Pine Kazi

Crafting sustainable eco-friendly casual shoes from Pineapple waste


Did you know that pineapples fruits we all love to eat produces 766 million tonnes of post harvest waste annually which is either eliminated through burning or decomposition releasing 1.8 million metric tones of CO2 and methane which are harmful green house gases. It is with this understanding that we created Pine Kazi : a new and innovative social venture that uses pineapple waste to craft a range of eco-friendly products like shoes and bags which we sell to eco conscious millenials around the world.
