About Franco 920 Skate

After selling out twice, our Franco 920 sneaker in black is back! This is a Trash Planet favourite: inspired by the 90's and skate culture with a contemporary streetwear twist.

These shoes are ethically made by local artisans just outside of Porto, Portugal in our small family-owned factory. The sporty, timeless design and versatile colourway will make these your go-to pair for any off-duty look. The removable biodegradable insole offers maximum comfort, whilst the impeccable finish ensures these sneakers are made to last.

The 920 stitching signifies the date they were designed (September 2020). No sneaker will ever be made the same again.

About Trash Planet

TRASH PLANET is a small independent footwear business based just outside of Bristol in the United Kingdom. We consider our shoes to be the future of sustainable vegan footwear. We were tired of unethically made, unsustainable plastic footwear and bland sustainable styles so we went on a mission to create Trash Planet and redefine sustainability ourselves.

It took us on a journey of two years through tens of factories, hundreds of materials, and thousands of miles through multiple countries in a 20-year-old car to make a sneaker that we're proud of.

We create very limited collections of high-quality sneakers that are all vegan, at least 50% recycled and ethically made in Europe. We also plant 15 trees to offset more carbon than ever put out during production, and you can recycle your sneakers with us as part of our TakeBack Scheme to make sure no sneaker ever ends up in landfill.

Here's what's in your shoes...
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!

Seriously Comfortable... and Biodegradable.

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.

Sweetcorn 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.

And Our 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 to £20 off your next pair of Trash Planet sneakers. It's our way of saying thank you for supporting us and for helping the planet.

Our War on Carbon

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 5,000 trees!

Here's to a greener, cleaner planet!
