In 2009 our Founder Melissa Pain identified a gap in the market for grip socks that were stylish, functional and high-quality. Fast forward more than 14 years later and MoveActive is the leading pilates and yoga accessories brand in Australia and New Zealand, rapidly expanding globally with more than 6,000 local stockists. Born from the desire to create stylish, comfortable and functional grip socks for the modern pilates and yoga enthusiast, MoveActive is committed to constantly evolving and perfecting our design to ensure we stay ahead of trends.

 

We aim to deliver fashion-forward, elevated, durable styles that can be worn at home or in the studio.

Innovation & Sustainability

 

Sustainable Packaging

 

Since 2015, we've implemented sustainable packaging for our products, emphasising the use of eco-friendly materials. We employ biodegradable courier bags and opt for environmentally friendly packaging accessories, tape and bubble wrap. Our 'packaging for a purpose' policy ensures products are packaged in reusable mesh bags or with recycled cardboard contributing to waste reduction.

 

 

 

Recycled Polyester

 

In 2022, we began incorporating Recycled Polyester (RPET) into our Yoga and Reformer Mats. RPET is derived from discarded plastic bottles and fishing nets, diverting plastic waste from landfills and oceans. By reusing these materials, MoveActive actively participates in waste reduction and recycling.

 

 

Organic Cotton

 

Starting from March 2023, we have shifted towards using certified organic cotton in our grip sock collections. Organic cotton cultivation employs a sustainable approach that eliminates harmful chemicals, reducing environmental impact, and conserving water and energy, whilst also reducing the use of pesticides.

 

 

Eco Cork

 

In 2022, we introduced our Cork Range, This collection, including yoga and reformer mats, blocks, massage balls and rollers, utilises 100% natural cork, an eco-friendly and biodegradable materials. The use of cork, a renewable resource, aligns with climate action goals and supports eco-conscious consumers in their choices.
