We produce 100 pairs of sustainable shoes

Our shoes will be named after the areas we clean

Having the opportunity to revisit and reconnect with my roots in the Philippines, has been such an amazing experience. One of the things that deeply disturbs me is watching my close friends that I left behind live in a plastic polluted world. Plastic persists for more than centuries and due to lack of funding and poor waste management, the problem will continue to eradicate the country.

We are developing a sustainable approach to give rice bags, and other plastic found objects, another life. Buhay will be developing sustainable shoes from upcycled materials, with a mission to reduce plastic waste within the streets and beaches.  

I welcome you, to ‘Walk with Us’.
