Fashion is a fun but wasteful business. In fact, it is estimated that the fashion industry is responsible for 10% of the planet's annual global carbon pollution. But rather than trying to outrun the problem, why not jog into sustainable activewear that looks good, lasts longer, and doesn't trash the planet?

From bras to shorts and everything in between, we've pulled together workout clothes that'll keep the planet healthy long after you cool down. These are our picks for the best sustainable women's activewear.
