We're speaking to companies who don't know what to do with shoes when they come to their end of their working life. That's why they partner with us where we offer a scheme where we'll reuse or recycle ANY brand of shoes as a FREE service to look after you and look after the planet.
Over 300M pairs of shoes are thrown out a year in the UK
Shoes can take 30-40 years to decompose in landfill
Recycling shoes isn't actually a straightforward process due to the various components and materials can be used in the design of the shoe can make it a little more complicated.
Our recycling scheme uses an unique process which breaks down the material, separates them and then grounds them down into very fine particles ready to be used again.
We take ANY brand of footwear as part of our recycling scheme.
68% of the shoes sent back to us are reused for people in need
30% are ground down and made into new products
Less than 1% of all the material is sent for processing to energy from waste = ZERO WASTE
One day, your shoes might come back as...
Or even a child's play area...
We'll work together to find the best way of maximising sustainability for you or your company. Let's do our bit in saving the planet together.
