In our Cycle Technologies December newsletter, we’re highlighting the innovative thinking of a social impact company that is giving children sustainable shoes they can wear for a long, long time. Check it out!
Problem: 300 million children do not have shoes and many more children don’t have shoes that fit. Children’s feet grow so quickly, it can be hard in a low resource setting to keep up. Lack of proper footwear increases the risk of diseases and parasites entering in the body, especially in areas where unsafe, unsanitary conditions are present.
Solution: The Shoe That Grows helps address this problem with sustainable and solid footwear that expands and adjusts as children’s feet grow. It can grow 5 sizes and lasts for years!
