Not only are these leggings built for performance as well as comfort, but we made sure we took all the measures to build the right relationships with our manufacturer to create products that are also environmentally friendly.
A Factory Partnership We’re Proud Of: A family-owned garment factory in Colombia. Eighty percent of the employees are single working mothers or heads of households, providing much-needed income for women supporting their family. All employees earn at least minimum wage, and 70% of the employees earn above that. The factory provides important wellness initiatives for the employees, including on-site medical services and routine stretching exercises throughout each day.
Our Eco-Forward Efforts: We were careful to choose a fabric mill with state-of-the-art water treatment and recycling systems, reducing waste by more than 80%. And we went a step farther in our waste-reduction efforts: Our barre3 Signature Scrunchie is made from fabric remnants of our legging, saving the scraps from being discarded in a landfill. What’s more, sourcing our legging (and scrunchie) from the Western Hemisphere helps reduce carbon emissions.
