H&M's New Conscious Sportswear Collection

 

Five years ago, H&M launched it's Conscious collection, which has since expanded to increase beauty and party wear, in an effort to up their sustainable credentials. The latest items to be added to the range? Sportswear.

The newly released active collection is made up of 15 products with leggings, bras, hoodies and tops, all in a minimal and aesthetically pleasing palette of dark, earthy tones, and the best bit is they're all made up of predominantly recycled polyester and elastane.

We checked out the range in-person and, whilst there's some elements that feel not-so-premium like the stretch and thickness of the tights, they're super affordable and look wicked, plus you'll be buzzing from supporting the industry's more responsible production methods. Just note that these might be more practical for gym and yoga classes rather than long distance running or a gymnastics sesh.

 
 
The aim is to give customers a stylish, conscious sports collection. Blending function with sustainable thinking and fashion is the way forward.
