Terra Active Down to Earth

.

Terra Active is a sustainable active brand and online retailer based in Roermond, The Netherlands. We believe fitness should not only be about caring for your body and your health, but also about caring for the health of our planet. Many materials currently being used in the health and fitness industry are not recyclable and have a large carbon footprint. In starting Terra Active, our aim is to bring awareness to this issue and provide you with high quality, sustainable alternatives to current non-sustainable workout materials. Learn more about our sustainability journey here.

At Terra Active we believe in the beauty of nature, natural beauty if you will. That's why, with the exception of lighting, we refuse to retouch anything in our photos. We believe everybody is beautiful because of it's natural (im)perfections. Our brand is here to empower you to be your best self, for you and for our planet.

We promise we will always be down to earth

OUR FOUNDER


Hello! I’m Janneke, the founder of Terra Active. I guess this is the part where I tell you a little something about myself right? Well, here goes!
.
Having spent my early working career in jobs dedicated to sustainable energy development, I grew increasingly aware of climate issues and the need for sustainable initiatives. Alongside this, I have always been an active person and placed great importance on my health. I quickly became an avid fitness enthusiast and found the health and fitness industry fascinating, learning more about pushing my limits and the strength of my own body. 
.
Being immersed in the health and fitness world for several years, I began to see that much of the equipment and materials being used were not recyclable or eco-friendly at all and have large carbon footprints. This to me did not add up: how can we be so concerned about our own well-being but not about the well-being of our planet? 
.
In 2020 I had planned to take a sabbatical from my job and travel to the United States to be with my partner. As I'm sure was the case for many of you as well, my 2020 plans didn't exactly go how I had envisioned. I was "stuck" back home in The Netherlands with no job and unsure of when I would be able to continue with my plans. I had plenty of time to think about what it is I really wanted to do and what I'm passionate about. As they say, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, so that's exactly what I did and thus Terra Active was born!
