Climbing shoe recycling
Did you know that only in the Netherlands, roughly 80.000 kg of climbing shoes are thrown away every year? We’re going to stop this from happening, by collecting the worn climbing shoes at various gyms in the Netherlands (see the map below). We started the research on how to recycle them, because as of now there is no existent shoe recycling in the world. We’ve successfully developed a fitness floor to be used in the fitness area of climbing gyms. We’re talking now with climbing shoe manufacturers to start using this granulate in new climbing shoes to close the loop.
The Clean Climber Tile is a proven product that is used to satisfaction at, among other climbing gyms: Monk Rotterdam, Rijnboulder Arnhem and Klimzaal Bleau in Ghent. If you’re interested in a gym floor in the exercise area of your gym, email us for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
