Yes! You read the title correctly. Shoes made out of water bottles!
A San Francisco start-up company called Rothy’s has started a line of shoes made out of plastic water bottles. Each shoe is made out of 3 plastic water bottles. The bottles are fused into a filament fibre making it into a 100% environmentally friendly. It takes as little as 6 minutes to manufacture a pair using 3D knit technology and the shoes are 100% recyclable.
Rothy’s wants to lead a sustainable and colourful approach to going green and we are behind them all the way. As the fashion industry is the second biggest polluter in the world after the oil industry, damn right we stand behind any company that is chooses to make fashion more sustainable.
