MoEa is a Paris-based company that represents the new generation of sneakers. MoEa pioneered the use organic materials from fruits and plants to create low-carbon and recyclable vegan sneakers made from fruits and plants.
For ages it has been an unwritten law that surable plus functional footwear had to be made of leather. In the case of sports shoes, this was often combined with mesh or other textile materials. Thanks to MoEa, that is now a thing of the past. Nowadays, science makes it possible to replace leather with innovative materials made from fruits and plants without compromising on quality.
MoEa currently uses these five very exciting materials:
This gives conscious and sustainable-minded people the opportunity to go vegan from head to toe. Not only has MoEa banned animal-based materials from all of its sneaker designs and replaced them with innovative plant-based materials, but since 2022, MoEa has also been a proudly PETA-certified vegan company. Choosing MoEa is doing your part for a kinder, science-based future without animal skin.
MoEa is committed to making sneakers that are vegan, low carbon, and also locally made. To do this, MoEa uses only vegan and clean materials sourced from Europe; to complete the cycle, MoEa also works with certified factories in Portugal and rely on the latest innovations in the organic materials industry.
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) studies commissioned by MoEa show that the bio-materials used in the vegan sneakers emit on average 89% less carbon than conventional leather. For example, the MoEa GEN1 emits 4 kg of CO2, which is only approximately one-fifth of a conventional sneaker.
MoEa sneakers not only look good, their kicks also do good for the environment. Another reason is that MoEa donates 1% of sales to the fight against deforestation. Thus, MoEa contributes to the WWF’s reforestation programs. Since 2021, MoEa has been a proud member of the WWF Start-Up Club – to which only three hand-picked brands are admitted each year. That such an institution recognizes the French company’s positive impact on the environment and wildlife is a wonderful tribute to MoEa’s quest for a better world.
