Icebug + fsc® sourcing collaboration
Sustainably sourced natural rubber, no deforestation guaranteed.
PRIMARY INNOVATION FEATURES
In order to realize this supply chain Icebug reached out to other brands to create higher demand, thus making it possible to the missing link – the rubber processor – to FSC certify. What Icebug have found, and what they are trying to scale by reaching out to other brands will hopefully be a changemaker for the entire industry. Should brands decide to switch from fossil rubber to sustainably sourced natural rubber, the climate impact from soles could decrease by 50%.
