Positive progress during Plastic Free July

Over the past month, Texon teams from around the world have been sharing their stories on ditching single-use plastic as part of the Plastic Free July challenge.

Plastic Free July inspires people to consider their everyday plastic usage and make small lifestyle changes, to highlight how we can all help to reduce the impact of plastic on our planet.

From stocking up on glass jars for food storage and opting for foods with minimal or no packaging, to cutting out plastic bags and takeaway coffee cups thanks to reusable alternatives, it has been great to hear about the new habits established.


However, that’s not all we’re doing to combat the plastic problem. At Texon, we continue to turn our sustainability passion into a tangible ambition and strive to make it easier for brands to meet their own environmental goals without compromising on performance.

How? By offering products such as Texon Halo, a heel counter made from recycled plastic bottles. Our smarter design means there’s no leftovers, minimal storage required and low transport impact:

 


We also focus on closed loop processes; by reducing reliance on virgin materials and extracting more value from any raw materials used, increasing the supply of high-quality recycled materials and zero waste to landfill.

Texon Reform is a great example of our innovation in action and as the world’s first 100% recyclable heel counter, it’s made using a completely closed loop process:

 


Don’t forget to take a look at our 2021 hero products campaign, which includes a wide range of our world-class footwear components and further demonstrates our sustainability ambition. You can also follow us on LinkedInFacebook and Instagram to keep up to date with our latest announcements.
