Search the hashtags #Sustainability, #Fashion and #Fitness on Tiktok and you’ll be hit with over one billion views, a piece. Slice down the natural cross-section of the three, and you’ll land on the growing landscape of sustainable activewear. Throw in a pinch of body inclusivity to arrive smack-bang into the territory of Aussie activewear label, dk active.  

Designed mindfully for different bodies and activities, this collection wants to make you feel good from the inside out. Championing sustainable materials and construction, each garment is designed for longevity and an inclusive range of bodies. Whether an active day means running errands and smashing your to-do list, or crushing pb’s at the gym, dk is designed to support you.    

Available in a range of levels, from low to high support, and up to a size 24, dk aims to ensure you feel cool, comfortable and secure. A crop to work up a sweat in without falling out of? Tights with a little extra height at the top? Bike shorts that will take you from benchpress to brunch? All covered. And all made to last, reducing your garment consumption and giving the planet a break. 

Knowing that sustainability touches all aspects of the supply chain, dk is manufactured in Australia and all deliveries are made via 100% carbon offset delivery partners and sent in non-toxic, biodegradable satchels made from plants. Proving consistent attention to detail, even the sticky tape used to secure your goodies is made from biodegradable materials. 

As much as making a sustainable choice gets the feel-good juices flowing, a cheeky discount doesn’t hurt either. Use the code URBAN15 for $15 off your order when you spend a minimum of $50.
