the sustainable fashion forum - sweat green summit - Portland wellness week

For many people, being eco-conscious means carrying a reusable straw, opting for clean beauty products and properly recycling their shipping boxes but there’s one aspect of eco-consciousness that’s often overlooked — what we wear — specifically what we wear when we move.

Despite being super comfortable, breathable and sweat-wicking, most activewear is made with unsustainable, resource-intensive materials that wreak havoc on our world, both in terms of natural resources, and often, human lives.

Which leaves us wondering:

What are the alternative eco-fabrics leading the way in the future of activewear and design?

How do brands choose sustainable materials that don’t compromise performance, fit or design?

What are the benefits and challenges of using recycled pre-consumer and post-consumer-waste in design? (eg. fabrics made with water bottles and fishing nets)

How can brands adjust their business model to avoid waste?

what are the end-of-life implications of fabrics used in activewear design?

How can material choices be adjusted to make recycling easier?

how does the cleaning of activewear impact the environment? Can components safely decompose without additives or oxo-degradability?

Learn the answers to these questions and so many more!

Hear from a panel of athletic brands, including Prana, Girlfriend Collective, Athleta and more — proving you don’t have to sacrifice performance, fit or style to be eco-conscious. Brunch on delicious bites and kombucha from our friends at Brew Dr. Kombucha and network with curiously passionate, like-minded individuals committed to creating a brighter future and so. much. more!

  • Panel discussion with athletic brands proving you don’t have to sacrifice performance, fit or style to be eco-conscious
