A point of pride in the Stella McCartney collection: Loop sneakers. Made of recycled materials, which are produced using 50% less energy, the sneakers feature interlocking clips and threads (versus glue), allowing them to be easily taken apart for recycling at the end of their use. The result is a product that “closes the loop” on the production cycle, conserving the planet’s natural resources and utilizing existing materials.
Since her brand’s inception in 2001, Stella McCartney has kept the environment top of mind, eschewing the use of animal leather, fur, or feathers in any designs. Through the years, the brand has has maintained its focus on sustainability and advanced its environmentally friendly practices through the use of innovative materials.
