One thing many people may not know about me is that I used to play tennis for Guyana's Junior National Team as a child, and although I have not played competitively since I was 18, I am still very much connected to the sport. I stay out of the personal dramas of the players and just get stuck into the game itself. Afterall, whatelse matters.
Watching the Men's Finals a few moments ago and seeing both players kitted out in Adidas as they rallied and slid across the court, got me thinking about ethical sportswear for women. It is easy to find organic yoga clothing, as it seems you can't practice yoga in anything but organic cotton, but trying to find a fairtrade, ethical, organic tennis skirt and dress was a bit more of a struggle. Finally, I came across a few great brands, and of course Patagonia didn't disappoint.
