Manufacturing a pair of shoes involves a total of assembling upto 65 discrete parts in 360 steps, which generates 30 lbs of emissions; equivalent to leaving a 100-watt bulb burning for a week. By choosing a pair of upcycled shoes, you are reducing your dependence on virgin raw materials and taking a step towards a sustainable lifestyle. What’s more, your purchase also helps put shoes on the feet of children in need.

GreenSole

As athletes, Shriyans Bhandari and Ramesh Dhami ran hundreds of kilometres every year. They also ran through at least three to four pairs of sport shoes every year. The soles were in good condition but the shoe sides tore within months. The duo always wondered if they could find some use for the intact soles of these quality sport shoes. A bit of research led to the idea of refurbishing them into trendy slippers. That brainwave eventually spawned an eco-friendly enterprise that recycles discarded shoes into comfortable footwear, keeping them away from landfills and providing them to children in need. GreenSole also retail upcycled footwear towards building a self-sustaining social venture.
