Can plastic bottles be linked to yoga?

Meet Anastasia behind Yogacycled, an eco-friendly activewear brand, 

"....The name Yogacycled originates from 'yoga' and 'recycled'. We believe we can become a part of the solution to one of the greatest environmental challenges – plastic waste in landfill sites and in the world’s oceans. We have created an activewear line made from recycled plastic water bottles. With every product we sell, we commit to clean-up the landfill and oceans of the world."

A few years ago Anastasia had the chance to move to beautiful Hainan Island in China. Hainan Island is known as the Hawaii of Asia. There Anastasia found her love and passion for yoga. Nice weather and soft sandy beaches inspired her to do yoga every day and she has enjoyed every moment of it.

After witnessing one of the largest hurricanes in Hainan’s history Anastasia saw a huge amount of plastic waste spread over the beaches and coastline. This really upset her and this is where the idea of making sustainable activewear out of recycled plastic bottles was born.

Yogacycled offers you unique hand drawn designs and safe and comfortable activewear produced from recycled plastic and suitable for different activities, such as yoga, fitness, bike, running. Yogacycled yoga leggings look amazing, perform well, and make the difference.
