Waste

23 billion pairs of shoes are made around the world every year.

Not only are too many shoes being produced every year, too many end up going straight to landfill within one year. We are proud that Camper shoes are high quality, long-lasting and consider the planet by trying to use better materials. Camper shoes belong on feet, not landfill. And we have a plan for both their second life and their end-of-life.

You can help us to be better in three ways: Firstly, by caring for your shoes so that they last longer; secondly by repairing them, and thirdly by sending them back to us when you can't use them anymore. Just keeping a pair of shoes for just nine months longer can reduce carbon impact by around 20-30%.

Second Life
Avoiding shoes to landfill is tough, but we´re working on ways to give new life to old shoes.

If nothing can be done, shoes are processed and converted into green energy or raw materials used for the creation of new products like outdoor flooring.
ReWornShoes are repaired, inspected and quality-checked to be donating to communities in need.
