Avid cyclists deserve sustainable and stylish gear too, and the two designers behind Veleco hope to launch their eco-friendly line soon. The Fair Trade and sweatshop free line of cyclewear promises to keep bicyclists cool and comfy, while also protecting the planet. Veleco have launched a Kickstarter campaign, in hopes to expand their line enough to have their clothing produced even more sustainably- in a carbon neutral factory.

Veleco carries stylin’ wares like soft t-shirts for her and him, cycling shorts, caps, cross-body bags and their famous Re:Cycle Softshell Cycling Jacket 2.0, made from twelve recycled plastic bottles. The Re:Cycle jacket is the crème de la crème of Veleco, with a warm and sleek lining, multiple pockets, reflective details and water and wind proofing.

Veleco was created when founders Jamie and John were unable to find a truly sustainable and ethical line of cyclewear in the world. They decided to take up that challenge, and start their own fair-trade company. Their line uses recycled and natural materials whenever possible, including items recycled from consumer plastic bottles. The clothes are made at fair wages, with a Fair Trade. Premium on every cap, short and jacket that gives back to the worker health and welfare fund. If their Kickstarter gets funded, they plan to produce their t-shirt line in a carbon neutral factory, powered by wind turbines. Supporters will get exclusive deals on their clothing line, at the manufacturer’s cost!
