UK-based company Sundried produces premium ethical activewear. Its range includes t-shirts, leggings and accessories for both men and women. All products are made from recycled materials, including coffee cups and plastic bottles.
Its ethical approach extends throughout the business, with efforts to minimise its carbon footprint in manufacture and distribution processes, and to enhance customer experience. Handmade in Portugal and Italy, they provide free UK delivery and cut worldwide shipping costs by 50 per cent. Each purchase also incorporates a pledge to Water For Kids, a charity organisation that supplies safe drinking water to developing communities in Africa.
The range is tailored for movement, including temperature control technology, multi-way stretch fabrics and sweat-wicking materials.
Sundried’s founders are athletes and personal trainers, who develop these features from personal experience. The brand is further endorsed by prominent athletes; its popular ambassador programme includes World Ironman Champion Alice Hector and Team GB World Champion Duathlete Claire Steels.

Sundried is dedicated to making investment pieces that are sustainable for both their customer, and the planet. With the world consuming 400 per cent more clothing than two decades ago, they seek to take responsibility as producers, and provide consumers with viable products to do the same.
