OrthoLite Introduces Cirql Midsole Foam Solution

OrthoLite, an industry leader for 25 years of branded, high-performance, comfort footwear solutions, today unveils its first-ever midsole foam innovation to elevate sustainability in the footwear industry: Cirql.

OrthoLite Cirql is the solution needed to achieve circularity within the footwear industry and is an EVA plastics-free, recyclable, biodegradable and industrially compostable foam. Powered by plants, Cirql offers a pure foam alternative to conventional plastics and is made from responsibly sourced plants and biodegradable materials.

The GMO-free, plant-based material used in Cirql is free from any “forever chemicals” and is created through a zero-waste, chemical-free foaming process. The patented ground-breaking process ensures sustainability in a midsole that delivers on OrthoLite’s standards of performance, comfort and sustainability.

Containing no forever-chemicals or persistent microplastics, at the end of its useful life cycle, Cirql can be composted, making it a soil-to-soil solution for footwear foam. Cirql biodegrades back into nutrient-rich, soil compost. Additionally, Cirql foam can be depolymerized and recycled for reuse.

Patented worldwide and with a commitment to full transparency and third-party validation,

Cirql has undergone extensive third-party testing and analysis to include a complete Life Cycle IVL Assessment and is Certified Industrial Compostable – (Din Certco ), REACH-certified (EU) and USDA Certified Bio Preferred®, RSL compliant (Intertek), certified GMO-free, certified Vegan and Hypoallergenic.

Cirql’s testing and certifications confirm the importance of measuring and validating the full environmental impact of the raw materials, finished product, production and manufacturing process, transportation and distribution.

OrthoLite invites its partners to join it on this journey. For more information, visit www.ortholitecirql.com.
