This is not a drill, people. This is real life. You can get your hands on a pair of luxe, eco-friendly leggings for free. Meet Girlfriend Collective, a new brand created by Ellie and Quang Dinh. The Dinhs created this line of soft, comfortable, functional leggings that are just as perfect for a gym visit as they are for wearing about town.
Each pair was made out of recycled polyester that came from 25 recycled water bottles. They were manufactured at a facility in Taiwan and at a fair-trade location in Vietnam.
They’re chic and oh-so-flattering — and they’re probably the most environmentally friendly pair of pants you’ll ever own. Ellie Dinh talked to InStyle about the process of making the leggings, and she couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.
Now for the REALLY good part. The Dinhs decided to give away the leggings for free, to show that their product, which will be sold at $100 retail, is totally worth it. The only thing you’ve got to pay is the $20 shipping cost. Yep, that’s it.
They launched their campaign in April, and when they offered the free leggings, they sold 10,000 pairs on the first day. Naturally, they also got a lot of inquiries about whether the whole thing was a scam. They assured their customers this was for real.
The momentum doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, but this deal only lasts until January 2017, so jump on it while you can. And keep your eyes on Girlfriend Collective. We have a feeling they’ll keep releasing incredible pieces for a long time to come.
