At MoveActive, we believe the future of our planet and the fashion industry depends on our company’s commitment to the environment. We’re committed to constantly evolving our business to reach our goal of becoming a market leading sustainable business.
In 2023, our hard work was recognised, as our Luxe Recycled Yoga Mat won bronze in the Best Yoga/Mat Accessory category in the Clean and Conscious Awards and our Luxe Eco Cork Yoga Mat and Organic Cotton Classic Low Rise Grip Socks were also named as finalists.
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 packing 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.
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, conserving water and energy, while also reducing use of pesticides.
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.
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 material. The use of cork, a renewable resource, aligns with climate action goals and supports eco-conscious consumers in their choices.
While we are proud of our commitment to sustainability, we recognise there is a still a long way to go to go in our mission to become a truly eco-conscious business. We are constantly researching ways to become more sustainable; through introducing more eco-friendly materials, onboarding new green factory partners and reducing waste. As a business, we are dedicated to the ongoing pursuit of innovative, environmentally friendly practices and products, ensuring that every step we take contributes to a greener, healthier future.
