Feet hurt? Look this way! Recyclable insoles for tired Vans feet.

If you, like us, rarely take off your comfortable Vans, Converse or some other equally flat sneakers, this is relevant news is for you. Scholl has launched an insole, GelActiv, with technology that comprises two gels that aim to reduce the pressure felt on your feet. The gel is made of a thermoplastic elastomer, which is a completely recyclable and possible to process in many ways (more about that here). Make it last tried on the insoles yesterday and realized that they worked for boots with a low heel as well. 

Scholl is a part of Reckitt Benckiser. Last year RB launched a purpose-led strategy to chart a course for sustainable, responsible growth, targeting a 1/3 reduction in water impact, 1/3 reduction in carbon and to have 1/3 of its net revenue coming from more sustainable products by 2020. Newsweek has ranked RB as fourth on the list of World’s Top 10 Green Companies with a Newsweek Green Score of 84.1%, and in 2015, RB was ranked “industry-best” in eight of twenty categories in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices.

This post is presented in collaboration with Scholl.
