You may be looking for your next running, workout clothes, or just comfortable athletic wear to run your daily errands. For the most part, people require sustainable athletic wear that is elastic, breathable, consistent, and durable. Keep on reading as we explain more about what to look for in sustainable athletic wear and the options available at The Running Republic.
First, a quick reminder about what sustainability is in regards to athletic wear. Sustainable athletic wear has been produced by minimizing the environmental impact throughout its processes and by sourcing materials that are eco-friendly. Keep an eye out for companies that don’t live up to their sustainability claims. The Running Republic offers sustainable athletic wear collections made entirely of recycled synthetics and organic materials, and our sustainable and ethical claims can be backed by real data and the traceability of all our processes and materials, and it is not a marketing tool.
The Running Republic uses mainly recycled fabrics manufactured by sourcing post-consumer products such as plastic bottles, fishing nets, and other plastic scraps. The materials are turned into synthetic fabrics, polyester and nylon polyamide, and used as primary materials for our athletic wear. Our production takes place in ethical factories in Spain and Portugal where textile workers are provided with decent working conditions and wages. Our local production ensures a carbon footprint that is the smallest possible.
The recycled materials require fewer resources such as energy and water to manufacture and help in diverting waste from landfills and oceans. In addition, their production minimizes CO2 gas emissions and avoids the introduction of new oil-based materials into the environment.
