The story.

CrossFitters love a good pair of leggings, and we’re always looking for the next best pair. Now you can put your money where your mouth is and support an environmentally friendly cause when you shop for your next pair. We’re talking leggings made from upcycled plastics from the ocean.

For those unaware, upcycling is when you take waste — in this case plastic — and you produce a product of better quality.

Water bottle (converted into) leggings = upcycling. Got it? Cool.

Those can’t be cute.

But they totally are.

Adidas teamed up with Parley for the Oceans and Wanderlust to create a seriously stylish lineup of yoga onesies, crop tops, and leggings — inspired by vintage surf apparel and the power of the oceans, and all made from Parley Ocean Plastic™ upcycled materials.

This collaboration follows the Adidas UltraBoost lineup we saw last year — where they created a more sustainable running shoe with 11 plastic bottles used to create each pair of shoes.

Stay green, y’all.

Sustainability is now more important than ever. While many food brands have been on the train for some time, we’re pretty stoked to see so many companies doing their part in the fashion and clothing industry, too. Kudos!
