I wanted to take a minute to talk about back to school shopping. Hard to believe it’s that time again, but it’s true. We go back earlier than ever before in mid-August. As we are in the thick of school shopping, I wanted to introduce you to Athleta Girl. I love greenier brands and this is one of them. They have a great summer sale (including up to 60% off styles for girls) with styles perfect for school and athletics. I didn’t want you to miss it!
Last year we had a tough time clothes shopping for our daughter. Things were too short, too big, or brands that did fit didn’t quite mesh with my personal ethos. Have you ever had that problem? Well I didn’t know about Athleta Girl back then and I wish I had. This isn’t a sponsored post, althought their are affiliate links included where I earn commission if you purchase through them. I just wanted to share because last year was frustrating.
Athleta Girl is a part of the athleisure company Atleta. From the beginning, they set out to empower girls, get them active, and provide clothing that both they and their parents will love. With a daughter in her early teens, I want to encourage her to stay active and body positive.
60% of Athleta Girl is sustainably made. I’m big on eco-friendly practices. In the past, I’ve talked about eco-friendly travel products and eco-friendly clothing for women. The clothing industry is a major polluter and I like to commend companies that are doing better. In the new Toxic Textiles report from national nonprofit Green America. Athleta and Gap have better than average corporate practices for chemical management, sustainability and transparency. If you are interested, I encourage you to view the report.
This year outfit her for school and every adventure with Athleta Girl. Visit their website to find clothes she’ll love to be active in.
