SALUBATA / Shoes from plastic wastes.

SALUBATA

Problem Summary
More than 5 trillion plastics pieces still afloat!
381 million tonnes of plastics produced annually!
* 90.5% of these plastics wastes has never been recycled! (plastics are converted to plastics = more plastics!; p>0.05).
Solution Summary
Modular shoes recycled from plastic wastes which enables you to change as many as shoes as possible with same sole just by changing the flaps, thus significantly reducing the global carbon footprint and cost of wearing at least an extra shoe. Global impact of carbon footprint would become negligible, wastes generated from these shoes are also being used to produce same shoe.
