Looking to cut down your plastic footprint? Look no further than your weekly shop, as Lidl is introducing its first shoes made from 25% recycled ocean-bound plastic – and they’re on sale from Thursday in stores across the borough.
The discount supermarket has said the shoe is being made with 25% recycled ocean bound plastic and 75% recycled polyester, as part of its wider commitment to sustainable sourcing.
The eco-conscious kicks are made with 25% recycled plastic drinks bottles collected from beaches, islands and coastal regions in Asia that would have otherwise polluted the sea.
Lidl have said their range of recycled plastic trainers has so far prevented over 150,000 bottles from entering the ocean, which is great news for the marine environment.
The shoes are as pretty as they are planet-friendly, available in three designs to suit any style – laced options in soft grey or classic black for men, and a slip on version in blush pink and laced grey for women. They’re comfy too, with a memory foam insole that adapts perfectly to your feet for a super comfortable fit that will leave you walking on air, whilst a breathable knitted upper and textile lining also makes them perfect for summer strolls.
Available in sizes 4 – 11.5, check out the range on your next visit to Lidl from Thursday, July 23.
