A New Life for Old Soles with EcoKnights

Established in 2005, EcoKnights' focuses on working with key stakeholders to drive and empower sustainable actions for a better planet. Sustainable community development is at the core of their efforts, whether through on-ground community projects, public-private partnerships, or policy advocacy. We catch up with Fadly Bakhtiar, the Programme Director at EcoKnights, to find out about some of their current projects, including their latest, Old Soles, New Life. This project hopes to create a healthy shoe waste recycling ecosystem, by collecting old shoes to be repurposed into granules that will be used to build environmentally friendly playgrounds or sports surfaces.
