Kick-start healthy new habits with sustainable backpacks, sneakers and lifestyle essentials.

Whether you’re hitting the gym or packing for a fitness retreat, this season’s latest gear makes it easier than ever to live a more active lifestyle. While you boost your personal wellbeing, you can take care of the planet at the same time, thanks to an array of sustainable gear crafted from recycled materials, regenerated nylon, vegetarian leather.

To get your started, we’ve scoped out a few of the coolest eco-conscious bags, bottles, sneakers and shower essentials from leading luxury brands such as TUMI, Prada, Stella McCartney and more.

Bag it up

TUMI’s recycled capsule collection breaks the mould by using at least 70 per cent recycled materials in each piece.

Exclusively made for the APAC region, TUMI’s recycled capsule collection is as stylish as it is sustainable. At least 70 per cent of every piece has been made from recycled fibres and plastic bottles, effectively turning plasti to treasure.

Ideal for weekend trips and everyday commutes, the collection is full of handsome new iterations of the brand’s Alpha Bravo series, such as the Nellis Backpack, Kelley Sling and London Roll Top Back – all of which sport a sleek navy hue with tan accents. Meanwhile, nylon exteriors and waterproof lining ensure the same long-term durability that TUMI is known for.

Prada’s new Re-Nylon collection turns recycled ocean waste into chic backpacks and carry-alls.

Prada recently took a giant leap towards sustainable luxury when it announced plans to convert all virgin nylon into regenerated nylon ECONYL – a material that’s obtained through recycling fishing nets, textile fibre and plastic waste collected from the ocean – by 2021.

As part of its sustainable push, Prada’s new Re-Nylon collection showcases six classic bag silhouettes made with sustainable ECONYL. Sporting a rich shade of blue, the designs ranges from small everyday packs to weekend duffles, shoulder bags and belt bags so there’s something for every occasion.

kikki.K’s stainless steel bottles are good for you – and the environment.

More than 8 million tons of plastic enter waterways every year and, by 2050, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation predicts that the ocean will contain more plastic than sea creatures. While you might not be able to change the statistics alone, every tiny bit counts: you can do your part by making small changes, like swapping single-use plastic bottles for a reusable number.

At kikki.K, find well-crafted stainless steel water bottles that are durable and stylish. Ideal for the whole family, choose from sweet woodland scenes or minimalist colours, such as mint green, white and black.

For even more variety, Harvey Nichols stocks lots of colourful water bottles from S’well. These beauties hold either hot or cold beverages – plus they’re vacuum-sealed to keep your drinks at the optimal temperature for hours. From gold to white marble, camouflage to purple ombre, the wide colour selection ensures that every bottle is an extension of your personal style.

Step by step

Step into vegetarian leather Eclypse Monogram Sneakers from Stella McCartney.

Since Stella McCartney launched in 2001, the ‘vegetarian’ brand has never used animal products to ensure the designs are sustainable and cruelty-free. The recently launched Eclypse Monogram Sneakers are an excellent example. Designed for active women, these chunky rainbow-hued shoes are made with vegetarian leather so you can feel good about your purchase, as well as your workout.

Cleaner and greener

Aveda’s softening Cherry Almond Leave-in Conditioner comes in a recycled PET bottle.

When it comes to post-workout essentials, Aveda’s plant-powered hair products are a top choice for eco warriors. As the first beauty company to use 100 per cent post-consumer recycled PET packing, Aveda is known for its long-term environmental efforts and a commitment to using natural ingredients. Women will love the brand’s moisturising Cherry Almond Leave-in Conditioner which smooths hair and tames flyaways.
