Introducing ALDO CleanStep™ Technology

We care about the footprint we leave - which is why, as a part of our commitment to the planet, we have innovated a new, exclusive technology to create sustainable soles that helps clean and filter polluted water.
ALDO CleanStep™. Talk about cleaning up nice.

But how does it work? Let us break it down:

  • Step 1: Harvesting Algae Biomass

    When harvested, water containing algae is filtered and safely released back into the environment, providing clean water for fish and other wildlife.

  • Step 2: Drying the Algae Flakes

    Once the algae biomass has been harvested, it is sundried, creating a firm material known as “dried algae flakes.”

  • Step 3: Grinding the Algae Powder

    When dry, the algae flakes are ground into a fine powder.

  • Step 4: Creating CleanStep™

    The algae powder is mixed with a substance called Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR), which is used to create a sustainable rubber-like material (go figure).

Et voila! Since 2018, we’ve been proud to be certified climate neutral. TToday, we’re pushing a little bit further with our ALDO Love Planet collection of sustainable shoes and accessories.
