Innovating activewear for men and women, Accel Lifestyle has announced the launch of anti-stink apparel for people who live actively, conscientiously and are always on the go.

Accel Lifestyle’s apparel is anti-stink and pro-environment. It is also eco-friendly and encourages a wear more, wash less practice. The average American throws away 85 pounds of textiles a year, contributing to the landfill epidemic, the brand explains. Because their shirts are anti-stink, people will be less inclined to throw them away. Accel also uses sustainable fabric, minimising the use of microplastics. The company also focuses on sustainable packaging– ditching plastic and providing 100% biodegradable packaging.

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.

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. Prema fabric has been developed after more than two years of rigorous antimicrobial testing, using the same lab the government uses and is 100% sourced and made in the USA.

“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.”
