Girlfriend Collective is a women’s athletic wear startup known for giving away $60 leggings for free over the internet and using 25 recycled water bottles to make each one.
Those leggings are my all-time favorite, most flattering pair.
Girlfriend Collective recently launched tops, and they’re just as great: breathable, flattering, and relatively accessible at $28-$38.
Each shirt in the collection saves 682 gallons of water compared to cotton. 
To offset any water Girlfriend Collective uses, the company is donating 10% of net profits to Charity Water. 

A few years ago, a company called Girlfriend Collective was generating a lot of Facebook buzz by offering anyone who could pay for shipping a free pair of luxury leggings.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
