Runners are looking to find the right sustainable products for their active lifestyle. See the JackRabbit recommended sustainable gifts for runners.

Shopping for gifts for the sustainable runner in your life? Look no further, weโ€™ve got some great environmentally friendly suggestions below!

Weโ€™ve all looked at the world in a different perspective this year, and we know finding the right sustainable products is more important than ever. Our Team Member, Ike Tucker, has put together an excellent selection of gifts for you.

SUSTAINABLE FOOTWEAR

Letโ€™s hop right into it with arguably the most important part of running - footwear!

How much better can you get than a plant-based performance running shoe? It checks all the boxes for sustainable gifts for runners! :Look no further than the Reebok Forever Floatride; it has you covered.

This forward-thinking running shoe is made with eucalyptus bark, bloom algae, castor bean oil and natural rubber, this shoe is crafted with both your run and our planet in mind.

SUSTAINABLE RUNNING APPAREL

Now that youโ€™ve laced up the person youโ€™re shopping for, letโ€™s look at the next layer for some additional shopping ideas, and no need to look too far, as icebreaker brings in a perfect complementing sustainable running top. 

Whatโ€™s that, stylish, comfy, and biodegradable donโ€™t mesh? Think again, as the yarnmasters at Icebreaker have perfected all three. Theyโ€™ve brought all three categories together without a second thought. Their 250 Vertex Long Sleeve Half-Zip ($140) incorporates style, while also being naturally renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable. 

HYDRATION

Letโ€™s take a minute to pause from shopping and remember to always hydrate. Oh wait! We also have the perfect gift to stay hydrated and also give back, why not check out our Hydro Flask products.

Hydro Flasks are perfect reusable bottles for any outdoor enthusiasts, but whatโ€™s even better, the company contributes to Parks For All. Consistently Hydro Flask has committed to giving back and have donated over $1.5 million to date.

NUTRITION THAT GIVES BACK

SOCKS THAT WALK THE WALK

Now that youโ€™re stuffed, letโ€™s finish with a great โ€œSockingโ€ stuffer. As I mentioned weโ€™re all trying to be as environmentally conscious as possible, and so is Balega. Theyโ€™ve taken huge strides at providing a comfortable sock, while keeping sustainability in mind. Thatโ€™s why all Balega packaging is printed on partially recycled boards and their manufacturing facilities use water recycling purification systems that recover up to 50% of wastewater.
