At ECOALF we are always thinking ahead and working with the latest innovation and technology.

Additional benefits include:

-Last : the last of the sneaker is now reinforced to provide greater support and comfort.

-Outsole: the outsole provides a stronger grip and now we´ve also increased the proportion of sustainable material to obtain a high-performing sneaker upgrading its durability and lightness.

ORIGEN

The project began in September 2015 thanks to the support of the HAP Foundation and Ecoembes. During this years more than 33 fishing ports from Spain, 3000 fishermen and 462 boats managed to remove more than 250 tonnes of trash from the bottom of the sea.

Every day the fisherman deposit the garbage collected in the containers. The 800 liter capacity containers are hauled every fifteen days.

The garbage from each port is sent to the recycling plant where it is classified. The recovered PET is stored, while the rest of the debris is recycled using conventional methods.
