Recent headlines of plastic straws being replaced with steel and bamboo counterparts has been making waves as part of the movement to better protect the environment. Jumping on the bandwagon, Motiv8 has launched their new 2018 collection and it’s made from plastic waste!

The homegrown sports apparel known for catering to the “athleisure” culture is playing an important role in the fight for a better planet with their new Universe collection. Comprising of the Cosmic Abstract Set and the Vega Stars Set, these collections consists of sports bras and leggings.

Made from Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate or RPET, the material that makes up the Cosmic Abstract Set turns waste into valuable resources or in this case it works as material for clothing. Arriving on a timely period, RPET also removes the need to discard plastics and the risk of indiscriminate littering.

Describing the Cosmic Abstract set as a lightweight set that combines four-way stretch and sweat-wicking fabric, it makes an essential foundation for the gym, yoga and other sports. The sports bra also comes along with removable padding for a smooth and supportive fit while the leggings feature a high waist ensuring comfort and support for all body types.

On the other hand, emphasising on a more chic style, the Vega Stars Set comes in a palette of dark navy enlivened by a dash of neon pink. Made with sculpting stretch fabric, the Vega Sports bra comes in a race-back design with compression fit. The matching leggings are equally as playful with a splatter of neon stars on one side. Made with a stretch compression fabric that flattens the stomach and engages the core, this mid-rise pair is designed with side-pockets (finally someone heard the ladies!) for you to keep smaller items with you while working out.

Founded by Shirley Chan, Motiv8 is a homegrown new sportswear and athleisure brand launched in early 2017 catering to women of all ages be it for the street or in the gym.
