Unless we take action, by 2050 our oceans will contain more plastic than fish. Zouri Shoes was born to face this challenge. It is a brand that creates shoes in an entirely sustainable manner using plastic collected from the oceans.
Inspired in the japanese culture, their products are not aimed to be associated with a trend but instead to be a lifetime product, timeless in its design. Each pair of shoes takes 11 hours to be made using 6 plastic bottles collected from beaches and other sustainable materials such as pineapple leather (pinatex) and natural rubber.
Attention is also given to the materials in which they are packed in (organic cotton bag and a recycled paper shoebox) - creating an entirely sustainable product lifecycle. Furthermore, their products are entirely handmade in an ethical manner, being produced in a certified factory in the north of Portugal that gives fair employment to local artisans. This way, Zouri shoes intends to change the world for the better, one step at a time.
