EMPOWERING SUSTAINABLE CHOICES

 

By embracing personal style over status-quo trends, we empower conscious consumers to buy quality over quantity (the only true answer to sustainability). We imbue every stage of our sneaker-making process with this eco-conscious spirit, from designing to curating materials responsibly, to shipping and giving back to the environment. Being better for the planet is our first priority.

First thing’s first – we source our materials responsibly. Next we create a safe & ethics-driven environment in our factories, we evolve our processes to be greener than they were yesterday, we give back to like-minded organizations and make plans for the next generation of greener products & practices.

From designing to curating materials responsibly, to shipping and giving back to the environment, our priority is the planet.

Crafting Sneakers with a Green Conscience

Crafting Sneakers with a Green Conscience

We curate premium raw materials in order to yield a smaller footprint.

Crafting Sneakers with a Green Conscience

We curate premium raw materials in order to yield a smaller footprint.

Bamboo

We chose bamboo for its rapid self-regeneration – it’s cut from the stalk and grows back – leaving tree & soil intact. (It’s actually the fastest growing plant in the world and is a carbon negative material!) Bamboo is also a natural antibacterial, produces minimal waste and guarantees no harmful chemicals are used. Our bamboo is certified by Forest Stewardship Council, OEKO-TEX & the Organic Crop Improvement Association.

Rubber

Our perfectly-weighted natural rubber is gathered from the hevea brasiliensis tree through ethical “tapping” (removing a milky sap from its bark). So, no trees are ever harmed in the production of our sneakers!

Organic Cotton

Since February 2020, we’ve been replacing our BCI canvas with organic GOTS-certified cotton. Basically, organic farming keeps workers, soil and water safe from toxic pesticides. We are committed to choosing the pro-earth option always. Our organic cotton is certified by Global Organic Textile Standard.

Sugarcane

Our sugarcane is sourced from Brazil and relies on rainwater to thrive (not traditional irrigation). It’s a fully-renewable, bio-based resource that grows quickly and naturally removes carbon from the atmosphere. Our sugarcane is certified by I’M GREEN.

Cork

Cork is a natural and sustainable material. To procure it, it is carefully scraped from the cork tree so that the tree remains intact and can form new bark. Cork ensures a healthy environment and all-day comfort for your feet.

Mamona Oil

Mamona is a plant-based and organic alternative to petroleum. We chose this natural oil in order to significantly decrease our use of virgin plastics and increase the natural content of our products, thus delivering a much greener foam.

Recycled PET

We’ve made it our mission to significantly reduce our use of virgin plastics. The vast majority of plastics used in our upper, laces, labels and threads are derived from recycled plastic bottles. Recycling, reducing and repurposing is the only responsible way forward. Our recycled PET is certified by Global Recycled Standard.

Leather & Suede

Our leather & suede is responsibly sourced from Argentina, Thailand, Brazil, and China. None of our premium materials are sourced from the Amazon or any area deforested for cattle-farming purposes. 100% of the water used to produce our leather and suede is recycled and reused. Alternative energy sources such as solar panels are used to ensure a smaller footprint. Our leather and suede is certified by Leather Working Group.

Recycled & Recyclable Packaging Paper

In addition to utilizing single-box packaging (our shoe box doubles as our shipping box), we also use 100% recycled & recyclable paper to cushion your new kicks on their journey to your front door. Oh, and our new shoe filler (to keep your sneaks from getting squashed during transit) is biodegradable as well. Our recycled & recyclable paper is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

Dye Chemicals

We wanted to ensure that no hazardous chemicals would be used in our manufacturing process (to make things as safe as possible for our workers). So, we chose Bluesign-certified chemicals to dye our materials. Working with Bluesign also helps our factory to function more efficiently, reduces our water usage and helps with pollution control.

We are committed to increasing our vegan products to over 50% by 2021.

Warehouse Best Practices

Warehouse Best Practices

Our warehouse meets the highest environmental standards. Our sneakers are kept in a solar-powered, air-conditioned facility for quality protection. We also save energy in our warehouse through using LED lighting and a cooling tower to prevent and monitor over-consumption. Our warehouse building is ISO14001:2015 Certified (Environmental Standards) and LEED Gold Certified as well.

Our warehouse building is ISO14001:2015 Certified (Environmental Standards) and LEED Gold Certified as well.

 

Dual-Purpose, Single-Box Packaging

We’ve gone minimalist. Now our sneakers are delivered to your door in one box, which acts as both packaging and your shoe box – the box is also designed to be used for any returns as well! (All made with recycled & recyclable paper & cardboard.)

Carbon-Neutral Shipping

For our express shipping, we have a program called DHL Go Green, in which shipment emissions are neutralized through nine diverse reforestation programs around the world. We also capture carbon through our Reforestation Program in the Brazilian rainforest.

Happy Returns

Our returns are managed through our partner, Happy Returns. We minimize carbon emissions by processing orders in bulk. After our warehouse receives your return, any damaged cartons are recycled & repurposed through our partner paper mill.

Giving Back

Giving Back

At the end of the day, we are most proud of our direct contributions to improving the environment and the lives of others.

At the end of the day, we are most proud of our direct contributions to improving the environment and the lives of others.

Our mission to disrupt the wasteful practices inherent in fashion goes beyond reinventing the sneaker game. We steadfastly look for new ways to give back to people and the planet.

In June 2020, we launched our very own Reforestation Program in the Brazilian rainforest where, sadly, only 20% of the forest remains.

Replanting the forest floor is our goal. We take it one tree at a time, well, actually it’s two trees at a time:

 

For every pair of sneakers we sell, we plant a pair of trees in the Brazilian rainforest.

 

Our reforestation effort involves planting trees of varying species – including Jacaranda, Pau-Brasil, Peroba, Caroba, and the Murici-da-Mata – to mimic the Brazilian rainforest’s natural diversity.

These new trees naturally protect 60% of Brazil’s endangered species of animals and plants.

We are very proud of the network that we have created, relying on the efforts and advisory of CEPAN (Centro de Pesquisas Ambientais do Nordeste), One Tree Planted initiative and the Instituto Socioambiental (ISA).

We listen to our community and try out methods to improve our environmental projects further. For example, we have expanded our tree planting to email signups and brand campaigns; we turned Black Friday – Green, and planted almost 20,000 trees over a single weekend.

Some exciting improvements are in the works! Coming very soon (in early 2021), we will be kicking off an extraordinary new project in the Amazon. Not only will we be replanting the forest, we will also be involving local communities in a meaningful way (e.g., our native indigenous people in Brazil, the guardians of the forest).

As of late September 2020, four months since we launched, approximately 200,000 trees will be planted through our Reforestation Program.

Stay tuned! We’re just getting started =)

We donate our gently-worn and returned sneakers (including sample styles) to Soles4Souls – a 301c nonprofit organization that provides footwear to underserved communities. Through our micro-enterprise program we also send shoes and clothing to entrepreneurs in developing countries which gives them the ability to start small businesses and break free from the cycle of poverty.

We partnered with other like minded eco-friendly brands (Brick, CarbonLite Recycling, FindTap, Bumble & Unalome) to multiply our numbers & clean up our home-away-from-home, Venice Beach last summer 2019. We came together to serve the local community, share ideas on sustainability and to get some sun. We look forward to regular beach cleanups! Stay tuned, we may be in a coastal city near you soon …
