 Aldo is set to launch its first ever sustainable shoe. Modern, casual slip-ons and wear-everywhere sneakers made from low-impact and recycled materials, the RPPL (pronounced Ripple) is made from organic and recycled products.
The sole is formulated with Bloom Foam, an innovative material derived from lake algae biomass. Also, each pair of RPPL sneakers is made with a knit fabricated from recycled plastic bottles.
Yarn made from plastic water bottles saves wastage that would otherwise go to landfills, limits the use of new raw materials and prevents plastic from entering and polluting the oceans.
According to the company, the RPPL collection will keep 46 tonnes of carbon dioxide out of our atmosphere and represents a combined total of 2.5 million litres of clean, filtered water that goes back into precious waterways, protecting animal and plant life and reducing the need for fossil fuels. Even the box is made from 100 per cent recycled materials.
This collection is available across all Aldo stores and online on www.6thstreet.com
