Sustainable Yoga & Sportswear for Women
About GNGR Bees
An honest activewear brand on a mission to empower the world, GNGR Bees was founded on the principle that we already have the necessary materials to create something new. Driven by these values and their creative flair, GNGR Bees reclaim waste materials (such as fishing nets, bottles and cement sacks) and lovingly transform them into beautiful activewear. Each garment is made to the highest quality and is designed to endure even the toughest workouts. So you can spend less time adjusting your clothes and more time empowering yourself and those around you.
GNGR Bees aims to set a new standard in the sustainable world by leading with honesty and transparency, sharing not just their achievements but the steps they have yet to take and find solutions for.
