So I started running lately to clear my head from writing etc. And I kept seeing all of these women running in skirts. At first I thought they were all going to play tennis. But…they had no rackets. Then I realized running skirts are a thing.
So I wrote an article about them for The New York Times. While it’s not my usual green focus, I did ask skirt designers about eco-fabrics. That part didn’t make it into the story. Apparently there is some recycled poly and more used for some running clothes, but since materials that wick away sweat and don’t chafe are crucial for marathoners, organic cotton isn’t high on the list.
