Trends may come and go, but eco-conscious clothing looks like it’s here to stay. If you’re planning to revamp your wardrobe into something more environmentally friendly, you may want to invest in Rumi X. The sustainable sportswear brand reuses plastic and even coffee grounds.
‘Rumi X was born out of my three passions: spirituality, yoga, and nature,’ [said creator Melissa Chu]
‘I wanted to develop something that spoke to the devotion of my practice and honour my source of energy from spirituality, while simultaneously ensuring that our products were environmentally impactful and contributing to the solution, not being part of the problem.’
Chu further explains that Rumi X is about being mindful of oneself and of others. As with most environmental activists, Rumi X begins with awareness.
‘Rumi X is about living a mindful lifestyle, taking care of yourself within, and being good to the world around you,’
‘We take care of our body, mind, and soul, and we take care of others around us to feel good.’
Rumi has not only done a great job recycling and upcycling materials, it is also affordable and accessible to customers.
‘Whether you are reducing your plastic waste or inspired to develop sustainable products as a business, we do hope that we can inspire each individual to become more mindful in their everyday life,’
If you are picking up coffee wear any time soon, I hear it also does wonders for body odor. Work that body out!
