Atayne's Athletic Apparel is Made from Garbage and Waste

Atayne, a small performance apparel company founded by Jeremy Litchfield in Portland, Maine, makes all of its athletic clothing from garbage. (In our eco-conscious world, is that even surprising?)

Atayne’s sports apparel is made from recycled polyester, which comes from post-consumer plastic bottles, and recycled cotton. As sports clothes often get sweaty and smell, Atayne uses naturally-derived chitosan (a polysaccharide that can purify waste) to eliminate odor. According to Springwise, Atayne puts people and the planet first rather than focusing only on convenience and aesthetics. Stats for Trashy Sports Tees Trending: Older & Chilly
