“We are excited that PLUSfoam® is part of the Sazzi® brand launch,” said Mike Carr, Associate General Manager of PLUS Compound Technologies®. “PLUSfoam® is a perfect complement to the revolutionary Sazzi® product offering and its compelling story. With an aggressive, non-marking outsole, minimalist design and individual toe articulation, these sandals are excellent examples of how PLUSfoam® can be used in the most advanced manufacturing processes.”
Through the use of PLUSfoam®, Sazzi® is virtually eliminating the post-manufacturing waste that is typically associated with footwear production. “By using PLUSfoam® we are projecting to reduce approximately 3,400 pounds of scrap from landfills and incinerators, during the first year of the Sazzi® production,” said Carr. “Brands like Sazzi®, that choose PLUSfoam®, are truly making a positive impact on the environment.”
Also known as “Toe Motion™ Footwear”, Sazzi® performance sandals offer superior lateral stability with a patent-pending four toe-post system and better traction through separated toe platforms. “We wanted to manufacture a quality, sustainable product. Establishing a connection with PLUSfoam® was essential. We could not be happier with the product that we have created with PLUSfoam® technology,” says Brian Walton, General Manager at Sazzi®, “the performance benefits of PLUSfoam®, namely the non-microbial feature, along with non-marking outsoles and superior traction on wet or dry surfaces, has given us a phenomenal product.”
Like all products manufactured with PLUSfoam®, Sazzi® sandals can be recycled at one of the PLUS Compound Technologies® reclaim facilities that are currently located in the US and Asia. Consumers can take advantage of this service by logging onto www.PLUSfoam.com/recycle. “Sazzi® sandals are extremely durable and I don’t expect we’ll see any sent back for some time,” said Carr, “with that said, if recycled PLUSfoam® products could talk, I’m sure the Sazzi® Digit and Decimal would have some of the most interesting stories to tell. I personally cannot wait to get a pair”.
