nothing is lost, everything is transformed

We recycle your old shoes to make soles!

We present you our new and innovative project, to go even further in our ecofriendly approach: we collect your shoes at the end of their life to make new soles for our sneakers. An approach combining upcycling and circular economy!

To minimize the environmental impact of the manufacture of our products, we are committed to using recycled materials, including the soles of our sneakers. Since winter 2019, we are gradually replacing all the soles of our sneakers with recycled soles. Starting in February 2021, all the soles used for our sneakers will be made from recycled rubber. 
 
But we want to go even further: from now on, we can recycle your old shoes from Minuit sur Terre, as well as all your pairs of vegan shoes, into recycled soles!
 
This process is proposed by a Portuguese company, which crushes the shoes into tiny pieces, in order to make a raw material in order to create new soles that will be used for our sneakers.

our project

An ecofriendly upcycling approach!

Our soles will be composed of 30% recycled shoes and 70% recycled rubber.

The shoes are crushed to form a powder that will be integrated into the material of the soles.

Poids des chaussures

It takes 200 kg of shoes to launch a first production of 1000 pairs of soles.

 

WHICH shoes can i GIVE?

Some conditions to respect

You can give us your used pair from Minuit sur Terre, or any pair of vegan and made in Europe shoes of your choice, to participate in the recycling process.

Why only collect 100% vegan pairs? We only collect shoes that do not contain any animal material: indeed, all our products are entirely vegan, so we cannot use any animal material in the making of our soles.

Any scraps of materials that cannot be recycled can also be used in our manufacturing process.
