WHY ORGANIC SPORTSWEAR?

This article is an automatic translation from our Original French blog. This text may contain translation errors. Thank you for your understanding.

The practice of sports has become a common activity throughout the world. Sport has become for many a way to exercise every day in a fun way while taking care of their body. For many, sport is simply a healthy way of life for their well-being. Among the irreplaceable accessories of the sportsman the sportswear is essential to be at ease during the various trainings. During our various training sessions the body is put under intense strain and it is important to feel comfortable in order to fully enjoy our sport.

Sportswear has become not only a must for the comfort of the sportsman but also an opportunity to enjoy yourself by adopting an aesthetic outfit. Sportswear is not just about wearing sportswear for comfort during training or a sporting event. Today, wearing sportswear also means wearing an outfit that we like and that can also be worn every day as clothing outside of our sporting activities. Sportswear has the advantage of being versatile in terms of comfort but also in terms of its look, which can be naturally combined with the various everyday fashion items.

Strong Work Sportswear - Sustainable and ethical sportswear

ENVIRONMENT:

So why choose organic sportswear made of organic cotton for the practice of one's sport rather than classic outfits and what are the different advantages of being equipped with ethical and fair trade clothing? First of all, wearing organic cotton clothing also means wearing values, values centred around well-being and the preservation of the environment. Organic clothes are above all clothes with pure materials made of organic cotton that have not undergone any chemical treatment during their cultivation. Choosing organic sportswear is choosing to preserve the environment through committed growers who have chosen to preserve the environment. Then wearing organic and fair trade sportswear is also validating a healthy manufacturing process with those who make it. Growers and workers who all benefit from honest and fair working conditions, thanks in particular to non-profit organisations that ensure their wellbeing within their working conditions.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES FOR SPORTSMEN AND WOMEN TO WEAR ORGANIC COTTON CLOTHING?

Wearing organic cotton sportswear is naturally an advantage for every sportsman because of this natural material. Indeed, during a training session, our skin, moistened by sweat, favours the penetration of chemical molecules that are toxic to our body*. Our skin is part of one of the penetration routes of toxic products for the body. This crucial characteristic was a determining factor in the choice of the quality of the future STRONG WORK fabrics. It was therefore important to design a brand of clothing that would not only be suitable for sportsmen and women but would also respect the body and health of each athlete. Traditional non-organic clothing is potentially harmful to our health, a harmfulness exacerbated by the sweat of our body during our physical activities. Wearing natural organic cotton materials is an asset not only during sport but also outside of training sessions. Wearing natural clothing means taking care of your health by avoiding skin contact with any harmful chemicals. Another important criterion not to be overlooked is the ability of organic cotton to absorb moisture while being breathable, it is also softer and more flexible.

STRONG WORK AND YOUR SKIN BREATHES:

The use of organic cotton materials in our different models contributes to the comfort during your activity. Indeed, organic cotton is naturally breathable, soft and comfortable. It is the material of choice for your sport. Another advantage of organic cotton is the hypoallergenic power of this vegetable fibre which is a real asset for sensitive skin. No more itching or other irritations, your skin will thank you! These are some of the many advantages of wearing natural clothing for sports. STRONG WORK is sportswear made from natural fibres without pesticides, GMOs or any other chemical products derived from petroleum. Natural clothes for all those who take care of their body on the sports field but also outside. Our collections are healthy and can be worn during your sporting activities as well as during your more casual days. The sportswear look nowadays is worn as well for training as for off-duty days and STRONG WORK has understood this very well by proposing collections that are versatile in terms of comfort but also in terms of style. To each his own sport, to each his own style, STRONG WORK accompanies you every day through its different sportswear collections.
