The Universal Performance mission is to help encourage day-to-day performance, not just in a ‘fitness sense’ but in performance towards one another and the planet.
‘’If consumers would only refrain from washing one in ten times, we could save 47 million tons (megatons) of CO2 and 4.5 billion cubic meters of freshwater worldwide. So, if you are going to launch a new clothing company then it has to be with good intent for the environment to ensure that you are not ‘adding’ to the current issues that the textile industry create.’’Craig Townley, Creator and Founder of Universal Performance
Wear more, wash less with the genius of Polygiene. Universal Performance activewear range features Polygiene, which eliminates odour by preventing the growth of bacteria.
When bacteria can get into your clothes, it’s hard to get out, meaning you find yourself washing your activewear more than you would like.
But with Polygiene BioStatic™ Stays Fresh technology, bacteria molecules are permanently broken down on contact.
According to Polygiene, 45% of people discard garments after washing due to odour and we want to be part of the solution to that problem.
The power of Drirelease custom blend technology. To further ensure the durability of its activewear Universal Performances uses Drirelease custom blend technology.
The built-in combination efficiently pulls moisture and perspiration away from the skin and pushes it to the exterior of the fabric where it can evaporate quickly. This means less time spent in the washing machine and less water wasted.
No need to compromise on style. From seamless, unrestrictive t-shirts, to expertly cut racer tops with Universal Performance you don’t need to compromise on style when trying to make better garment choices.
Universal Performance believes in high-quality, timeless performance wear that makes you look good and feel good.
Be part of the solution not the problem. Universal Performance is passionate about reducing the environmental impact of its performance wear.
It’s a fact that consumer use equates to almost two-thirds of the environmental footprint of a garment.
This is why by choosing Universal Performance you can be part of the solution, not the problem. Helping to save water, energy and reducing the use of microplastics.
That’s not all. All packaging is either fully recycled or made from eco-friendly, carbon-neutral sugar cane, the greenest material on Earth and you can count on all Universal Performance clothing being handmade by traditional craftspeople in Portugal.
To avoid overproduction and overconsumption all of our clothing is made in smaller batches to help protect the world’s resources.
