The Finnish outdoor brand Halti reports that its autumn and winter footwear collection has reached a new level of sustainability: 50 percent of the footwear collection is made of recycled material, and the shoes in question are made with at least 60 percent recycled material obtained from post-consumer plastic PET bottles. All shoes are free of environmentally harmful chemicals and substances (PFC and PVC free). Starting this season, Halti shoes will be delivered in uncolored brown cardboard boxes that are not printed with non-recyclable multicolor plastic foil. This saves large amounts of water and protects the environment. The cardboard boxes are easy to recycle as they do not contain glue or plastic.
In its latest press release, Halti points out that the brand focuses on quality, recycled materials and durable design and encourages its customers to wear the shoes as long as possible. Halti’s ambitious goal is to be carbon neutral by 2022. To achieve this goal, the Finnish brand is already fully transparent about its production and publishes the list of its factories around the globe online. Each shoe factory is audited, tested and trained by an internationally renowned organization, amfori BSCI.
