A 100% REAL CIRCULAR ECONOMY MANUFACTURING PROCESS FOR VEGAN-ORGANIC-RECYCLED FOOTWEAR
The environmental impact caused by the current production of more than 23.000 million pairs of shoes every year, whether due to the consumption of the colossal amounts of raw materials necessary to make them, or the thousands of tonnes of waste generated, is motivation enough to think again when designing a shoe. Prevailing manufacturing methods and the many components that footwear usually contains, make it impossible to recycle, due to the great complexity that separating the materials implies. Upon reaching the end of their lifecycle, they inevitably end up in a rubbish dump, generating a great amount of waste and making the materials used worthless.
REWEART PROJECT is footwear production project that is capable to produce sustainable goods based in a circular economy.
We are capable to design, produce and commercialize, from an eco- workshop, vegan shoes and accessories made from recycled and organic materials with 90% less of energy and almost ZERO waste.
Further, the main differentiation and greatest challenges that we faced is the implementation of RECYCLING as an essential requisite in all of our designs.
We want to offer a tool to the new generation of people which would avoid generate more waste within footwear consume and offer the footwear industry an alternative circular production model to reduce energy consume and stop with the destructive and unsustainable shoe production.
We have managed to create a shoe based on a circular economy, an economy that reflects the way nature works, where everything is useful and the concept of rubbish doesn’t exist.
This project is funded with the support of the European Union within the framework of the LIFE programme
