A lighter footprint for the good of the planet.

At Saucony, we exist to empower the human spirit through running, and quite simply, the future of our sport depends on the future of our planet. Dedicated to sustainability, we’re constantly innovating in order to create the best performance and lifestyle footwear and apparel, all with the lightest footprint possible.

The starting line

This isn’t a marathon or a sprint, but you could call it the most important race of our lives. While our work isn’t limited to these three areas, focusing here first has helped us take big strides forward while laying a foundation for continual progress.

We know that plastic weighs heavily on the environment.

Many synthetic materials used in footwear and apparel, like polyester and TPU, are considered plastic, which means that discarded gear can remain in landfills for far too long.

Because of this, we’re trying to minimize our footprint by using less virgin plastic and more recycled, natural, or other eco-friendly materials wherever possible.

The way we make things matters as much as what’s in them.

By ensuring our high performance and durability standards, you can use our products for a good long time, and even extend their life by repurposing them for other activities or donating when you’re done with them.

Our membership in the Sustainable Apparel Coalition — the apparel, footwear, and textile industry’s leading alliance for sustainable production — helps us use data to address inefficiencies, improve sustainability performance, and achieve the transparency we know is important to you.

First impressions are everything.

Our teams have been working to incorporate more sustainable and recycled content into everything from our hangtags to our shoeboxes, all so that what’s on the outside is as good as what’s inside.

Because we know there’s strength in numbers, we’ve joined prAna’s Responsible Packaging Movement to accelerate the work we’re doing to create less wasteful, lower-impact packaging for both consumer goods and production samples.

The proof is in the products.
