (that's why we came out with these shorts 😃)... if you have any requests or feedback you can always hit us up.

Bamboo Straws: What's the Big Deal?

It's something you never really pay any attention to: you order a soda or a milk shake, or even just a water and the waiter always lays something next to the glass - a straw. While we all know that plastic straws are seriously damaging our planet (think 500 MILLION plastic straws used per day, most ending up in landfills*), we don't always talk about the alternatives to being able to use your straw...in a sustainable way. 🌱
