stories and stimulus from a consumer insight consultant


Don’t know what to do with your old jeans? How about wearing them on your feet?! is an offshoot of UK footwear manufacturer Softwalker that offers just such a service; you send in an old pair and they will ‘turn your blue jeans into green sandals’.

The impressive website explains not only the benefits of recycling clothing but also makes of a point of detailing the minimal carbon footprint involved in the creation and purchasing of these sandals-
