Remyxx Sneakers Combines Comfort, Fashion and an Eco-Friendly Style
The World´s Only Landfill-Free Sneakers Currently Receiving Funding on Kickstarter
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) June 01, 2012
Remyxx Sneakers are set to become the first 100 percent recyclable shoes in the world. They are currently receiving funding on the popular crowd funding website Kickstarter.
The mission of Remyxx is to deliver an enjoyable sustainable sneaker and initiate improvements in recycling. The recycling symbol appears on each shoe and is a great reminder that each shoe can be “remyxx-ed” to make new products.
“I not only wanted to create a shoe that can be recycled, but I wanted to create a shoe that people would want to wear,” said Creator Gary Gagnon. “These shoes are casual, comfortable and eco-friendly.”
You may remember Gagnon and Remyxx from his appearance on ABC´s Shark Tank. Since then, he has appeared on HLN with Jane Velez Mitchell and even mentioned in Perez Hilton´s blog “Fit Perez.” He has also been covered by the Charlotte Observer, Trend Hunter, Sneaker Blog DeFy New York, among others.
Gagnon is looking to raise $39,697.00 from Kickstarter so he can purchase material, build inventory and create new designs. He is close to reaching his goal and is trending towards much more with 24 days remaining.
“I brought my sneakers to Kickstarter because I love the idea of letting the public get involved,” said Gagnon. “I want to share my dream to change the way we think about sneakers and green-living with the world.”
Digital marketing agency, Command Partners, has partnered with Remyxx to help make the Kickstarter campaign a success. Command Partners has a strong track record of helping startups and was excited for the opportunity to work with Gagnon.
“Gary is passionate about the brand and he is going to do big things to disrupt the sneaker industry,” said Amish Shah, managing partner at Command Partners. “We´re psyched to be working with such a great product, company and team and look forward to a long term partnership.”
