Sustainability

Using environmentally friendly, recycled materials just makes sense.

We use 100% recycled materials

Your clothes tell a story. Our story begins with five plastic water bottles. Rather than use virgin materials, our clothes are made with 100% recycled post-consumer plastic water bottles. We use fabric constructed from sustainably recycled water bottles – so you can feel your best while practicing good environmental sustainability.

 
The bra by Meer: Made from recycled water bottles
 

Every day over 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away by Americans, amounting to over 19,000,000,000 plastic water bottles ending up in US landfills each year. While some may biodegrade over the course of centuries, most will remain forever, slowly leaching toxins and gases. Our fabrics are made using sustainable recycling techniques which reduce wasteful practices. How you might ask. Let us explain:

And the best part? We've got you covered 100%. You pay the cost of virgin materials and we will cover the difference. It's that simple. Really, no gimmicks here. We're just that proud and excited to make great clothes.

All natural treatment

Our sustainable fabrics are treated with natural, environmentally friendly biomass to reduce sweat and stain buildup, fight odor-causing bacteria, and increase breathability and moisture wicking. Our treatment is made from compostable, biodegradable, and nontoxic natural extract and introduced into the fabric in a liquid emulsion process during which time polysaccharides of the biomass are permanently absorbed into the fabric to guarantee longevity and effectiveness.

Top quality fabrics

Our fabrics are certified as Standard 100 through independent testing facility Oeko-Tex which focuses on regulation of hazardous substances – like heavy metals, pesticides, carcinogenic substances (like formaldehyde), and potentially toxic dyes.

Using 88% top quality rPET (recycled polyester) combined with 12% spandex gives a perfect fit and feel for every occasion – be it at the gym or behind a desk. Between rPET and interwoven, adaptive spandex fibers, our fabrics dynamically conform with the body at every movement. Pushing or pulling, standing or sitting, running or walking, the fabrics are responsive, supple, and stable, keeping you where you want to be at all times. Bottom line, we have you covered no matter what.

Prints and patterns

Our prints and patterns are customized in-house and applied through a diffusion technique and activated (or set) at temperatures in excess of 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The diffusion technique includes a coating which protects the pattern from discoloration and UV fade while making the pattern water-resistant.

Since polyester is inherently colorfast (doesn't bleed or fade) and the diffusion process activates the pattern directly into the material, our prints will remain vibrant as long as you keep wearing them.
