Converse Renew

Converse “Renew Initiative”, a new way of reducing waste, is the company’s first step to sustainability.

To give waste a second use, Converse Renew is the company’s first product to be made of upcycled textiles, recycled cotton canvas blends and recycled PET (plastic bottles).

The first product in this lineup will be Chuck Taylor All Star and will be available in three different styles.

First to be made of 100% recycled polyester, while the second will use upcycled denim.

The third is Converse Renew Denim, made through a process that uses cotton canvas waste to create a 40% recycled cotton (with polyester) to form a new yarn.

Chuck Taylor All Star and Chuck 70s featuring Renew Canvas, are the first to be released, on July 5.
