In the critical period of emission reduction in the global fashion industry, as the second largest polluting industry after the petrochemical industry, green production in the fashion industry is urgent. The shoemaking industry has always been an area hardest hit by environmental pollution. In recent years, in order to solve the environmental pollution problems caused by the industry, footwear brands at home and abroad have been actively exploring green development models.
