Bodyglove partners with Plus Foam for eco-footwear

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 30 July, 2013 : - - Body Glove’s footwear division announces its partnership with Plus Foam Compound Technologies for their 2014 Collection. Looking to eliminate an extraordinary amount of post-manufacturing waste that is typically associated with the footwear manufacturing process, Body Glove Footwear, CEO John Chenciner was exploring ways to manufacture with a Zero Carbon Footprint.

While looking at carbon offset programs it became more important to explore responsible manufacturing programs that were better for the environment and still produced high quality performance based products. Body Glove’s collaboration with Plus Foam will be introduced at this summer’s Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Body Glove will release the Eco Zero Line with two styles, Eco Zero Curve and Flex. Key features on the sandal are an Ultra Comfort Non-Microbial footbed with a Hydrophobic Flex outsole. Both will be made of performance based Plus foam and will be 100% recyclable.

Body Glove’s Eco Zero Line will be available at major sporting goods stores along with independent retailers nationwide and will focus on in-store education encouraging consumers to recycle by offering discount programs on future purchases for those who recycle through PLUS Foam’s global reclaim facilities.

“It is important to not only engage in more environmental manufacturing practices but also to educate the consumers and promote more environmentally friendly purchasing practices” stated Body Glove Footwear’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Eli McGinty.
