That's right, we're going crowdfunding. We will be debuting our sustainable sneaker selection on 12.07.23 right after the aftermath and ecstasy of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
Utilising waste streams such as used motorsport race tyres, outdated race suits, team clothing and manufacturing offcuts, teams can reduce their carbon footprint, keep waste material out of landfill, negate the cost of waste disposal and convert their rubbish into new hot kicks for their fans.
We offer motorsport and sneaker fans a unique opportunity to show their support and get closer to the race action than ever before by wearing premium footwear created from materials used by and produced for their favourite teams.
Compound takes motorsport industry waste and converts it into unique, recycled, fashionable footwear.
Over 23 billion shoes are produced worldwide each year, which contributes to roughly one-fifth of the fashion industry’s carbon emissions. Sneakers alone generate 313 million metric tons of carbon dioxide every year, equivalent to the annual emissions of 66 million cars.
Several leading motorsport clothing manufacturers estimate that 15%-25% of racesuit material is wasted as offcuts, which currently ends up in landfill.
Additionally, motorsport teams are entering a fashion industry that produces 100bn garments each year, 350,000 tonnes of which is worn just a few times before ending up into landfill, estimated to be worth £3 billion.
Founders Club is a limited edition line of sustainable motorsport-inspired clothing exclusively designed for the first supporters of Compound. This line features unique items made from recycled and upcycled materials, such as manufacturing offcuts that would have otherwise ended up in landfill or the incinerator.
By joining the Founders Club, you not only get access to exclusive and limited-edition clothing, but also become part of our mission to reduce waste in the fashion and motorsport industry.
To our fellow founders, welcome to the club.
