LOCAL HEADS: TAOUFIK SHANDERLY

Alright so let’s do this one more time.
Sustainability is the talk of the hour as the Earth heads into the 11th hour. Our planet faces a threat more destructive than an asteroid and definitely easier to overlook: Us. Our actions over the years have put us in the hot seat (literally) and our actions alone will determine the future of our planet.

Such situations give rise to heroes; one of them being Taoufik Shanderly. When not passionately working on his dance moves, Taoufik puts his time into upcycling and recycling. Pursuing this further, he came up with the idea of Digg.it, Dubai’s very own thrift store. He reps the Converse Chuck 70 Renew Knit shoe on the same grounds he founded the store - sustainability.

The Converse Chuck 70 Renew Knit features recycled deets: 75% recycled Polyester in the upper, 76% recycled Ultralite Hybrid Ortholite sockliner and the speckled Regrind rubber. So you leave nothing but green footprints.  

He lets us in on how it all started and where the movement is headed.
