Ethical and sustainable sports brands have grown in numbers in recent years. Once the harmful effects of fast and cheap became a genuine concern, many brands pitched in to make a difference. At the same time, institutions have imposed more restrictions and requirements for textile production and new standards have been set in place. The wheels seem to be turning in the right direction but there is still much to be done. Achieving a sustainable textile industry is not the work of a single brand, institution, or group of people, but rather a collective effort of all the parties involved.
The Running Republic is among the sustainable sports brands that want to make a difference. We believe in sporting goods conceived in a different way that prevents the contamination of our ecosystems by plastic pollution.
The best sustainable sports brands
The Running Republic only produces clothing of the highest quality, made with sustainable and recycled fabrics. The synthetic recycled fabrics are highly technical and perform just like the original fabrics but require fewer resources and energy to manufacture. The fabrics coupled with innovative designs feel extremely comfortable and have all the features you would expect in quality sports clothing, that is, our sports clothing is flexible, breathable, moisture-wicking, and resistant to abrasion. Our designs also care a lot for aesthetics; we know that if you like what you wear you will wear it until the end of its life. But, don’t take our word for it. A quick only search for our sustainable ratings and you will arrive at independent portals such as Ethical Time where many sustainable running brands are rated. Also, our clothing complies with industry standards such as the GRS (Global Recycled Standard) and OEKO-TEX standard 100 which certify our clothing is free of harmful substances.
International Sustainable Sports Brands
The Running Republic manufactures all its sports clothing in ethical factories in Spain and Portugal which are constantly monitored by us to make sure they provide decent compensation and working conditions. In this way, you contribute to reducing the carbon footprint from long-distance transportation. We also believe less is more, and we make our clothing with unmatched quality so they last. By using our activewear made from recycled materials, you will contribute to diverting waste from landfills and oceans.
