Curious to know what’s in your sportswear and why we should care? 

We’re so excited to share great insights and golden information from textile engineer and Fashion Changers author Franziska Uhl. We chat with her about all things sportswear, what it's made out of, its impact on our environment and health, and the future of sustainable sportswear.

Over the next few weeks we’ll share some short clips from this interview, one question at a time.

For us to do better and #bebetter, we first have to know better. This is why we share all this content with you - making it easier for us to make more conscious choices.
