Reduce and Recycle
Vibram has always researched new solutions that respect the environment. With this in mind, Vibram developed in 1994 a pioneering eco-compound Vibram ECOSTEP that is suitable for the soles of light outdoor, and casual footwear. Capable of reducing both waste and the use of virgin materials by up to 50%, ECOSTEP is the worldwide recycled rubber reference for soling applications.
The rubber scrap generated by our production process is recycled in order to produce the Vibram ECOSTEP family of compounds. The materials re-used in Vibram ECO compounds can also be used in other applications such as the bottom of motorways in order to lower the noise level, or as playground surfacing to soften the impact of falls.
