Understanding Sustainable Clothing this Christmas

Sustainability, and its importance, will be a growing topic for conversation in every home this Christmas.

More and more people are becoming conscious about making subtle changes to lessen their impact on the environment.

In the world of fashion, this means there is a growing desire for clothing that not only has a stylish appearance, but is also produced in an ethical and environmentally friendly manner.

But what precisely defines a garment as sustainable?

Intersport Elverys is striving to make positive an increasing positive impact on our planet, particularly in regard to the products we sell.

Impact Choice is the first step in that journey and it is a criteria, devised by Intersport, which products must meet if they are to be deemed positively impact on the environment.

80% of our carbon footprint comes from the production and materials used in the products we sell. That is why these areas are a key focus for Impact Choice.

Impact Choice makes identification between product and planet protection much simpler.

To see more on certifications and criteria, check out Intersport’s Blog. 

Regardless of the brand’s terminology, for a product to be highlighted as Impact Choice it must meet at least one of the two Impact Choice criteria.

– The entire product must be certified by a recognised standard.

– At least one main component must use a minimum of 50% responsible materials or technologies.

Forbidden Criteria

Regardless of the criteria above, a product will not be considered Impact Choice if it contains:

– PFCs

– Biocides

– Wool from mulesed sheep

– Down/feathers from live-plucked or force fed birds

Find a full list of approved standards, certifications, materials and technologies via the link below.


A 2020 study conducted by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation revealed that transitioning to circular fashion has the potential to significantly decrease the carbon footprint of clothing worldwide, by a staggering 39%.

We take pride in leading this movement, and you can come onboard with some of these items as gifts to you, or gifts to a loved one this Christmas!

Why Sustainable Runners make great Gifts Christmas 2023

Running shoes, just like any other product, have an impact on the environment. Nevertheless, the narrative is being transformed by the emergence of eco-friendly running shoes.

The Environmental Impact

From the extraction of raw materials to production, and finally disposal, the lifecycle of a typical running shoe can have a significant toll on the environment.

When it comes to running shoes, the sustainable options really stand out. These shoes are made with recycled materials, produced using environmentally-friendly methods, and manufactured with ethical labour practises.

As a result, they have a much smaller impact. By selecting these options, you are not only helping the environment, but also endorsing a conscientious approach to business.

Performance Meets Sustainability

It’s a common misconception that sustainability means sacrificing durability or effectiveness. But that statement is inaccurate.

Modern running shoes that prioritise sustainability offer the perfect blend of style and environmental consciousness. These products are crafted to deliver exceptional performance while staying true to their commitment to the environment.

It’s impressive to see how brands have made significant investments in research and development to ensure that sustainable materials offer the same, if not better, levels of comfort, support, and durability compared to their traditional counterparts.

Ireland Embraces Sustainable Runners

Ireland has long been associated for its breath-taking landscapes, unspoiled coasts, and a deep appreciation for the natural world, something every Irish person is proud of and wants to protect.

And that deep-rooted culture is now seeping down to their clothing and footwear.

In Ireland, there has been a noticeable shift in consumer behaviour in recent years. It seems that Irish sports enthusiasts and athletes are increasingly embracing sustainable options, whether it’s due to growing awareness, global trends, or that deep connection to nature.

Intersport Elverys are at the forefront of making eco-friendly sports gear more accessible, showing that sustainability is not just a passing fad, but a vision for the future.

Recent surveys and market research have shown that a growing number of Irish shoppers, particularly those in the 25-44 age group, are increasingly prioritising the environmental impact of their athletic footwear purchases.

Below, you are going to discover more about out Top 8 Sustainable Runners that would suit gifts this Christmas from all the leading brands such as Nike, Brooks, ASICS, ON Running and more.

Caring for Your Sustainable Christmas Runners Gifts

Being mindful of the sustainable movement goes beyond simply purchasing environmentally-friendly shoes; it also involves properly maintaining them to promote durability and reduce our ecological footprint.

Cleaning Tips

Opting for eco-friendly cleaning methods and conserving water not only benefits the environment, but also helps prolong the lifespan of your shoes.

Consider using biodegradable cleaning agents and spot-cleaning methods. Discover the incredible power of a simple mixture of baking soda and water to tackle even the toughest stains.

It’s important to keep in mind that air-drying your shoes away from direct sunlight is the optimal choice for preserving their integrity.

Recycling & Disposal

Over time, even the most durable running shoes will reach the end of their lifespan.

However, it is important to find alternative solutions rather than simply disposing of them in a landfill.

It’s great to see that many brands are now offering recycling programmes for shoes, allowing them to be repurposed or broken down in environmentally-friendly ways.

Before discarding your shoes, it’s always worth checking if there’s a collection point nearby or considering donating them if they’re still in good condition.

Tips for Shopping for Sustainable Gifts this Christmas

In a market saturated with eco-friendly claims, it’s crucial to distinguish authentic sustainable practises from mere marketing strategies.

Equip yourself with knowledge and make well-informed choices every time you go shopping. Read more on Impact Choice here and what criteria products have to meet before we tag them with the Impact label.

Verifying Certifications

Authentic sustainable products are typically accompanied by certifications that confirm their eco-friendliness.

When shopping, keep an eye out for labels that indicate ethical practises, such as “Fair Trade,” “Organic,” or certifications from industry organisations that promote sustainability. It’s important to consider the impact of your purchases on the environment and choose brands that are committed to sustainability.

By doing so, you can make a positive difference and support companies that prioritise environmental causes.

Get to know the different types of materials that are commonly used in shoe manufacturing, with a focus on sustainability.

Organic cotton, recycled PET, Tencel, and natural rubber are just a few of the sustainable materials that come to mind. Items crafted from these materials typically have a reduced ecological footprint when compared to their less eco-friendly alternatives.


So, this Christmas do your bit for our future by making an IMPACT.
