KIPSTA REWARDED FOR ITS COMMITMENTS TO A CIRCULAR ECONOMY
Within the framework of developing its new eco-designed football boot, the Traxium Compressor (recycled, recyclable, made in France and with a longer lifespan than most other football boots), Kipsta received support from ADEME (French Agency for Ecological Transition) and from the Pays de la Loire region.
After a call for proposals on the circular economy, the football brand Decathlon has been awarded a grant of 219,000 Euros for its football boots made from plastic waste taken from other end-of-life products (balls, boots, etc.).
The waste is shredded and then processed to be used as the raw material for making the Traxium Compressor boots and all other products, which will also be partly recyclable. With this innovation, Decathlon and Kipsta continue to affirm their commitment to a circular economy.
Opting for a production site in France contributes to the creation of a regional industry of recycling and recovery of thermoplastic materials.
The innovative patented manufacturing process enables the brand to guarantee the Traxium compressor for 10 years.
Come back in a few months for the launch of these boots that will revolutionize the market.
The manufacturing process may be duplicated with other types of products in the future.
