With Greensole footwear, you can both look stylish and feel good as you take a step towards conserving the environment. Each pair of slippers is made by upcycling old, discarded footwear. The soles of old shoes are remelted and molded to make new soles, while rewashed canvas with dye prints is used to make comfortable uppers. In this way, it keeps old footwear away from landfills.
A part of the revenue from your purchase also goes towards refurbishing and donating footwear to children in need. So far, Greensole’s efforts have brought over 1 lakh smiles across 350 villages in India. The footwear has helped the children walk to schools from long distances, preventing them from diseases caused by unprotected feet.
Worldwide every year more than 35,00,00,000 pairs of shoes are discarded, while as per the recent report by WHO, 1.5 billion people are infected by diseases that could be prevented by wearing proper footwear.
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.
