Sustainable Activewear & Gym Wear
Many of us don’t really give a thought to how our activewear was produced. As long as it looks good, performs well and lasts, we’re satisfied with our purchases. But what if you could buy high-quality, high-performance workout clothing that meets all Australian standards for ethical clothing manufacturing?
At d+k, we produce a range of sustainable activewear from our manufacturing facility in Brisbane. All our garments are designed, manufactured and shipped Australia wide by our committed dk active team in a purpose-built facility that even generates its own power! We’ve invested in the latest technology to give you some of the best quality activewear on the market and recycle and repurpose any surplus materials whenever possible. This means that we control the quality of our products and we control the manufacturing conditions, and we believe that’s what makes us a leading supplier of Australian made ethical activewear.
Sustainable Activewear for Every Activity
Whether you’re a runner, a gym bunny, a yogi or you just prefer to wear activewear as leisurewear; you’ll find an exciting range of workout clothing in our online store. We have garments to suit every body, shape and size and offer everything from sustainable leggings, pants, tops and jackets to sustainable yoga clothes.
We understand how the body moves and what makes a good piece of activewear so whether you’re choosing a pair of leggings that will stay put and stay opaque while you squat or you want a top that won’t ride up when you’re performing a downward facing dog, you’ll find your perfect piece of activewear in our online store.
Our Sustainable Workout Clothes are Designed with YOU in Mind
While our business is built on sustainability, we wouldn’t get far if our clothes weren’t fit for purpose. And that’s why we manufacture our garments from high-quality technical fabrics that move and breathe with you like a second skin.
But more than this, we believe that being active and having suitable clothing for all kinds of activities should be accessible to everyone, no matter what your body shape or size. So, when you shop at dk, you’ll find designs that will help to boost your confidence, love the body you’re in and engage in activities with an enthusiasm that comes from feeling stylish and comfortable.
We’re all about being inclusive and that’s why we’ve extended our range to include styles to accommodate growing baby bumps – we believe you shouldn’t stop exercising just because you’re pregnant or because you can’t find suitable pregnancy activewear!
Activewear With a Sustainable Mindset
Yes, we know that it’s possible to buy cheap activewear in Australia. But more times than not, those garments have been made halfway around the world with cheap labour and then flown all the way here for our consumption.
It’s time to become more responsible about the purchases we make – and that starts by purchasing goods made in Australia. So the next time you need new activewear, place an order with us and do your little bit for the environment.
Be Bold. Be Brave. Be You and be ethical in dk active Australian made sustainable activewear.
What is Sustainable-Made Activewear?
There’s a lot of talk at the moment about sustainable clothing and sustainable fashion and when it comes to finding a definition of sustainable clothing, there are many different answers. However, we think that most people would agree that sustainable clothing is all about garments that reduce the environmental impact. It’s clothing that’s made in a way that supports and nourishes the earth but also the lives of all the people who are involved in the process.
At d+k, our sustainable activewear is made right here in Australia to reduce the environmental impact. We also employ Australian workers who are paid well and who work in an environment that’s subject to stringent health and safety laws.
For this reason, we believe that we offer some of the best sustainable activewear available in Australia today because it’s made by Australians for Australians.
Why Buy Sustainable Activewear?
There are many reasons for choosing to buy sustainable athletic wear, especially if you’re trying to do your little bit to save the planet.
For starters, it’s better for the earth as it helps to reduce the enormous environmental footprint left behind by the fashion and sportswear industry. By electing to use organic fibres and sustainable fabrics, we decrease our carbon footprint and cut the amount of chemicals that are used to process, treat and dye fabrics.
While many clothing manufacturers are now trying to make things better for the workers in the Far East * Change to around the globe and other countries known for clothing manufacture, we do away with having things made abroad completely. All our garments are made right here in Brisbane, so we have complete control over the manufacturing process. Plus, as we’ve already mentioned, we do our utmost to recycle waste materials as much as possible.
And finally, it lasts longer. Choosing to buy high-quality, sustainable activewear will mean that you’ll get better quality garments that, with proper care, will last longer. This means that you won’t have to replace them so often and there’ll be less waste going into landfill.
