Here are ‘vegan’ sneakers that are plant-based and biodegradable
Ever since Veja, a French shoe brand, was founded fourteen years ago, it has been trying to make shoe production more ethical and environment-friendly. And the company’s latest offering, the Campo sneaker, is an impressive proof of that.
After working relentlessly for the past five years, Veja finally introduced these ‘vegan’ sneakers that are made of waxed canvas and are fully biodegradable.
In the words of Fast Company : “The sneaker is made from canvas that has been waxed with a compound made from corn waste. The entire shoe is made from clean, bio-based materials, but it does look remarkably like leather. The point of this exercise was not just to create a cool, leather-like shoe, but to prove that, with a little effort, it is possible for brands to stay on top of trends without contributing to the fashion industry’s pollution.”
