Accel Lifestyle, manufacturer of fitness apparel, has launched anti-stink apparel for people who are always on the go. Its apparel is pro-environment as it uses sustainable fabric, minimising the use of microplastics. Beyond sustainable fabric, Accel focuses on sustainable packaging too, ditching plastic and providing 100 per cent biodegradable packaging.

Accel's anti-stink apparel is eco-friendly and encourages a wear more, wash less practice. The Accel tees and tanks are soft, lightweight, high-performance staples. Available in six different styles, Accel's tanks and tees are made with Supima, the world's finest cotton, and enhanced with a good dose of powerful anti-stink science woven into each thread of their proprietary Prema fabric. The tees and tanks are made to wear more and wash less, providing breathable stink-free comfort day in and day out, said Accel Lifestyle in a press release.

Accel Lifestyle was created by a creative chemist who was tired of throwing away her athletic wear because it stunk, no matter how much it was washed. While searching for anti-stink clothing, she was underwhelmed by the choices – finding products were either covered in chemicals or made in sweatshops overseas. Concluding neither was an option, she decided to invent her own fabric. She hit the lab and after more than two years of rigorous antimicrobial testing, using the same lab the government uses, she developed Prema fabric - which is now patent pending in 120 countries, 100 per cent sourced and made in the US.

"I founded Accel Lifestyle because, even though there are so many fitness apparel companies today, none of them hit all the boxes on my checklist. I wanted to support a fashionable fitness apparel company that has an ethical supply chain (no sweatshops), and a fabric that doesn’t smell. What did I find? Absolutely nothing. And, I wanted to change that," said founder and CEO Megan Eddings. "With my science background and experience working in science labs at University of Virginia and Brown University, it took 2.5 years to create the fabric from scratch, using the most luxurious threads available and a trade secret protected science."
