If you are like millions of people who purchase branded workout wear sold in sportswear shops online and web clothing stores, think again, as the current sportswear fashion is dictated by the chain of big sports brands. If you search for the sustainable sportswear brand, we bet you’ll find none of the biggies featuring on the search engines. The result may surprise you and all.
The results aren’t any different for ‘organic sportswear’. The results do reflect that not all big high-intensity sportswear brands care about sustainability, and also consumers seem to overlook the fact without minding about the negative effects of synthetic fibers on their health, particularly skin.
The disadvantages of synthetic fibers are far too many. They are not sustainable. They are too smelly after use. They are not good for the environment around and our planet. A lot on the non-sustainability of synthetic fibers has been discussed in the previous blogs. From a health point of view, synthetic fibers can result in allergies and eczema blisters and chafe. They are non-renewable and require massive energy to produce.
On the other hand, organic cotton is extremely soft and comfortable, highly sustainable and smells good and stays fresh all day long as it is anti-bacterial. The impact of organic cotton on the planet is less. There is a reduced risk of skin allergy. It also leads to a balanced natural ecosystem. It is healthy, traceable, controlled, certified and vegan-friendly.
In conclusion, it can be easily understood that organic cotton is the most preferred choice for high-intensity sportswear. We recommend organic cotton even if you sweat profusely as it has good drying properties.
