It is estimated that each year, around 300 million pairs of shoes are sent to landfills because they cannot be recycled. One reason for this waste is that most casual shoes are not stitched. Instead, they are bonded and glued together. This makes them cheaper, but also very difficult to repair. Springwise has previously highlighted some innovations for recycling clothing. These have included clothing made from food waste and vegan ‘leather’ trainers. Now, a student at the Dublin Institute of Technology, in Ireland, has come up with a possible solution to shoe waste.
