Dear community, to set an example for more sustainability, a Green Leaf category was launched by New Balance. Perfect for all those who pay special attention to sustainability when shopping, because the symbols will make things easier for you. If you want to learn more about the guidelines of the category, then you are right here.
What does the Green Leaf symbol stand for?
If you've been around the New Balance website recently, you'll maybe have noticed the little green leafs on some items. These symbols ultimately identify only products that meet the standards for the use of environmentally friendly materials.
This means that New Balance clothing and sneakers bearing the Green Leaf are made from at least 50% organic or recycled materials. You will also be provided with detailed material information for each item.
It's a great way to shop with a better conscience! If you've really got the urge to browse through the sustainable category, we've got you covered. We have put together a top selection of products for you.
