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.
