Our toe puffs are made of upcycled plastic which derives from recycled materials that are regenerated and fully recycled into the production cycle for a material with excellent resilience and durability.
Our upcycled plastic is sourced from a world leader in the production of materials for footwear, and specifically toe puffs for over 5 decades and is based in Italy.
ITALIAN EXCELLENCE AND KNOW-HOW
Our supplier applies their know-how to take production scraps and repurpose the materials into a reusable material. Scraps are collected and then reduced to small fragments at a special mill. From this step, grounded material is melted in a special extruder, made by an exclusive technology and transformed in threads. The threads are cooled and then a special cutter will transform them into granules .The recycled granules are mixed with granules of the virgin polymers and used in the next production.
The GRS is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions.
