Recycling with Yoga Democracy

Recycling with Yoga Democracy

The innovative activewear line out of California

Estimates suggest that we dispose upwards of 1 million tonnes of textiles a year in the UK alone, with at least half of these dumped fabrics bearing recycling potential. These textiles do not evaporate into thin air, quite the contrary. Man-made fibres will not decompose, they will occupy landfills, threatening to poison local ground water supplies with chemicals believed to be up to 200 times as toxic as raw sewage. Yoga Democracy not just an activewear line but also a movement that is focused on textile recovery in a bid to reverse environmental degradation – good for your mind, body and soul.

Founder and CEO of Yoga Democracy, Natalie Oldroyd, shares REV’s commitment of connecting consumers to the process of creating their clothes. Her company is built upon eco friendly foundations with 95% of the fabric that they use derived from recycled fibres such as plastic bottles and used fishing nets.

"Yoga Democracy take pride in their socially responsible approach to producing garments and reflect the fundamental principles of yoga."

Leggings are dyed in-house using a zero water, non toxic method and all the paper that is used in the process is recycled. Yoga Democracy is almost 100% vertically integrated with the complete creative operation blossoming under one roof: from illustrations of the designs to the sweatshop free sewing process.

Yoga Democracy take pride in their socially responsible approach to producing garments and reflect the fundamental principles of yoga. The Law of Karma states that every action generates a force of energy that returns to you in kind, and when you choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of your karma is happiness and success. Not only does Yoga Democracy work in tandem with the environment, but they produce fabulous designs to bring more funk in to your flow – bringing you into alignment with the rhythm of the cosmos.
