Look for the green leaf.
New Balance’s green leaf standard highlights environmentally preferred material adoption across our footwear and apparel products. For apparel that meet New Balance’s green leaf standard, at least 50% or more of the materials in a garment are sourced as environmentally preferred. For footwear that meet New Balance’s green leaf standard, at least 50% or more of the upper materials are sourced as environmentally preferred, and includes at least one environmentally preferred sole ingredient. A material can be environmentally preferred based on its physical characteristics (for example recycled polyester) or more sustainable sourcing practices. Please refer to the garment care label, footwear hangtag, or the product listing on www.newbalance.com for the material details of any product.
