LIFE REWEART IS A PROJECT THAT BETS ON A 100% REAL CIRCULAR ECONOMY
MANUFACTURING PROCESS FOR VEGAN – ORGANIC – RECYCLED SHOES
4

LIFE-REWEART project objective is to generalise the use of proactive waste management at design stage and conceive a new business model, related services and tools, enabling, at design stage, the selection of the most suitable materials and processes to create a new footwear product 100% recycled, organic.

DIRECTIVES EU

The Circular Economy Strategy requires that all those responsible for public policy adopt the new model in their field of action, defining the instruments for the transition.

LIFE-REWEART project will demonstrate the concept of full recyclability of footwear and garments properly and re-using them as components for the creation of new articles, making use of an advanced 3D configurator and incorporating B2C elements which provide our initiative the look of something that can be global with local manufacturing if necessary. All materials used for project trials will be organic, chemicals free and animal free, so we want to achieve a product 100% ORGANIC, VEGANE and RECYCLED, achieving modest sales of 30.000pairs during the first year after project end.

More than 20 billion pairs of shoes are produced each year. Just one pair can produce between 1.3 and 25.3 kg of carbon dioxide. This is a waste that might not be produced if a circular economy were applied in its creation process, since 58% of the pollution comes from the manufacture of the components.Thanks to this project, the environmental impact can be reduced and a new concept of footwear can be created.
