There is an Afterlife.
What becomes of your sneakers?
Our goal

Our goal is to offer total sustainability throughout the product lifecycle, from design and production through end-of-life. By sourcing renewable materials and recycling them, we can target an environmental impact of zero or better.

Recycling program

Afterlife is the Roscomar recycling program. We offer free end-of-life returns which means that we can take your old Roscomars and reincarnate them into something new so they don't end up in landfill or incineration, which is the fate of 85%+ of shoes globally.

Global leaders

We work with global leaders in textile and footwear recycling. We disassemble the components of each sneaker and recycle that which can be recycled, such as rubber. Natural materials such as leather, suede and cotton, are composted or reprocessed to make new materials.
