Girlfriend Collective's New LITE Legging Repurposes Ocean Waste

The presence of plastic in the ocean is a visible one that shows the amount of waste that does not properly get handled at the end of its life, which is leading many brands to now reclaim materials like plastic bottles and recycled fishing nets so that they may be taken out of the water and mindfully repurposed.

Girlfriend Collective recently added to its collection of athletic apparel with the all-new LITE legging, which is touted as being made from the brand's "lightest fabric ever," which is made form recycled fishing nets. The fashionable and eco-friendly LITE High-Rise Leggins is offered in four colors: Midnight, Smoke, Black and Plum.

While this new clothing piece from Girlfriend Collective specifically tackles the issue of ocean waste, other legging styles from the brand recycle 25 water bottles.
