At Athleta, we've always done business differently, putting our mission at the core of everything we do. In 2018, we became a certified B Corp-joining a global community of thousands of businesses that meet high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency.

We're working to lessen our footprint by choosing recycled materials like plastic bottles and fabric scraps, utilizing organic cotton, and investing in renewable energy. We acknowledge that protecting the planet goes hand in hand with improving the well-being of women and girls, and that's why we're committed to empowering women through our internal operations, in our communities and abroad in our supply chain.

Pooja (Women + Water participant)

In many cotton-growing communities in India, women walk an average of 1.2 miles to the nearest water source to collect clean water. This can take up to four hours a day.


We believe access to clean, safe water is a fundamental right. It’s why we seek to improve and sustain the health and well-being of women and communities touched by the apparel industry. Through the USAID Gap Inc. Women + Water Alliance, we work to catalyze women as water champions to advance lasting solutions for water access in India.


Pooja Doriya, a Women + Water champion in her village, used the knowledge and tools she gained from the Women + Water trainings to advocate for improved water access for 150 households in her community.


Now, Pooja and the women in her village no longer need to walk for water.


Pooja says, “From the time we’ve saved every day by not walking for water, the women of the village and I can now spend that time with our families and take time out for ourselves, too. With the time that we have left, we work in our farms, which has resulted in a growth in our incomes.”
