Walking the Talk: Why Sustainable Shoes Matter
by David Teitelbaum on Apr 18, 2023
Eco-friendly shoes are the perfect way to feel connected with your footwear while also being kind to the planet.
So, why exactly do sustainable shoes matter? Well, for starters, traditional shoe manufacturing can be incredibly harmful to the environment. Leather production alone contributes to deforestation, water pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. And that's not to mention the waste generated from all those old, worn-out shoes that end up in landfills.
But eco-friendly shoes offer a solution to these problems. They're made from recyclable and sustainable materials, which means they have a lower carbon footprint and are less damaging to the planet. Plus, sustainable fashion is becoming more popular, which means you can find stylish options without sacrificing comfort.
One brand that's leading the way in sustainable footwear is ROSE IN GOOD FAITH. Their Plastic Soul shoe is made from discarded unused adult toys - yes, you read that right! By repurposing these materials, they're diverting waste from landfills and creating something new and unique.
But don't let the unconventional materials fool you - these shoes are also incredibly comfortable. The recycled foam insoles and rubber outsoles make for a cushioned and supportive fit that will keep you comfortable all day long.
So, next time you're in the market for some new shoes, consider choosing a sustainable option.
