HOW MELISSA PLASTIC SHOES ARE CHANGING THE WORLD
Melissa is a leading brand of the internationally acclaimed footwear manufacturer Grendene. The thermoplastic technology for Melissa was developed exclusively by and for Grendene and is leading the way for sustainable practice for design, fashion and manufacturing. All Melissa plastic shoes are created with a zero waste ethos and particular attention to the life cycle of materials. Melissa recycles 99.9% of factory water and waste, and they recycle overstock styles into next season’s collection. Melissa is also a proud partner of many non-profit organizations, donates monthly to support local homeless children and pregnant women (as well as massive donations of shoes) and also donates part of its monthly income to developing green urban areas.
IS PLASTIC REALLY AN ECO FRIENDLY MATERIAL?
There are many different kinds of plastic and many different technologies used to manufacture, use and recycle plastic. Melissa plastic shoes are made from mono-materials, which means they can be easily disassembled and recycled. As each Melissa shoe is non-leather, they will not degrade in weather or water and are completely suitable for vegans and animal rights supporters. Have you heard of Melflex™? It is a malleable plastic, developed by Melissa that molds easily to your foot, breathes well, is hypoallergenic, odorless, neutral and natural. It even retains these amazing properties once it is recycled. Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? If you are wearing a pair of Melissa plastic shoes you will be pleased to know that you are likely to be wearing Melflex™. Yes – that’s why you are so comfortable! Want to see Melflex™ in action now? Check out our online store. There is an extra special new range of Velvet Melflex™ (Floc) - which is taking the glamour world by storm.
MELISSA SUPPORTS INNOVATIVE ART AND DESIGN OF ALL KINDS
The Melissa shoe was born out of a love for where art, design, technology and sustainability meet. So it makes sense that Melissa’s first concept store is now open in Sao Paulo. Art and music performances combine with the heartland of Melissa plastic shoes and talented up-and-coming artists are supported, creating a new façade for the store every six months. Sign up for the Melissa update to be kept in the loop with all things Melissa – here and overseas – and be part of this unique fashion revolution.
