It took over 4 years of Research & Development to develop VEJA’s first ecological running shoe: The Condor.
Blending various new technologies, the shape is inspired by the South American bird bone structure, with biomimetic design, flexibility, and lightness enough efficient for running.
Today, the Condor is 53% natural-based and recycled, which is VEJA’s first step towards the running world. Condor is the perfect balance between organic materials and running optimization.
Made in Brazil in a factory that respects workers' rights.

Light My Fire Spork Bio/ReStraw Bio
Biobased plastic composition is made fully, or in part, from plants or other biological matter depending on the properties required for the different products.
Light My Fire has chosen to use biobased plastic for our products. In using renewable organic matter we engage in a regenerative cycle that is not only sustainable but an excellent substitute to fossil fuel dependency. The plants growth cycles naturally remove CO2 from the atmosphere suggesting that a global change to biobased plastics would be equal to stopping millions of tons of CO2 emissions every year.
To meet the usage requirements of our products, Light My Fire currently use 3 specific types of biobased plastic. These contain the highest possible biomass percentage.
TERRALENE: Made from certified sugarcane and wood fibre waste from certified European wood that adds strength to the product as well as a wonderful texture and natural smell.
ECOZEN: Made from European GMO free corn. This provides strength and heat resistance.
DRYFLEX GREEN: Made from certified sugarcane in two different densities for strength and hardness

14 plastic bottles recycled to make each fleece
Odlo Active Warm Eco Baselayers
The new Warm ECO collection brings you high-level gear with minimum environmental impact. Both Performance and Active Warm Eco collections are made from recycled yarn, using PET bottles and avoiding the production of new polyester.
Odlo’s classic baselayers have been redesigned with a whole new mindset: to offer the best quality while reducing the environmental impact to a minimum. The result is a high-level gear made from 100% recycled materials. On average, to produce one Active Warm Eco baselayer we use 13 recycled 0.5-litre PET bottles.
