kigo Working Philosophy (Avoid)
No, we don’t avoid work. We avoid typical work trappings like extraneous travel and unnecessary paper, opting instead for things like video conferencing, telecommuting and digital marketing materials. Technology is a beautiful tool for keeping our carbon footprint at bay.
kigo Packaging Philosophy (Reduce)
Most shiny new shoes come packaged in a bunch of totally unnecessary stuff. With kigo, there is minimal recycled wrapping and a slim recycled box – only what is necessary to protect your shoes.
kigo Product Philosophy (Reuse | Recycle) kigo is all about keeping the good going. That’s why each pair of kigo shoes and its packaging are crafted from a combination of recycled and post-consumer materials, as well as environmentally friendly treatments.
The uppers and lining of kigo shoes are made from CYCLEPET, an amazing fabric created by breaking down plastic jugs to create a four-way stretch textile that is strong and soft. This bluesign® certified material is treated with eco-friendly AsahiGuard E-Series water and oil repellent to keep your shoes clean and dry in virtually any condition.
In the case of the kigo drive and flit, the insoles and outsoles are also crafted from PLUSfoam™, a tough and lightweight product made from a combination of reclaimed post-consumer materials, post-manufacturing scrap and virgin material.
