Based on respect. We believe that fair trade and sustainable development are natural: respecting your skin with soft materials; respecting the men and women who make your clothes with dignified working conditions; and respecting the world that we live in by limiting our impact on the environment.
95% MADE IN BANGLADESH, 100% TRANSPARENT
Run Wild is convinced that manufacturing in Asia is a good thing if done properly. Properly means respecting the rights of the men and women that are employing the factories. It means giving them the means to acquire new skills and to receive education and training.
For our garments produced in Dhaka, the Bangladeshi team monitors our 5 partner factories every day. They are all audited by the Fair Wear Foundation.
OUR MATERIALS AND ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATIONS
We favour organic or recycled materials that care for your skin and the environment. Our entire production chain benefits from the strictest environmental certifications and labels in the market.
Run Wild never uses standard cotton. Most of our clothing is made from 100% organic cotton.
Organic cotton is a natural, GMO-free fibre that uses less water than standard cotton. In addition, its production does not involve the use of chemicals (no fertilisers or pesticides) and encourages rotation of crops to keep soil healthier, more fertile and maintain humidity. Waste from the cotton ginning process is also recycled for the animal feed industry.
Recycled polyester is used to make some garments and accessories and as a complement (up to 15%) to organic cotton in some of our sweatshirts.
One windcheater jacket enables the recycling of between 7 and 8 PET plastic bottles. And to ensure that our sweatshirts are nice and soft against your skin, it is never in direct contact with the polyester, which is sandwiched between two layers of organic cotton.
OUR GRS CERTIFICATION
The Global Recycled Standard label certifies that the materials used are recycled: in the case of polyester, from plastic bottles, and for cotton, from cutting waste. GRS also guarantees compliance with social and environmental criteria such as treatment of waste water, the absence of certain toxic additives and respect for working conditions in our partner factories.
The cutting of different pieces to make our products naturally produces scrap material. Since the idea of throwing this material away is out of the question, we have a partner who collects and recycles it into new cotton thread that we use in the manufacture of our tote bags.
OEKO-TEX: TRUST YOUR CLOTHES WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED!
You can’t buy trust. It has to be earned. OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certifies the absence of harmful chemical substances in all Run Wild products thanks to the “Confidence in textile” label. An independent testing and certification system that ensures that all raw, semi-finished and finished textile products are processed in a way that prioritises:
The precautionary principle, which prohibits certain potentially harmful substances even where they are not (yet) legally banned
The absence of chemical substances that are harmful to health and the environment
A restriction on the lead content of dyes
Our garments are PETA certified where stated. This means no animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finished products. On top of this, the garments are made from 100% vegan materials so you can be confident that no harm was done to animals.
