Read the full story at Supply Chain Drive.

A shoe brand called New Movements will launch early this year, with its shoes designed entirely from sustainably sourced materials, Fast Company reported.

New Movements will construct its shoes from recycled materials. For example, the soles will be a combination of car tires and soles from other shoes, and laces will be made from recycled plastic bottles.

The company said its Model NM shoes are made ethically in Portugal, “which is considered to have the best shoemakers in the world.”
