I have come across another interesting company producing sustainable and recyclable sneakers,
100% Made in Italy, called WOMSH, which stands for Word of Mouth Shoes to promote the idea that the products they make can spread the message of respect for the environment.
Sustainability as I go along and dig into it, it is a journey rather than a milestone itself: this brand keeps improving its products to become more sustainable incrementally let’s say: they use recycled material for the upper part of the shoe, such as appleskin, material originated from plastic bottles and recycled cotton. So most of the shoe components are actually made with recycled materials with the exception for the soles which can trigger the recycle process after they are gone by being collected and repurposed to create other items, in this specific example to produce the flooring for children playgrounds, and back in 2018 already 1500 pair of sneakers were already being recycled in this way.
WOMSH does also good for the planet as they participate to the Zero Impact initiative promoted by Lifegate which aims to calculate, reduce and offset CO2 emissions generated as part of the manufacturing process.
They support worldwide shipping and their collections looks pretty good to me, it is a good opportunity to buy sneakers made with good sustainability practices.
