As I mentioned here, I’ve taken up yoga. While I don’t feel much of a sense of peace, I am more limber. The downside to all this calm is that I’m gaining weight. I’ve substituted my daily run with yoga, having only finite workout time – thus the extra poundage.
One place I am lighter is in the wallet from suiting up in all the latest yoga gear. I was dismayed when I read on Good Experience that my fave yogawear store, Lululemon, has been defrauding customers, at least with one of line of clothing. Their super duper VitaSea line purports to have 24% seaweed in it to help with reducing stress, detoxifying and and providing extra vitamins to the skin. And that’s on top of having a great cut that makes most figures look a few pounds lighter!
Unfortunately, the VitaSea line doesn’t have any seaweed in it. Whoops.
Quoting from the story:
When told about the findings, Lululemon’s founder said he could not dispute them.“If you actually put it on and wear it, it is different from cotton,” said Dennis Wilson, Lululemon’s founder, chief product designer and board chairman. “That’s my only test of it,” said Mr. Wilson, known as Chip.
I still love Lululemon’s clothing. But their company is just a little tarnished to me right now.
