With more than 300 million pairs of shoes thrown away last year, in the U.S. alone (soles4souls.org), REMYXX™ is taking matters into their own feet.
It is with an uncommon marketability and distinct fashion that REMYXX are Sneakers with a Purpose™. The mission is not only to deliver an enjoyable sustainable sneaker, but also to advocate and initiate improvements in recycling. REMYXX are to be worn proudly as a means to share your eco-enthusiasm and instill the importance of products, companies, and individual behaviors that promote and demonstrate good recycling and a green-lifestyle
REMYXX cool sneakers 100% recyclable are the world’s first and only completely Landfill-Free Sneakers™. With one target in mind, REMYXX hits two critical marks as our sneakers address the importance of recycling by dressing the feet in style. REMYXX are casual comfortable lifestyle sneakers, in strong colors with clever designs for mass appeal to all types, ages, and genders. They are manufactured using a unique mix of materials that look and feel like canvas and rubber but are made entirely from a special blend of lab certified recyclable materials. With the recycling symbol prominently displayed on the uppers and the bottom sole you can tell the world that you choose to walk the green-way supporting eco-friendly behaviors for a sustainable future. It also tells the collection agencies and recycling processors what they can do with REMYXX in their second-life. Ultimately, at the end of their lifecycle, all parts of REMYXX, can be “remyxx-ed” to make new products and materials, including a new pair of REMYXX.
