Organic Cotton + Scholarship Yoga Apparel

Running Sneakers (size E wide!) | New Balance

Not ethically produced

WOW! I found this in my drafts and realized that I never published it. Well, as some people, in some places say, “better late than never.”

Okay, so I would never consider myself a gym rat nor an exercise addict (no, that was the old me). Now, I work out for the adrenaline rush, because when I don’t I feel gross, and because I know that it is a great way to control stress (thank you, grad school). As an ethical fashion blogger, I make my casual fashion purchasing decisions ethically, however, I haven’t yet ventured into exercise apparel. When I received an email from the ecofashion exercise apparel and yogawear brand Satva, asking to review a few pieces, of course I said yes! I especially find their scholarship program (India GiveBack Program) cool because it provides education scholarships to children of farmers who harvest the cotton used in this apparel! These photos are old so they don’t sell this style anymore, but I actually have a pair of their new leggings (which I did a post on) and I prefer because the cut hugs better and the cotton is softer to the touch (so soft I use them to sleep). haha.

What are your favorite ethically made active wear brands?

Product Review

5/5 stars for this top! The organic cotton knit is a breathable medium weight which hugs your body just enough so that any upside-down workouts will not have your belly showing. It’s comfortable enough to sleep in. I also love that there are two removable cup inserts which means (yes, ladies) no bra! Not to mention the rad back design, and if you are a sweater, like me, these will be very helful for back ventilation. 😉

3/5 starts for these capris. Although I aboslutely love the cut outs and how it hugs my large calves and thighs, the hip-waist cut is too straight to properly support my bottom.  I took these for a run and had to keep tugging the waistband for them to stay up. I would recommend the bottoms for people with small bottoms (AKA the less shapey ladies) and for those who do exercise which involves less rapid movement.



Wishing you a blessed and beautiful July,
