our responsibility

We’re on a journey to create a more sustainable future; it starts with how we treat our planet and people.

Our goal is to increase the number of products made from either natural or recycled fabrics using sustainable processes. We currently stand at 21% but we must do better.

Our eco-friendly fabrics

We source responsibly and use sustainable materials wherever possible and we are always looking for eco alternatives and innovations.

Recycled Cotton

Our Italian Fleece is made using discarded cotton fibres left over from manufacturing.

Econyl

All of our swimwear is made using ECONYL, a regenerated nylon made from synthetic waste such as fishing nets, industrial plastic and fabric scraps.

Bamboo

Bamboo uses no pesticides or fertilisers and a 1/3 less water than cotton

Merino

Merino wool is a natural fibre that is environmentally friendly, biodegradable and regulates body temperature.

Organic Cotton

We are proud to use pesticide free organic cotton which uses less water and produces around 46% less CO2 than conventional cotton.

From plastic bottles to Polyester

To make our Recycled Super Sculpt Leggings we take 17 post-consumer plastic bottles, transform them into pellets and then weave them into a high performance yarn.

Engineered to last

We are proud that our activewear is crafted from highly technical fabrics. We source, create and test these fabrics to make sure they are durable, wash well and last for years.

"At Sweaty Betty, sustainable thinking is at the centre of everything do. We are committed to making sustainable activewear to not only empower women but to protect our planet, and have a positive impact on our environment and community."

- Willemijn Bos, VP of Design

It's all about the 3 Rs:
Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.

Reduce

We will remove all single use plastic from our business by 2025.

As a brand, we’re committed to reducing plastic waste in every aspect of the company. We are working with our suppliers and warehouse to remove single use plastic, transitioning to biodegradable or recycled plastic alternative.

Recycle

To give new life to old activewear through rehoming and recycling.

You've saved 10 000+ pairs of leggings from landfill since October 2019. Help us save more by bringing your unwanted pairs in-store and we'll recycle them with SOEX.

Who are SOEX?

SOEX have worked for over 40 years to give unwanted goods a new purpose. Everyday, their factory in Germany process around 400-450 tonnes of textiles. Once it reaches the factory, it's sorted in to categories: rewear, reuse or recycle. SOEX’s strict zero-waste policy means absolutely nothing will be discarded of, but rather find a new life.
