Renovare is a small business company that has taken an important role in helping the environment and saving the planet by recycling all kinds of PET plastic and transforming them into modern, innovative and creative shoes. This company was founded in 2009 by Jorge Castro and his associate and best friend, Mario Lopez, when they were only 19 years old. The idea of launching an ecological shoe came to Jorge’s mind during a conversation he was having with Mario in one of the many weekends they sat together to have a few beers. What started as a project inspired in his desire to give something back to the planet, has developed into a business that currently recycles enough PET plastics to fill up 2 Azteca Stadiums.
