228: Vegan Athlete Wear
with Janet Safiuallah
Janet Safiuallah has been an working out most of her life. She has competed in bikini competitions and, like many of us at one time, didn't think she could build muscle on a vegan diet. A friend of hers in the gym, who was working out just as hard as Janet mentioned she was vegan, which sparked Janet's interest in the lifestyle. Soon after, she saw What the Health, and decided to give it a try.
Today, Janet owns the all vegan, sustainable activewear company, Vegan Athlete Wear, which is most known for the "Vegan Booty" leggings and shorts. The company has recently expanded to include more tops and sports bras for females, and has even added a men's line to the collection!

"Spreading the plant based love one legging at a time!"
"We love our planet & we're mindful of the impact we are making by using recycled materials and we are a Zero-Waste Organization. Products from Vegan Athlete Wear are made using 100% certified recycle polyester and Nylon. This is our commitment to reduce textile carbon footprint."
100% CERTIFIED RECYCLED POLYESTER
"An innovative, versatile recycle fabric created melting down existing plastic and re-spinning it into new polyester fiber.. Breathable, incredibly soft, and durable."
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT
"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 off marine life and polluting a once healthy, thriving ecosystem. As landfills continue to reach capacity, more are created, taking over valuable forests and wetlands. Since plastics are indestructible, it’s vital that we find ways to reuse them—so they’re giving that plastic bottle a second life."
"While there is no perfect solution to eco-friendly packaging, we keep our packaging as minimal as we can. Vegan Athlete products are pack to you in a reusable, 100% Compostable Mailer is a great step towards sustainable packaging; our larger packages ship in a plastic-free, naturally biodegradable paper box."
WE ARE GIVING BACK
"With each purchase you make, a percentage goes into a mission we care for deeply. Not only are you supporting a vegan product, you are supporting a mission."
