At Run4It we see running as a force for good and believe in offering the best possible products to improve your run. And we believe the best products are the ones which have the lowest impact on our planet.
We carefully select all of our products for their quality and benefit to runners, and we want to help you shop more sustainably with ease. This collection of footwear, apparel and accessories has been carefully compiled to highlight responsibly produced products, made using sustainable and recycled materials.
While no products have zero impact, products manufactured using non virgin materials have a significantly reduced carbon footprint. Many high performance sportswear brands are now using recycled materials, primarily recycled PET, in clothing but also in footwear and accessories. These technical fabrics are made by breaking down plastic waste and spinning it into high performance yarns. As well as preventing plastic products from going to landfill or into oceans, this process uses much less energy in production and reduces the need for raw finite materials. With many of your favourite running brands such as Nike, adidas, Brooks and Ronhill making significant progress in this area, you won’t have to compromise on performance or style when choosing more sustainable textiles.
All clothing in our sustainable running collection is made from at least 50% recycled materials, with many of the featured products made from fully recycled content. Performance footwear has a longer way to go in becoming more sustainable, but select brands have made great strides in developing shoe uppers using recycled yarns and knit fabrics. Salomon are leading the way in sustainable running shoes with the recyclable Salomon Index.01, their first step towards a circular product lifecycle. All other footwear in our sustainable collection features upper textiles that are made from recycled content, with brands including adidas, Hoka One One and On Running.
