When we started looking at materials, we knew we wanted to provide something more fair and sustainable to the market without compromising any technology or aesthetics about the clothing.

Today, The Running Republic launches its campaign for sustainable and extraordinary running apparel on Kickstarter with a funding goal of $13,998 USD. The Running Republic offers a variety of athletic apparel that is not only safe for the environment, but also functional and appealing.

“We run to feel better and connect with the earth. The same earth that we want to protect. We are a movement of conscious and free people. We are a republic. We believe this product perfectly identifies with the millennial eco-runner,” said creator Paolo Quagliotti. “I started working on this project years ago, but the need became more evident recently. When we started looking at materials, we knew we wanted to provide something more fair and sustainable to the market without compromising any technology or aesthetics about the clothing. All of our products are manufactured by socially responsible suppliers, too.”

The Running Republic’s soft and lightweight clothing is made of recycled Polyester and Polyamide fibers from post-consumer plastic bottles and fishnets, meaning the clothing does not introduce new contaminates into the environment. Eighty four percent of the material The Running Republic uses is recycled, and almost 100 percent of the rest is elastane.

The Running Republic’s clothing controls moisture and is quick drying, bacteriostatic and UV protected up to UPF 40. It also offers four-way stretch for elasticity and muscle compression to improve performance. The apparel is complete with YKK zippers and reflective details for protection and visibility.

The Running Republic offers men’s tee shirts, baselayers, woven shorts, hoodies, long tights and a stretch jacket. They also offer women’s tee shirts, tank tops, woven shorts, capri-cut leggings, regular leggings, a hoodie and jacket. Every item is available in men’s sizes S - XXL and women’s sizes XS - XL.

The Running Republic clothing is currently available on Kickstarter starting at $45 USD for an Essential Running Tee. For more information or to pre-order, visit pr.go2.fund/runningrepublic.

About The Running Republic

As a team of runners, enthusiasts of nature and life, they created The Running Republic® because they were tired of always wearing the same boring running gear and, most of all, they were tired of looking for real conscious running gear without finding a real solution.
