You Need Ungalli Joggers. Here's Why.

You know you want them. Here's why you need them.

Our Fans Helped Design Them
We’ve always had awesome options for sustainable shirts – tees, tanks, crops, hoodies, crewnecks and now kids (some of which you can snag in our Kickstarter packages!) But our fans kept asking for an option for pants. So you asked and we listened! Now we’re bringing Ungalli Joggers to you through our Kickstarter campaign.

Fashion + Comfort = F*** yeah!
We all have those days when the very idea of pants seems like too much work, but you’ve also got tons of real work to do.

Ungalli Joggers are the best of both worlds. Tapered at the bottom with a subtle Ungalli logo (which we think looks pretty sweet), they’re made of high-quality French Terry Knit. Read: they’re fashionable. No need to rock threadbare fast fashion tights or your old baggy Joggers with the not-so-subtle holes.

We absolutely love the President Obama quote, “The world needs more Canada.” That’s why our Joggers were designed in Canada and will be manufactured in Canada, at a Toronto factory that pays fair wages.

With #Canada150 coming up, what better way to celebrate than a homegrown product? They’ll be perfect for nights camping at Canada’s National Parks next year! But even if you’re not from our Home and Native Land, you can own a piece of it with Ungalli Joggers…because the world really does need more Canada!

For the Earth
Because our Joggers are made in Canada, our carbon footprint is reduced. Plus, they’re made of recycled water bottles and organic cotton. To sum it up, one pair of Ungalli Joggers will save: 110 days of drinking water, eight plastic bottles from the landfill, and one whole day of light bulb energy. Thanks to our friends at Green Story for helping us calculate how our Joggers are helping reduce the environmental impact shopping has on our planet.

Ship Just In Time
Admit it: every year you resolve you’re not going to leave your Holiday shopping until the last minute…and then of course you do. And it’s Christmas Eve, and you’re running through the mall, grabbing the last scratchy sweater in a size too small for your sweetheart…and hoping they don’t break up with you and take the dog…

OK maybe that’s a *bit* far, but wouldn’t it be nice to get started early for once? With an estimated October 2017 delivery date, you can snag the His + Hers Joggers package for just TK, so you can rock yours once the cooler weather hits and surprise him or her come Christmas. Plus, they’ll probably be stealing yours anyways, so at that point you’ll just be happy to have them back. Win-win!

Check out our Kickstarter today – every pledge helps! Thanks so much for all the Ungalli love.

Kickstarter FAQs

Kickstarter FAQ: Ungalli Co-Founders Hailey & Bree answer the top questions we’ve received about Kickstarter.

What is Kickstarter?

We were surprised to learn that some our fans hadn’t heard about Kickstarter! Kickstarter is a platform that allows creators like us to fund a project. Backers agree to a certain financial commitment for a specific reward (check out all of our options here!); they’re only charged if the project hits its goal. See more about what Kickstarter’s all about here.

Why Joggers?

You asked and we listened! We’ve always had organic and recycled options for tops. But we kept getting requests for comfortable, stylish and sustainable pants, which we didn’t have. We decided to develop our joggers with our fans in mind and poll them on colours and style. We got some helpful feedback that gave us fantastic direction- thanks guys!

Why Use Kickstarter?

Adding a whole new product line is a big undertaking in financial and manufacturing terms. It's a very significant move for Ungalli. Taking a Kickstarter approach allows us to expand with the help of our community, friends, customers, and network, while delivering on current offers and products. Plus, it brings you behind-the-scenes of what we do – and we’re all about peeling back the curtain if it helps change the fast fashion industry.

What happens if you don’t reach your target?

Our target is $60,000 to be raised between May 30, 2017 and July 5, 2017. Kickstarter is all or nothing, so it’s super important that we reach our goal! If we don’t make it, our backers won’t be charged. 

How will the dollars raised be used?

The dollars we raise will be used to meet minimum orders at the amazing Canadian factory that supports sustainable fabrics and initiatives. The Kickstarter will also help Ungalli bring our message to the national and global stage.

What is Green Story?

Green Story is a fantastic Ungalli partner and sustainable startup out of Toronto. Green Story helps to qualify the positive impact of green products over conventional products. We love working with their team to tell the story around the positive impact that shopping sustainable has on the earth.

Where will these joggers be sold?

At the moment, Ungalli joggers are ONLY sold online through Kickstarter.

How sustainable are the joggers?

Our joggers, like all Ungalli products, are one of the most truly sustainable fashion offers available on the market. They’re made from recycled and organic materials in a local factory where workers are paid fair wages.

I’m looking for branded t-shirts, where can I send questions?

We have awesome brandable packages for businesses, unions and organizations at great deals in our Kickstarter. Reach out to us at Hailey@ungalli.com and we can answer any questions about logo placement and opportunities.

I sell eco-products, do you do wholesale?

Absolutely! We have a number of wholesale packages in our Kickstarter. We would be happy to answer any questions you have about the designs and how we can outfit your team in Ungalli. Please reach out!

What does Ungalli mean?

When we were little, our mom used to read us “The Name of the Tree” almost every night. The story is about all the animals working together for the greater good. To us, this demonstrates that no matter how limited we are in terms of resources, we can accomplish great things when we band together. This is the story of our namesake, and a big part of why we’re hoping to reach our Kickstarter goal!

Help Kickstart Ungalli Joggers!

We've got some news for you!

As you all know, since our launch in 2013, we've been focused on Recycled and Organic Tees, Tanks, Hoodies, Crew Necks, Hats and Accessories. Sustainable style up top? Check. 

But on social media, through email, and in person, we kept hearing that you wanted an option for pants, too. You asked, and we listened. And what better way to design great clothing than to ask the stylish people who are going to wear it?

We held a vote, asking you, our Thunder Bay and National fans about style...


and logo placement...

After almost 500 votes, a clear winner emerged. We're so excited to show you the new Ungalli Joggers - but we still need your help.

In order to start production, we need $60,000, so we launched a Kickstarter to help bring you the sustainable style you've been looking for. Our Joggers Campaign launches today - and we've got some awesome rewards, plus great deals on our retail and wholesale packages, available only through our Kickstarter.

They say the early bird catches the worm...but in our case the early bird gets a free hat! Head to our Kickstarter page today to see our Early Bird deal. 

Thank you guys so much for all of your support. It means the world to us!
