KOKOLU, a B Corp company releases its first sustainable sneaker made from innovative and sustainable 3D knitting technology and GreenKSole® making it a super lightweight and durable sneaker. These sneakers made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic provide comfort for all day wear.
Made from waterless and eco-friendly dye technology, these sneakers are helping take steps towards a low-carbon footprint. Working with one of the most innovative manufacturing partners in the industry, KOKOLU's recycled PET Fiber is made out of post-consumer recycled plastic sourced from Eastern China. The recycled plastic is melted and extruded, therefore saving landfill space. By recycling and reusing these plastic bottles, it reduces oil consumption by 6 tons and reduces dioxide emission by 32 tons, thereby lowering the total carbon footprint.
"We are so proud of the amazing sneakers we have designed that are sustainable. It's exciting to finally be launching them within the United States." Chief Brand Officer, Gigi Ji
