Emma Reid introduces Tribe Sports' sustainable sportswear

Tribe Sports, a UK-based running apparel company, has launched its Core range, a collection of high-performance running attire made from 90 per cent recycled materials.

The Core range was created in response to the results of a survey, carried out by the brand, that found that 68 per cent of 2,852 runners surveyed said they wanted their kit to be made sustainably and from recycled materials.

The seven-piece collection was developed specifically with sustainability in mind and uses several sustainable fabric innovations, including Econyl, regenerated nylon made from plastic waste collected from the oceans and landfill.

It consists of both men's and women's wear and includes a t-shirt, race shorts and running tights for men, and a racer vest, running shorts, t-shirt and running tights for women. The pieces are lightweight and soft and designed to allow for dynamic and unrestricted movement.

Emma Reid, Tribe Sports MD, says: "We wanted to provide runners with sustainable running gear that treads lightly on the planet without compromising on performance, comfort and style.”

"By making tangible changes to the way we run our business and produce our clothing, we're able to address environmental issues head-on. It's a big step, but we're confident we can produce the best performance running apparel on the planet, while we also tackle the key environmental issues."

The brand has also announced plans to become the UK's first 360-degree sustainable running brand.

Passport365 to debut in Australia, says Garry Martin

Passport365, a sports facilities management app, has sold its Australian territory rights to Tuff Group, a synthetic grass specialist based in Victoria, Australia.

The app, which launched for global sale last year, is designed for sports facilities and enables users to book in maintenance jobs for their sports surfaces, as well as record daily activity and upload images from multiple sites.

The app was in development for two years and was created by Garry Martin, MD of Replay Maintenance, a synthetic grounds specialist based in the East Midlands.

"Passport365 allows everyone working on or managing a site to be able to view, update, share and collate reports from the app," said Martin.

"Most importantly, app users can check on their sites from hundreds of miles away or even in another country," he added. Tuff Group MD Fraser Gehrig said: "We have invested heavily in technology and systems to support our growth and Passport365 complements this perfectly."

Veja wins ISPO award for 'post petroleum' training shoes
The Condor running shoes

French footwear brand Veja has won a Product of the Year award at the 2020 ISPO Awards.

Veja was one of several honoured at an awards ceremony at the ISPO Munich 2020 trade show, which took place earlier this year at Messe München Germany.

The company was recognised in the Running Hardware category for Condor, one of the world's first 'post-petroleum' running shoes. Designed for training and half-marathons for regular runners, the Condor is made from 53 per cent renewable and recycled materials. It aims to use as little fossil fuel in production as possible, using raw materials such as rice waste, banana oil, natural rubber, castor oil and natural latex instead.

"For more than four years we have followed the mission to produce the first performance running shoe without plastic and petroleum," said Sebastien Kopp, co-founder of Veja.

"The way there was hard and there was enormous time pressure and almost insoluble technical challenges. This award shows how important sustainability is for the entire industry.

"It may be made from eco-friendly materials, but the Condor still aims to meet the highest technical standards and offers runners stability, comfort and control," Kopp added.

The award was decided by a jury panel, which said: "Veja has made a step towards a more eco-friendly way of producing sports shoes."
