Melissa Plastic Dreams realize how important it is to recycle and came up with an awesome way of helping the world. This Brazillian designer designed plastic shoes that are made out of materials which are totally bio-degradable. They have conveniently trademarked a flexible thermo-malleable plastic that eliminates that hot and clammy feeling.
All Melissa’s shoes are made of sustainable, natural rubber. The shoes would eventually mold to your feet after just a few wears. Being rubber, the shoes are also totally waterproof and you guessed it right, it can be cleaned by just washing it with water and soap.
The shoes also have a fun and fruity scent to them as well! A few years ago, to add to the melissa experience, the decision was made to infuse all melissa shoes with a sweet bubblegum smell. The smell will not last forever – but it does remain for quite a few months and is one of the most talked about features of melissa.
If you thought that eco-friendly footwear was primarily for fun loving hippies, think again! Melissa shoes invite us to walk off our misconceptions surrounding environmentally friendly products and leave our ignorance behind, in style naturally. Each and every one of us can help save the environment by choosing Melissa's ecological designs and reducing our carbon footprints, and in doing so we'll be following in the green-steps of Jessica Biel, Katy Perry, Katie Holmes, Beth Ditto and Pamela Anderson.
