Today’s society is very aware of the impact we have on the environment and the importance of protecting our resources for future generations. There are huge movements campaigning against single-use plastic or advocating recycling so that we can reverse (or at least slow) the damage we have already caused.
You have probably already figured out how you personally can contribute, whether that’s by creating and using a compost pile, using recycled products, tending to your garden, or trying to live a zero waste lifestyle. Some of these solutions require a huge lifestyle change that can be a struggle to maintain, and not everyone wants to walk around wearing hemp clothes and shoes that have been patched up several times.
Shwezu is here to help! We have a new range of flip flops with soles made of recycled tyre tread and straps of genuine leather that make your feet look fab while reducing your carbon footprint. Did you know that one tyre makes 10 flip flops?
This collaboration between GRRITT and Shwezu has created a stylish but durable, environmentally-friendly product that is guaranteed to last for 2 years. How often do we buy cheap plastic flip flops that only last a couple of months? Isn’t it better to pay a little more for a better-quality product that will last longer than buy several cheaper items that break quickly and create more waste?
As with all our products, this greenovative recycled tyre product is Proudly South African. In addition, to further help you in your carbon-footprint-reducing journey, with every pair of GRRITT flip flops we’ve included a biodegradable shoe bag, a free packet of organic growmix and an indigenous seed. What a wonderful way to support local businesses while reducing your carbon footprint.
