Ethical training clothing and equipment

#1 Postby AEscalante1 » Tue Mar 10, 2009 1:13 pm

I was wondering if anyone knew of any equipment (especially clothing) that is not produced in terrible conditions? I buy my clothing from discount stores so as not to spend upwards of $20 USD on a simple shirt that wicks. I'm really tried of looking at clothing and seeing that it was producing in Vietnam or Thailand and then seeing that it costs over $20.

I'm also looking for good vegan running shoes if anyone knows any. I have some vegan New Balances but was wondering if anyone knew anything else.

Thanks!

DIY

or go to Goodwill, at least then you won't be putting your money towards production.

they seem to work fine but im not an expert runner. I was using new balance but they seem to break apart to easily and also its produced outside of america, which always makes me cringe when its an american company.
