The specifics

Even if your company doesn’t use circular shoes yet, you can participate by collecting work and safety shoes whenever possible. The only condition is that you opt for circular models when purchasing new shoes. This will help phase out non-circular work and safety shoes, especially if multiple brands start participating as well. The collected shoes are picked up, sorted at a central location and taken apart. Raw materials are then recovered from the disassembled shoe components using existing and new recycling techniques. These raw materials are used in new products, including in work and safety shoes.

Want to contribute to a circular system? By joining the Circular Footwear Alliance, you bring a world without waste one step closer. We do, however, ask that you invest in circular work and safety shoes. After all, these are shoes that can be recycled well.
