MoveActive is thrilled to announce three of our products have been named as finalists in the Clean + Conscious Awards for 2023. Our Luxe Recycled Yoga Mats have been awarded Bronze in the Best Yoga Mat/Accessory category, and our Luxe Eco Yoga Mat - Cork has placed as a finalist in this same category. Our Classic Low Rise grip socks have also been awarded a finalist place in the Best Sustainable Activewear & Basics category.
The Clean + Conscious Awards showcase the very best clean and conscious products available to buy in Australia and New Zealand.
“We are thrilled to place among other stand out businesses at the Clean + Conscious Awards this year. We’ve always been a business driven by sustainability, but now more than ever we are dedicated to constantly evolving our business practices and products to reach our goal of becoming a market leading sustainable business,” said Founder Melissa Pain.
Emily Fletcher, Clean + Conscious Awards Founder and Head of Research and Education, explains that in 2023, “Many buyers now seek transparency and authenticity from the brands they support, which has resulted in a steady growth of clean and conscious products. Despite this progress, the challenges of greenwashing and misinformation persist. Our Awards play a vital role in empowering consumers with accurate information to make healthier, more responsible choices."
More about our products which placed as finalists:
In 2022, we began incorporating Recycled Polyester (RPET) into our yoga and reformer mats. RPET is derived from discarded plastic bottles and fishing nets, diverting plastic waste from landfills and oceans. By reusing these materials, MoveActive actively participates in waste reduction and recycling.
Starting from March 2023, we have shifted towards using certified organic cotton in our grip sock collections. Organic cotton cultivation employs a sustainable approach that eliminates harmful chemicals, reducing environmental impact, conserving water and energy, while also reducing use of pesticides.
Last year, we introduced our Cork Range. This collection, including yoga and reformer mats, blocks, massage balls, and rollers, utilises 100% natural cork, an eco-friendly and biodegradable material. The use of cork, a renewable resource, aligns with climate action goals and supports eco-conscious consumers in their choices.
