The Runka.com website was born out of a concern that all of us share in preserving our environment. The site provides options for purchasing both practical and exotic products that promote sustainability and the use of more eco-friendly materials.

The founders of Runka.com have been involved in recycling businesses for over 25 years. This site was created when they recognized that the green industry is typically too product specific for most people to find options that are available to them when searching for environmentally friendly alternatives.
We are not a site that promotes one product or even one genre of sustainable, recycled materials. Rather, we are a gathering place for those that share our commitment to taking practical steps toward buying and using products that are good for the planet.
We represent companies that manufacture goods that are practical and useful in our everyday lives. We also support artists that create some of the most beautiful works of art utilizing recycled and or, sustainable materials.
All of the companies and artisans of the items we offer utilize methods of manufacturing that are proven safe to the environment. In addition, we proudly support the members of the Fair Trade Federation for goods that are created in third world countries. This organization is committed to ensuring fair wages and suitable working conditions in impoverished regions of the globe.
Runka.com offers a wide variety of products at the best possible prices. Our goal is to provide one stop shopping for all environmentally friendly products. We are committed to growing the site by continuously adding new products from sources throughout the world. To show our commitment we urge you to share with us items that we may not currently offer. We will do our best to become a source for anything that promotes a healthier environment and a better way of life.
In 2010 Runka.com was acknowledged for 25 years of deication to the recycling industry and nominated for the International Green Industry Hall of Fame award. One of six runner ups RUNKA.com received the Award of Excellence.
