Ethical activewear favourite Girlfriend Collective has released a collection of sustainable socks and underwear.
The beautifully shot campaign features women that take action to champion equality, access, and opportunity for BIPOC communities and includes intersectional environmentalist Leah Thomas and historian, and educator Blair Imani.
The campaign showcases women with strong voices who are having a positive impact on the world and each of them has received a grant to continue the work they’re doing in their spaces.
Recycled & Recylable
The collection is made with 80% recycled plastic bottles (RPET), 20% spandex and every piece is recycled and recyclable through their ReGirlfriend program, where you can return your old leggings and garments to Girlfriend to be recycled and receive $15 towards a new purchase.
“A collection of sustainable staples designed for your body and every body, today and every day.”
As always with Girlfriend, the range is size-inclusive offering XXS to 6XL and features seamfree thong and brief styles while the socks come in a wide range of colours.
From June 25th until supplies last, Girlfriend will also donate 100% of the net proceeds from this launch to The Loveland Foundation, The Okra Project, and the NAACP Legal & Defense Fund — at a minimum of $20k each.
