Footwear, which once it has arrived at the end of its lifecycle, leaves an impact on the environment almost equal to zero, and which after 450 days, has a degradation in landfills equal to 85%: this is the latest innovation from SCARPA, a company founded in 1938 in Asolo, Treviso, which has always stood out for its research and innovation in outdoor and athletic footwear production. The MOJITO BIO is part of the brand’s Urban Outdoor collection for the SS2021 and is revamped in a bio key from the iconic model, which for the first time is now 100% biodegradable thanks to a use of components of vegetable origins. Intertek Green Leaf certification in fact confirms that already after 45 days in controlled conditions according to the ASTM D5511 standard, the percentage of biodegradation of the materials used in the sole, tread, and upper are between 6-8%. Compared to the previous model, MOJITO BIO presents a simplified design, thanks to the elimination of rubber toecaps and heels, thereby eliminating scraps generated during production. The processing of the knit upper has also avoided further material waste, while the elimination of the metal eyelets has further simplified the productive process. MOJITO BIO is a ‘Made in Asolo’ product and all the suppliers of the raw materials used in production are carefully selected for their innovative and sustainable industrial practices.
