Eco-Brands We Love: Blyss Running









Most here know me as the DIY queen behind the sewing machine and sustainable fashion advocate but at one point I was the best prep runner in the country. I learned early on how empowering running can be. I may not be setting national records anymore, but I do set time daily to run. As a mother and business owner it's important for me to clear my head and break a sweat. I’m inspired by nature and the motivation I get from pushing myself. 

Finding a brand that is committed to my passion for running and sustainability has been important to me. Blyss Running fits these needs and then some. Blyss Running was created by Alyson after not being able to find running apparel with longer inseams and pockets. She set out to create the perfect blend every female runner looks for in a athletic brand: functional, comfortable, and flattering.  I did my own test run in the distance capri and I can verify they check all the boxes. I like the flattering seam lines that provide a nice lift to my smaller curves. The longer capri is perfect for fall and winter running. I am a fan of the comfortable yet fitted waistline, never once having to fijit with pulling my pants up which is something I usually have problems with. I also feel put together post workout to run errands. Win on all aspects. 

OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE YOU WITH FUNCTIONAL, FLATTERING AND COMFORTABLE RUNNING APPAREL THAT INSPIRES YOUR EMPOWERMENT AND JOY.”

Not only does Blyss understand a runners needs, the brand values sustainability and manufactures their clothing by a woman-owned factory in the USA. This allows “Blyss to participate in a growing sustainable economy,’ all while having full access to the production process. The trail skirts are made from recycled polyester (plastic bottle)/spandex blend. The same fabric is used for the undershorts of the Blyss Skirt. They're fabric supplier uses a non-toxic printing technology resulting in cleaner water and less energy used. This method is a sustainable solution for manufacturing custom printed textiles. 

Blyss running saw a need to create running clothing for “the athlete in every woman.” What I love about the running community is although everyone has different speeds, events, or goals we’re all connected through the joy and empowerment that running brings. I'm happy to be connected with such a fantastic company and product. 

Thanks Blyss Running for creating a eco-conscious product that works for "the athlete in every woman."
