I’ve been on a hunt for awesome eco-friendly and sustainable companies when I came across Icebreaker.
It’s an activewear company using merino wool instead of synthetics in crafting high quality garments. This New Zealand brand prides itself on being transparent and ethical from sourcing their wool to delivering the final product to its consumers. They have a Baacode on most of their items which traces the fabric back to its source farms. It’s pretty neat to see videos in which you learn about the farmers and their farms.
Go to the Icebreaker website and enter the Baacode for my shirt: 458DDAE65.
As for the clothes, I got to try the V-Neck Tech Short Sleeve t-shirt in XS. The 150 gm is one of the thinnest and lightest weight fabrics they offer. Seemingly sheer with a burnout look, it has a relaxed fit and it feels fairly soft. I love that it’s a workout shirt but it looks and feels like a regular tee.
To test the durability and quality of this shirt, I wore it for 5 days while exercising. Between indoor rock climbing sessions and taiko drumming practice, this shirt really held up! Wicked away sweat and not even a twinge of smelliness. I know, it sounds pretty gross wearing the same shirt for 5 days in a row, but honestly…it still feels and smells brand new!
I was pretty skeptical at first, but now I’m a convert. A company that uses natural materials and has a vision to coexist with our environment…what more can one ask for?
