They say that big changes start from within and that is how Vegtus began. One Sunday, I came across a publication discussing the impact that humans were having on the planet. At that point, I started to think about the legacy we were leaving for our children, the facts were terrible.
What could I do to make a change? On a professional level, I have been involved in the world of fashion for many years, so I wanted to know what impact the industry was having on the environment.
The figures are shocking: the fashion industry is responsible for 10% of human carbon emissions. The production of fabrics, transport, etc. are having a huge impact on the planet. And that’s how Vegtus was created. The first sneakers made of vegan cactus leather through environmentally sustainable production. A project developed by a team of committed people who, like me, believe that things can be done differently.
Vegtus sneakers leave no footprint on the planet, as they are free of toxic chemicals, phthalates and PVC. Made from nopal leaves, they require no irrigation systems, herbicides, pesticides or additional energy during the drying process. The raw material is dried in the sun for three days, until it reaches the desired humidity levels, without using any additional energy.
This is my gesture to improve the planet and I would love you to join us by wearing the first sneakers made of vegan cactus leather. Lots more products are coming soon. Welcome to Vegtus. Welcome to the 100% sustainable community.
