What makes Manganese 2 Black Leather Boots Responsible?

Raw Materials2

Crafted with biodegradable lining: metal-free and without chrome, the leather becomes completely biodegradable. We call it 'bio leather'.

Raw Materials

Components crafted from recycled plastic!

Raw Materials

Certified by the Global Recycling Standard (GRS), we've introduced recycled plastic bottles into our Bared range. Otherwise known as, rPET, it is manufactured by shredding used bottles into small flakes, the flakes are melted into pellets, and stretched into a thread.

How To Dispose of Manganese 2 Black Leather Boots

  • Return to Collection Point

    Shoe Recycling

    In partnership with Melbourne-based company, Save Our Soles, we transform pre-loved shoes into rubber mats for gym and playground flooring. Drop off your old shoes (Bared or not!) at any one of our stores, alternatively, post them to our warehouse.
  • Worm food

    Compostable Satchels

    Our postage bags are compostable. Made from sustainable plants and non-toxic resin, these satchels will decompose when exposed to enough moisture along with anything inside them.
  • General Recycle

    Shoe Boxes

    All our shoeboxes double as bags! Crafted from FSC-certified recycled materials, they're perfect for storage (Marie Kondo style) and keeping your shoes in as-new condition.
  • Reuse

    Hemp Bags

    Every shoe is individually packed in their own reusable drawstring bag. Crafted from a hemp blend, an all-natural, biodegradable fibre that uses 50% less water to produce than cotton, and creates 200-250% more fibre in the same volume of land.
  • Landfill compostable

    Eco Tape

    We're dedicated to reducing our plastic footprint, and strictly use landfill-biodegradable packing tape across the business.
  • Home compostable
