ï»¿Recycled Footwear, Expensive, Natural Resources
Good footwear in terms of the cost to the environment is expensive. Their manufacture requires the use of many types of virgin material which reduces our diminishing natural resources, and manufacturing processes are very energy demanding.
There are now some footwear manufacturers who are bearing environmental factors in mind and turning to producing attractive and practical forms of footwear by recycling methods.
The very thought of recycling footwear makes some recycling centers shake their heads when they think of the difficulties of recycling such items because of the sheer number of different materials used in making footwear.
