The Best Eco‑Friendly Running Clothing 2021

Twice a year we carefully choose the clothing range for our stores. We want you to fall in love with the products we love ourselves. It’s not only about the colour, or cut, or the lightness of the fabric – although we love all of that too! – we also care how each product has been made.

We ask the same questions as you:
What’s the environmental impact of this jacket's production? How much water is needed for this T-shirt to be produced? What’s the carbon footprint of having these shorts on our hanger? Is this top made in a safe workplace, and in a socially responsible way? Is this material long-lasting?

Eco-friendly running brands

We’ve selected the newest spring-summer 2021 apparel that has fully transparent production, made with care for the natural environment and with fair working practices. (At the end of this article you can find links to the transparency of all the featured companies).

Let’s choose our running gear by choosing positive change for the planet!
