The huge impact of shoes
Shoes. We wear them all the time. And they can make a great entry.
Every year there are over 23 billions shoes produced worldwide, most of them in Asia.
In earlier days (1950), shoes lasted for more than 1 year. Nowadays, we use 2.6 pair of shoes every year.
And what happens worldwide when shoes are worn-out?
They end up on landfills.
Shoes take on average 50 years to decompose.
And during that process a lot of chemicals are being released.
Because shoes simply require a lot of chemicals to produce.
An example for the worst is Ethylene Vinyl Acetate, often used in sport shoes.
It decomposes in about 1000 years.
Who thinks shoes have only an impact when they are worn-out is wrong.
Producing one pair of shoes emits about 30 kilograms of CO2.
And there is a lot of material not being used when cutting the leather and other materials, causing a lot of additional waste.
The idea that leather is a waste product of the meat industry is also a myth.
Cows are specifically being bred for the shoe industry.
Step by step consumers are becoming aware of the environmental impact of shoes.
And that something needs to change.
