Recycled Plastic Crossover Pocket Legging - Juniper
By now, you’ve probably seen a million different leggings and are wondering what makes these special (other than being made from water bottles, of course.) Well for starters, Wolven have been told that these are the softest leggings ever made, they have a flattering waistband designed to highlight the slimmest part of your silhouette, they don’t pinch, and they stay put. Plus, let’s not forget they have pockets. If we’re counting right that’s six reasons why these are better than your average legging, but who’s counting? Made using post-consumer recycled plastic — 84% RPET and 16% spandex.
You might be familiar with Juniper berries as an ingredient in one of the most popular libations, but we couldn’t let gin steal all the fun. Now you can wear the beauty of this natural botanical even when the party’s over.
For each sale, Wolven removes one pound of waste from the ocean.

Why It’s Important
Multiple LCA's (life-cycle analysis) have found that producing recycled-PET generates substantially less carbon emissions than its virgin counterpart. Climate scientists agree that reducing carbon emissions is our single most important objective to reduce catastrophic climate change.
An estimated 14 billion pounds of garbage is dumped into the ocean annually, 80 percent of which is a form of plastic that is killing marine life and damaging delicate ecosystems. Since plastics are indestructible, it’s vital that we find ways to reuse them — so we’re giving that plastic bottle a second life while substantially reducing carbon emissions.
It’s not enough to operate as sustainably as possible, so Wolven also invest in programs that offset the emissions they’ve created. To address their carbon footprint they’ve partnered with Climate Neutral. This means measuring their greenhouse gas emissions footprint, purchasing carbon credits to offset that footprint, and implementing plans to reduce emissions moving forward.
This means your Wolvens are carbon–neutral (yay!). These carbon credits support a range of projects such as rainforest conservation and landfill methane-capture.
Rest assured that they’re doing everything they can to deliver a product with the lowest possible impact.
