Following up on our womenswear edit, here’s our guide to sustainable activewear brands for men. As always in order to keep microplastics out of our oceans, try and prioritise natural fibers where you can. If you need to buy clothes made of polyester, make sure it is of the recycled kind and wash your gym clothes in a specifically designed bag that will catch microplastics, such as the Guppyfriend.
