Our mission has always been turning plastic into something extraordinary. We believe extraordinary is doing everything that we already did, but in an even better way.
Melissa’s plastic concept is more than raw material innovation. It is also the search for sustainability in all levels of our production. We are connected with the best international models, to avoid waste, optimise resources and recycle products.
All of our products are crafted from a specially formulated PVC Melflex© which is 100% recyclable. Created to be durable and renewable, Melissa products have a longer lifespan as the same pair can be melted and remoulded into new products.
After all, extraordinary is making something new from something old.
Melissa shoe boxes are made from reliable and environmentally friendly sources, as certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC).
Flip your shoeboxes over for the FSC stamp.
