At Native Shoes, we believe in our purpose to make it easy for all to Live Lightly. We know the greatest ideas can come from the littlest questions, and our small steps can add up to a much bigger impact. Our flagship recycling initiative, the Native Shoes Remix™ Project recycles your well-loved shoes to give them new life in projects across the community. It's just one part of our plan to create a positive impact for our planet.
The Remix Project was born out of our purpose – encouraging everyone to ask more what ifs. We asked the question: what if we could recycle our shoes to give them a second life?
From there, we investigated ways in which we could grind and repurpose the bouncy, lightweight materials for which our shoes are known and loved.
The unique composition of Native Shoes can be reground into versatile material that is useful in the creation of seating, playground flooring, insulation and more. Other shoes are sorted and donated to good causes, or recycled via our partners across the globe. From that point – there’s no telling where your soles could turn up!
It’s easy and free to recycle your shoes – of any style, and from any brand - via the Native Shoes Remix™ Project, with help from our shipping partners via Zappos for Good).
