Change is a marathon, not a sprint, each stride bringing us closer to our goal. It is with this belief that Puma says it created Run Puma x First Mile, a collection of sustainable running gear featuring pieces made from at least 47% recycled materials. But the range is about more than turning plastic into product. Puma says the collaboration is rooted in cooperative opportunity and human connection — common threads that unite those trying to do better. Empowered people, cleaner planet — from the First Mile forward.
The sustainable range of running apparel features stylish workout gear for men and women, giving you the comfort you need to beat your best, and the peace of mind to know your gear is kinder to the planet. First Mile works with waste collection communities in Taiwan, Haiti, and Honduras to create jobs and positive social impact. The yarn in this collection is made from post-consumer plastic collected in Taiwan.
The women’s range includes Run Puma x First Mile Tank (R799), First Mile Woven Jacket (R1,999), First Mile High-Impact Bra (R899), First Mile 7/8 tights (R999).
