Embrace Nature's Footprint: ForEver and Balena Unite for Endless Stories in Footwear with Circular Soles

Embrace Nature's Footprint: ForEver and Balena Unite for Endless Stories in Footwear with Circular Soles

Introducing BioCir®Flex Footwear Soles: A collaborative venture between ForEver and Balena, these soles represent a significant breakthrough in circular footwear design.


Engineered through injection molding, these soles are fully compostable in a controlled environment and boast high performance. The key to their durability and flexibility lies in the innovative use of BioCir®flex, a robust bioplastic material developed by Balena. Mass-production scalability ensures these soles can meet the demands of the industry while maintaining their commitment to environmental responsibility.

Balena's three guiding principles for circular materials

Principle 1:

Increased biobased content

Principle 2:

Clear end-of-life

Principle 3:

Reduced carbon footprint

Following a circular approach, BioCir®Flex soles conclude their lifestyle through a biological recycling mechanism in industrial compost facilities. 


BioCir®flex soles reach their end-of-life responsibly through the post-industrial and post-consumer recycling paths, as well as through biological recycling mechanism - biodegradation - in an industrial compost facility leaving no negative impact on compost quality and environment. Balena is working with industrial compost facilities across the globe to ensure the full decomposition and biodegradation of soles made from BioCir®flex - back to the ground safely, and by that completing a fully circular business model required for a sustainable future.
