This toolkit is developed in collaboration with its Originator with the purpose to enable as many people as possible to take action for sustainable shoes and social inclusion.
About the project
Shoes from tires is a project from Xinca in Argentina. Making shoes from recycled tires and fabric is a way to produce products sustainably.

More about the project
The global sneaker industry is not sustainable. Resources and labor are exploited around the world to produce shoes. In order to produce shoes in a more sustainable way this project works to involve less skilled workers and people with less opportunities to provide a way out of criminality or back into society after imprisonment while simultaneously reducing the environmental impact of a new product.
