Continue reading and let us tell you more about it!
Our journey to make sustainable athletic wear took us from a simple yet powerful idea to a reality that is changing things for the better. It’s a fact! obtaining high-quality products from recycled materials is possible and it reduces the negative impact on our environment. The idea behind our sustainable athletic wear brand is to take fewer resources from our environment and give the discarded materials a second chance thus promoting a circular economy and deviating waste from landfills and oceans. We know our contribution won’t change the world, but small contributions eventually add up and turn into the change we all want.
Our entire collection is made from recycled materials mainly recycled polyester and recycled polyamide that comes from post-consumer products such as plastic bottles, fishing nets, and other plastic scraps rescued from landfills and oceans. After collection and processing, these materials are turned into high-quality fabrics that make up our sustainable clothing. The technical attributes match the quality of the virgin materials in terms of breathability, durability, resistance to wear, and moisture-wicking properties.
We also know the importance of monitoring our supply chain to make sure all our clothing is manufactured under strict ethical practices. We only work with family-owned factories in Portugal and Spain that have been in the business for decades and provide decent compensation and an overall good and healthy work environment. In addition, we avoid costly transportation from Asia in order to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible. If that is not enough, we are partners with NGO WEFOREST, so every time you purchase a product from our store one tree is planted in Ethiopia.Don’t just go for any sustainable athletic wear brand and visit us at The Running Republic to check out our high-quality athletic wear collection.
