The huge problem of plastic floating in our oceans is only now starting to be sorted. Duuo are putting the collected plastic bottles from our sea to good use and have created 100% animal free sneakers made from recycled plastic bottles. The Duuo vegan sneakers have been launched via Kickstarter this week and have successfully raised the required pledge goal to make the jump into production thanks to over 300 backers.
Pairs are available from €59 or roughly £52 allowing early bird backers to receive a 40% saving off the estimated retail price of €99. If all goes well worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around November 2019.
“Every change starts with a first step. Our goal is to become a 100% vegan brand through this campaign. We are redefining and aligning our core values with our actions so we can be proud of our products. We´re presenting our first vegan model: Fenix. We’ve created our new model called FENIX by focusing on three main criteria: vegan, sustainable and without sacrificing top-class design. You don’t need to use animals to create comfortable, breathable, environment-friendly shoes at a reasonable price.“
