New York-based brand Baleaf Sports has launched its new Sustainable Line, which features products that decrease waste and protect the planet.
This launch is part of Baleaf’s commitment to achieving 100-per-cent sustainable products by 2035.
Designed to be versatile and easily worn on different occasions, the products are sourced from biodegradable and recyclable materials.
“Since our inception, Baleaf has remained committed to slow fashion. By making garments that are versatile and of high quality, Baleaf activewear lasts longer and can be worn in more scenarios,” said Lefee Xu, CEO of Baleaf.
“This allows people to downsize and streamline their activewear wardrobe in order tos their carbon footprint. In the future, we hope to work together with even more suppliers to shape a socially responsible activewear industry.”
Baleaf used to introduce its modal fabric made out of wood pulp from the beech tree last year, the brand currently expands its sustainability practice with recycled nylon and recycled polyester fibres sourced from plastic bottle waste and fishing nets.
The brand says that “for every ton of nets used, Baleaf saves seven barrels of crude oil, while every ton of plastic bottles used saves 8000 gallons of water.”
Baleaf’s Sustainable Line comes wrapped in a reusable bag made from recycled nylon and recycled polyester. The packaging is biodegradable and breaks down within three years so it does not contribute to waste or pollution.
