The Po-Zu shoe brand is recognized as the most environmentally responsible.
This year the British entrepreneur and owner of the Po-Zu shoe brand Sven Seagal became the most environmentally responsible shoe maker and at the same time the “Entrepreneur of the Year” according to the organizers of the PEOPLE AND ENVIRONMENT ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS 2012 award.
The idea of creating the brand came to Sigal in 2006, and the reason for its appearance was a protest against traditional shoe production, which is highly polluting the environment. He developed a design that allows you to connect the top with the sole without glue and without a significant appreciation of technology.
The method is not knowingly patented, so that other shoe companies can also switch to its use. For production, recycled materials are used. The company supports a local small business and selects suppliers among those located near the place of production of shoes. The factory in Portugal at 43% operates on renewable energy. Although the company itself remains very local - since the launch of the brand, about 50 thousand pairs of shoes have been sold, but the geography of sales includes the whole world - Canada, Japan, the countries of the Middle East, Europe.
3% of online sales are donated to charities. Last year, a special line of shoes was created for Timberland, also known for its attention to the environment. Based on materials from the site analpa.ru.
