Newton Running co-founders created the company in 2007 with the desire to give back and improve our world. This belief has led us to pursue sustainable business practices and a commitment to our community.
Newton Running is proud to be the first and only running company that is B Corp certified. We as a company are committed to meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency based on assessment from the non-profit B Lab.
We think we’re in good company! Other B-Corp brands include Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, Kleen Kanteen and many more! Learn how you can “Be The Change” here.
We are part of a community that is leading a global movement to redefine success in business.
Newton encourages their employees to participate in health and wellness activities during the workweek. For example: employees run or swim together at lunch, participate in races together like Bolder Boulder and 106 West The Highest Tri in the world.
