Natural Rubber, recycled materials and wool
Natural rubber or tree-derived rubber is completely biodegradable. Harvesting and using the product itself promotes the growth and development of renewable raw material production in the tropical regions where trees can be tapped.
Our partnering manufacturer in Mexico City uses only 100% vulcanized natural rubber soles in their production, rejecting petroleum-based synthetics for their locally abundant and environmentally friendly alternative. Waste from synthetic rubber production pose a serious environmental problem for people and the environment. Converting petroleum into synthetic rubber release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere exposing the people and ecosystems surrounding production facilities to environmental toxins and nature does not know what to do with it if material ends up our land or waters.
