Holly Boxall and Jordan Grayson started Trash Planet in February 2020 as part of their mission to create the world’s most sustainable sneaker brand.
Their sneakers are all made of up to 75% recycled materials and for every pair of trainers they sell, Trash Planet plants 15 new trees. So far they’ve planted over 2,000 trees, creating their own small forest in Madagascar.
The team from Trash Planet also offers a recycling scheme where if your shoes are beyond repair, or you don’t wear them as much as you used to, you can send them in for recycling and they will give you £20 off your next purchase.
They then recycle the returned trainers with their manufacturing partners or restore them and donate the trainers to a local charity.
Holly said: “We’re not afraid to push boundaries and we’ve also got some clothing drops coming that we’re excited about. We’re just testing the waters at the moment to see what people like, but we always share our designs with our followers to get their feedback."
