Community Clothing Launches Plastic-Free Sportswear

Community Clothing

Your gym kit doesn’t have to be all sweaty synthetics. Community Clothing, the brand founded by tailor Patrick Grant, has turned its attention to sportswear, and created a range of 100% plastic free, organic, natural and biodegradable active clothing. This comprises vests, t-shirts, sweatshirts and three styles of shorts, priced from £29.

The majority of modern sportswear is made from non-biodegradable oil-based synthetic plastic materials, principally polyester, nylon, polyurethane and elastane, much of which ends up in landfill. The manufacture of athletic clothing uses tens of millions of barrels of oil each year and has a huge carbon footprint, as well as contributing to microplastic pollution.

‘Community Clothing Organic Athletic represents the most radical change in sportswear in two generations,’ says Patrick Grant. ‘Moving away from oil-based sports clothes to 100% natural and biodegradable means now you can exercise and play sport and not harm the planet in the process.’

Check Out the New Pink Be Boodles Collection

Pink Be Boodles

Pink diamonds are Boodles’ signature – and  among the rarest and most sought-after gemstones in the world. The jeweller’s latest collection celebrates the rare pink stones by reimagining some of its most loved Be Boodles designs with the diamonds.

Unfortunately, supplies of pink diamonds have been dwindling since the Argyle mine in Western Australia closed in 2020 – Boodles is one of only 34 select ateliers worldwide who are able to acquire the remaining stones, but one day the supplies will certainly run out. For now, pink diamonds make a fabulous investment.

‘I don’t see them [pink diamonds] as diamonds anymore, they are so much more than this – they are pieces of art, like a Picasso,’ explains Jody Wainwright, Boodles Director of Precious Gemstones and Diamonds.
