We Only Have One Earth to Run on

Since our founding in 1949, our purpose has been to help people achieve a Sound Mind, Sound Body™. But in order to achieve Sound Mind, Sound Body™ we need a sound earth to run on. We’re taking action—reducing carbon emissions, embracing recycled materials and using less resources, to continue bringing the benefits of movement to the world we love to run on.

Our Carbon Footprint Label

The new carbon footprint label is part of our continuing efforts to reduce our carbon emissions. We are measuring and sharing the carbon footprint of our products, allowing wearers to make decisions that not only benefit mind and body, but also the planet.
