Relax in These 17 Sustainable Sweatshirts and Sweatpants

Hoodies, crewnecks, oversized or just right, it seems as though sweatshirts and sweatpants have dominated the fashion scene no matter how you wear them. For some, the “sweat set” is a statement on its own, while for others, it functions as an everyday layer, especially during the winter months. No matter how or where you wear them, comfort, versatility, and longevity are non-negotiables when it comes to our beloved sweats. Longevity and comfort of people, the planet, and animals should also be a priority, so we’re here to help in your search for sustainable sweatshirts and sweatpants. We’ve rounded up 17 of our favourite brands from around the world that are prioritising eco-friendly materials like organic cotton and hemp, while ensuring living wages and giving back to the community.

Below you can find a vintage inspired raglan pullover in a range of trendy colours by MATE the Label (US), a staple black hoodie made from 100% organic cotton by ASKET (Sweden), or something a bit different with sustainable linen joggers by A.BCH (Australia). Happy relaxing!
