Refurbished Shoe Program

What is the Refurbished Shoe Program?

Running shoes are made with synthetic materials, the average pair has a carbon footprint of about 30 pounds (13.6 kgs) of carbon dioxide equivalent, according to one study. And since the ever-growing athletic footwear market is expected to produce 625.98 million pairs by 2025, that’s a major impact on our planet.

Brooks Running India is introducing a refurbished running shoes program to address the challenges of waste and carbon emissions in the fitness & running gear industry, while also promoting affordability and accessibility for everyone. The program aims to reduce the demand for new shoes and the associated carbon emissions by refurbishing and repairing used shoes. This helps to conserve resources and protect the environment.

At the same time, the program makes Brooks running shoes more affordable and accessible to a wider audience, including those who may not have access to new shoes or have limited financial resources.

Additionally, the program promotes sustainability by encouraging the circular economy, reducing waste, and helping the needy by making adequate footwear accessible to all.

Overall, the refurbished running shoes program aligns with Brooks Running India's commitment to sustainability, innovation, and social responsibility.

Here’s a brief summary of how Brooks Running India plans to address various problems with our Refurbished Shoes Program.

Reduce Raw Material Production: Refurbishing running shoes involves repairing and refurbishing used shoes, which can reduce the demand for new shoes and the production of new raw materials. This reduces the carbon footprint associated with the extraction, manufacturing, and transportation of new shoe materials.

Reduce Waste: Refurbishing running shoes also helps reduce waste, as it prevents used shoes from being discarded and ending up in landfills or incinerators. This reduces the carbon footprint associated with waste management.

Energy Savings: Refurbishing running shoes generally requires less energy than producing new shoes, as it does not involve the same level of manufacturing processes, transportation, or disposal. Therefore, it can help reduce the carbon footprint associated with energy consumption in shoe production.

Affordability: Refurbished running shoes are generally more affordable than new shoes, making them accessible to people with limited financial resources. This can help ensure that everyone has access to adequate footwear, which is essential for physical activity, comfort, and overall well-being.

Accessibility: Refurbished running shoes can also be distributed to communities where access to new shoes may be limited, such as in developing countries or in underprivileged neighbourhoods. This can help promote physical activity and reduce the risk of foot injuries and infections.

Sustainability: Refurbishing running shoes promotes sustainability by reducing waste and the demand for new shoes, which can help conserve resources and protect the environment. This can help create a more equitable and sustainable future for everyone, including the needy.

In summary, using refurbished running shoes can help reduce carbon emissions by reducing the demand for new raw materials, reducing waste, saving energy, and promoting the circular economy & help the needy by promoting affordability and accessibility.
