We care about the footprint we leave - which is why, as a part of our commitment to the planet, we have innovated a new, exclusive technology to create sustainable soles that helps clean and filter polluted water.
But how does it work? Let us break it down:
Step 1: Harvesting Algae Biomass
When harvested, water containing algae is filtered and safely released back into the environment, providing clean water for fish and other wildlife.
Step 2: Drying the Algae Flakes
Once the algae biomass has been harvested, it is sundried, creating a firm material known as “dried algae flakes.”
Step 3: Grinding the Algae Powder
When dry, the algae flakes are ground into a fine powder.
Step 4: Creating CleanStep™
The algae powder is mixed with a substance called Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR), which is used to create a sustainable rubber-like material (go figure).
