As consumers become more conscious of where their fashion comes from, we’re beginning to see more ethically sourced and produced products hit the market. Just last month our friends at Rothy’s made a splash with the announcement of their waste-free shoes, which are made of recycled filament fiber derived from ground-up plastic water bottles. The startup also leverages 3D knitting, a process that essentially eliminates waste from the manufacturing process.
Enter now Scoria, an environmentally-friendly and imaginative yoga apparel startup designed with a child-like imagination. Created by Yara Kamal, a Toronto-based art teacher, graphic designer, and yogi, Scoria invites you to explore a world of magic and wonder. The clothing company’s mats are made from non-slip, biodegradable cork, while their leggings are made from 86% recycled yarns derived from post-consumer plastic bottles, not unlike Rothy’s footwear.
Despite being made from recycled bottles, the pants still have all the technical features you’ve come to expect from your yoga pants, including moisture-wicking and antibacterial properties.
As if all that wasn’t enough, the startup has also partnered with Feeding Children Everywhere, an organization dedicated to eliminating hunger globally. A portion of each donation goes towards putting meals in hungry children’s bellies in 49 countries across the world.
