Sportswear, but make it fun (and ethical!) (and recycled!)
Introducing our Codie Leggings - made from 88% Recycled Polyester (from plastic bottles) and 12% Elastane. Great stretch, silky soft fabric in a wonderful rich Teal!
Recycled polyester is great because...
- it saves plastic bottles from landfill or the sea
- it's super soft
- less energy is used to create polyester yarn from recycled bottles than is needed to create brand new polyester yarn from oil
But nothing is perfect....
- all polyester garments shed microfibres when washing them. To prevent this, use a guppy bag to catch the microfibres - we sell them at a small loss to keep the price accessible, get one here > guppy bag

The leggings were a gift for my yoga teacher daughter who absolutely loves them. She is thrilled with the comfort, stretch and colour. The fact that they are made from recycled plastic is the icing on the cake.
These are perfect. I’m a runner and our club colour is teal! Always on the lookout for teal coloured running gear and the fact these are made from recycled bottles makes them even better. I’ve recommended them to all my friends at running club.
