January here in the UK is, let's face it, a bit grey and dismal. I am not a huge fan of depriving myself of things I enjoy but cutting down on sugar, caffeine and alcohol is always a good idea. Rather than seeing the New Year as an endurance test of deprivation, I prefer to see it as a good time to re-assess my diet and exercise routine to try to minimise unhealthy habits.
I don't think that buying and consuming more is always the answer but in this case, a new pair of trainers or some nice new yoga leggings can be great motivation to get out and about and start as you mean to go on.
Here are our top 5 fair trade, eco friendly suppliers of beautiful organic clothing to kick start your year.
A Fair Trade company based in East Sussex, Gossypium make beautiful yoga clothes made from soft organic cotton.
Fashion-forward California based company Teeki makes sustainable yoga gear, now available in the UK. Each pair yoga leggings contains 25 plastic bottles and they have plenty of eco credentials.
Howies are a small active clothing company based in West Wales and their clothes are made from high quality organic cotton.
We love the bamboo basics from Braintree, originally based in Sydney Australia and now a London based company. Their website is really beautiful too!
