World Environment Day is celebrated on 5 June every year and is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging awareness and action for the protection of our environment. This day has been honored since 1972, so let us celebrate it together.
Since day one we wanted to do more. More for the environment and more for our consumers. That is why we take a stand in a more environmental world, trying to invent styles that focus on this matter. We want you to celebrate World Environment Day with us, to show how much we all care.
To care for ourselves we must care for nature. We always work from the approach: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and with respect for the environment and our surroundings, we have added multiple initiatives to our work process. We use cork in our insoles, which is a natural and environmentally friendly material where only the bark is stripped to harvest the cork. Meanwhile, the sustainability of production and the easy recycling of cork products and by-products are two of its most distinctive aspects.
Introducing our newest initiative: FIFTY
When WODEN uses the name FIFTY it means we use at least 50% of fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles. The recycled polyester is used for both upper, lining, and backing in our sneakers.
Using recycled plastic is part of our sustainable approach towards the production of sneakers and ensuring a greener footprint.
Introducing Ydun FIFTY
These sneakers are crafted in calf suede, with polyester made from at least 50% recycled plastic as part of our FIFTY concept. The backing material of the sneaker consists of at least 50% recycled polyester from PET bottles. The firm heel cap ensures stability and keeps the shoe firmly in place. The removable insole of naturally shock-absorbing cork provides a heathy environment for your feet. Midsole of ultra-soft PU. The Natural soft midsole is made from dual-density PU, which ensures an ultra-soft walking experience. The outsole is made from minimum 10% recycled rubber mixed with ordinary rubber and natural rubber.
We do not compromise with anything, when we create new styles. We always seek a greener footprint without compromising with the quality of the sneakers.
