Milly J was visited in the shop and studio by University of East Anglia, International Development students. As part of their thesis, they research the changing social perspectives towards environmental issues, including recycling and landfill. How we start to do things in different ways, in which to help the implications. Is this a changing model in that we are more aware of what happens to our waste and is this a permanent change?


Here at Milly J Shoes, I am pushing the move for the public to bring in their old shoes in order to help reduce the footwear footprint. They in turn have their shoes revitalised and turned into a new design. Most of the UK's landfill is tranferred to China or Poland and this simply isn't economically sustainable! The footwear industry is one of the biggest culprits for poor landfill management.

We always have a great time exhibiting among various other fabulous bridal suppliers at the official, Bride Magazine Wedding Show. This is held twice a year at the Norfolk Showground with it being the largest wedding show in the area. Our themes were peacock blues and sea greens. The gorgeous flower girl dress was made by my partner's sister, Tara Martin - Miluca.

I was invited by news anchor, Susie Fowler-watt to be interviewed on the BBC Look East news couch this week! This was in light to my new campaign - Footwear Footprint..


They filmed in the shop and then interviewed me for the evening news. I’m on the campaign to reduce the landfill implications within the footwear industry with 330 million pairs in the uk alone manufactured a year with most of these ending up in landfill. One pair takes 50 years to decompose with gases and toxins released into our atmosphere due to the manmade materials in use. The way forward is upcyling. Transforming the pairs you don’t wear or old shoes into new designs. Putting off the landfill destiny for another few years! Fast fashion is an issue.
