The People’s Movement was born from the desire to create shoes and accessories for friends that reflected our passion for clean design… and a clean environment.
We are driven to be the positive change we want to see in the world.
The People’s Movement creates eco-hip footwear and accessories that stand for reduction of single-use plastic. We pair eco-conscious materials with up-cycled plastic bags cleaned from Bali creating products that help protect our planet. We also support organizations like 5 Gyres who have systematically reduced plastics through oceanic research, collaboration and action. Join the cause. Start a MOVMT.
What is a Gyre?
The map below shows the location of the 5 major gyres. Each dot represents 44lbs of toxic plastic in a swirling garbage heap that pollutes our planet, poisons our food (fish), and destroys ocean life. 5gyres.org reports that a recent study estimates a total mass of floating plastic debris of about 268,000 tons. Based on measurements from 2 expeditions.
