recycled plastic bottles become our laces and mesh
we tested organic cotton laces, but they didn't hold up. we opted for 100% recycled polyester laces.
they're super durable, easy to clean and stay looking fresh for even longer. they're recyclable too!
we use waste fibres from trees and the kenaf plant to create our insoles.
they're also orthopedic to provide optimum comfort alongside our premium cushioning.
75% recycled. 0% compromise on durability.
2 years of testing and development results in our iconic soles being optimised to last. we've combined 75% recycled rubber with 25% high-quality natural rubber to create a superior blend for reinforced strength.
we've also added extra thickness to the most common break points to provide even more support where it matters most.
corn just got even sweeter
our groundbreaking new lining is a feature in all of our sneakers.
it's made from 70% sweetcorn fibers, which are waste from the agricultural industry and 30% recycled pet.
plastic doesn't belong in our oceans
that's why we work closely with a global ocean clean-up initiative in spain to bring value to waste.
our mesh and laces are made with 100% recycled plastic.
so far, an estimated 600 tons of waste have been extracted from our oceans.
footwear doesn't belong in landfill
so let's make sure your shoes never end up there. when you're finished with your footwear you can send them back to us for recycling and we'll take care of the rest.
in return, you'll get £10 off your next pair of trash planet sneakers.
it's our way of saying thank you for supporting us and for helping the planet.
15 trees at a time
we always want to do better. that's why we'll plant 15 trees for every single pair of trash planet sneakers purchased.
but - it gets better: our mangroves absorb up to 4 times the amount of carbon compared to standard forests.
so far, you've helped us plant over 6,000 trees!
here's to a greener, cleaner planet!
