Green shoes

Down to Earth - - ON THE WEB -

Any­one for en­vi­ron­ment-friendly shoes? If yes, then contact Eco-Shoes. It is one among the 20 en­vi­ron­ment-friendly start-ups from de­vel­op­ing coun­tries that were given the SEED Awards this year. Its busi­ness model is sim­ple. Dis­abled shoe­mak­ers pur­chase tyres from fam­i­lies who live on scrap­yards and process the ma­te­rial into shoes. Cus­tomers place or­ders on­line. The shoes are also sent to dis­tri­bu­tion out­lets for sale in the mar­ket.
