We are happy to introduce our all new Ultra Zero Waste sneakers from our upcoming green life collection. The shoe is vegan and made of post-consumer recycled plastics and organic materials.
The shoe will be released in grey and white with a green inner section.
The tops of the shoe are made up 50% of common PET post-consumer plastic, and 50% recycled polyurethane plastic (faux leather) free of harmful solvents like DMF.
The insole are made of organic material derived from sugar cane.
TR-EECell is a bio-based cross-linked polyethylene foam. The product consists almost entirely of raw materials derived from biomass (sugar cane). The process of exploiting the sugar cane usually involves five squeezing steps: The juice from the first two steps is destined for the production of brown sugar for human consumption, while the remaining three steps generate a less valuable juice and not suitable for the production of food sugar.
The ethanol necessary for our foam comes from fermented sugar cane juices extracted during the last three squeezing steps, therefore unsuitable for human consumption. From the polymerization of this ethanol the polymers necessary for the production of bio-based PE foam are obtained. Furthermore, even the remaining parts of the sugar cane are not wasted: the final residues of the juices (bagasse) are incinerated, thus producing energy used in the production process of sugar and ethanol and thus giving a further and significant contribution to sustainability.
The sole is made of recycled rubber.
The Ultra Zero waste have a comfortable skater-shoe design for everyday use. You can move in comfort, style and with no plastic waste.
R3 Concept is dedicated to diverting and eliminating waste from landfills by repurposing commonly recycled plastics. R3 Shoes are made with the commitment to being eco-friendly, zero-waste, and vegan.
