Easy Moves

For an active, on-the-go lifestyle, some stylish pieces that move

Eco Speedo

Speedo’s new PowerFlex Eco spring line features suits that are made from an innovative fiber called Econyl, crafted from 100 percent upcycled pre- and post-consumer waste nylon yarn. The company has a partnership with Econyl’s parent company, Aquafil, and created a pilot program that reuses all the waste scraps left over after PowerFlex Eco swimsuits are made—in essence, recycling the recycled scraps to create this season’s new line. PowerFlex Eco is 30 percent more resistant to fiber breakage and three times more compressive than the original PowerFlex, which means it is super sturdy, good for the earth and great for your silhouette.

So far, Speedo has prevented approximately one ton of scraps from heading to landfill and, considering how many tons of clothes end up in landfill each year, that is huge. speedousa.com

Phat Buddha

What do 2014 Olympic Gold Medal figure-skating champion Meryl Davis, champion boxer Alicia Napoleon, celebrity trainer Mark Jenkins and award-winning dancer/choreographer Jodi Melnick have in common? They’re all brand ambassadors for Phat Buddha, the hip, stylish line of uniquely beautiful bras, tops, leggings, sweats, shorts and more, which are as comfortable as a second skin.

Founded by Alissa Benishai, after three months of intensive yoga training in Hawaii sparked a career change. The line features seamless pieces in rich colors and deep neutrals, made with eco-conscious fibers like modal. Benishai created “one size for all,” with designs that fit “any body” and eliminate body-image issues for size-conscious consumers since "the number doesn't matter; if you're healthy."
