The mahabis recycling scheme is a partnership with environmental firm First Mile to prevent pre-loved mahabis from going into landfills.
This thoughtful company give your mahabis a second life by processing, shredding and transforming them into playground surfacing, roads, boxing bag inners, and a whole lot more.
We’ll reward you, as well as the environment for your time - not only will you be reducing landfill waste, you will get a 15% off voucher to go towards your next pair of mahabis.
Some frequently asked questions:
- What happens to my slippers when they are recycled?
Our warehouse in Swindon will store your pre-loved slippers until they have enough for one big (and economical) shipment to First Mile in Cheshire, our recycling partner. First Mile then give your mahabis a second life by processing, shredding and transforming them into playground surfacing, roads, boxing bag inners, and a whole lot more.
- What condition can my mahabis be in when I return them?
First Mile will find a new life for your mahabis regardless of their condition — pre-loved, really loved, and really really loved. Any condition is fine.
- Can I recycle the detachable-soled mahabis?
Yes, absolutely. We will recycle any model of mahabis.
- What if I can only find one of my mahabis?
that’s not a problem – just send the one. (although you won’t get another voucher if you end up returning the missing slipper)
- Can I send back other shoes with my mahabis?
Unfortunately, we can only recycle mahabis, but check the website of any other shoes you with to recycle as they may have their own recycling scheme! It's a trend we're hoping will catch on industry-wide.
