"Every year, in the UK, 900,000 tonnes of textiles are thrown into landfills. Worn Again believes some things are just too good to go to waste...

Since 2003, Terra Plana have been making good-looking eco-friendly shoes, in the UK, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Romania, Morocco and Mexico - always looking for pioneering new ways of producing them. And Anti-Apathy have been finding ever more entertaining, satisfying and intriguing ways to build social and environmental enterprises.

One hot evening in Spring 2004, in a crowded nightclub, AA and TP met, fell in love and decided to make shoes together. Shoes for people who want good-looking feet, without a guilty conscience.

Anti-Apathy have always looked for new ways of working that could improve labour standards, help deal with climate change and address issues of global trade and sustainability. Worn Again is a way of trying to fit all of that work into a shoe. A beautiful, sexy, guilt-free shoe."
