These Converse Sneakers Are Made From Used Plastic Bottles

For the eco-conscious sneakerhead!

( We recently showed you some stylish shoes made from sustainable materials, but we've still got a long way to go when it comes to having eco-friendly footwear options. Good news is that brands are realizing the need for more sustainable apparel. One of these brands is Converse, which has a new line of kicks called the Renew Collection. It features the brand's signature silhouettes in fresh new colors and fabric made from recycled materials!


The Renew Collection includes the skater-style sneakers the brand has become known for, decked out in bright-but-wearable colors. Each shoe's canvas upper is crafted from 100% recycled polyester made from used plastic bottles. Converse teamed up with U.K.-based recycling company First Mile to source plastic bottles from developing countries, which were then broken into flakes, melted, and processed into fabric. If you take a closer look, you might notice that many of the sneakers feature the phrase "Life's too short to waste" on them.
