Sundried’s Sustainable Sportswear: A photoshoot fighting against plastic pollution

With the recycling of plastic on the rise, it’s not difficult to understand why those who care about the environment would want that to reflect in their fashion too. That’s why Sundried have activewear for all eco fashionistas.

With an EU target for the UK to recycle at least 50% of household waste by 2020, this gym location photo shoot showcasing what Sundried have on offer may give you the motivation you need to recycle plastic – doing good for the environment while feeling good about your health.

Why exactly? Well, they make their range from 100% recycled plastic bottles and coffee grounds.

Athletes and personal trainers such as triathletes and ambassadors, Leanne James and Alice Hector are often spotted ‘sporting’ Sundried.

Daniel said: “All our ambassadors have a genuine love for the brand, they wear and promote us and in return we promote them. Our ambassadors are the face of the brand.”

He hopes to grow even further by continuing to use the latest developments in technology to ensure the range performs at its best.

The collections certainly have the Eco Style approval as they help you look stylish while the coffee element means no matter how hard you work, you’ll still smell fresh.
