Eco innovation: Reebok’s compostable sneaker

The race is on for brands to find more sustainable materials for their products and Reebok has taken to the challenge very seriously! In the October 2017 issue of Natural Awakenings magazine, you will find an article about Reeboks new innovative sustainable closed loop sneakers.

“Reebok is introducing a completely compostable sneaker designed to neither harm the environment when created nor potentially clog a landfill when discarded. The shoe’s upper section is made of sustainable organic cotton, while the sole is derived from industrially grown corn, harvested when it’s older and tougher. Even the eyelets are stitched, using no metal or plastic.”

Now this is truly a step in the right direction!
