This Earth Day, conscious consumerism is a topic hot on everyone’s lips, and we’re here to back it up! Being mindful of the clothes we buy and the impact their manufacturing process has on the environment is one way we can take a step closer to fulfilling both our individual and societal sustainability goals. To help you along the way, we’ve rounded up 3 sustainable footwear brands that’ll help you keep your closet and the environment clean while also making you look great!
ESSĒN THE LABEL
Elevated essentials are what sustainable footwear brand ESSĒN create and they do it to perfection! Their products are designed by women, for women, and you can find everything from the perfect daytime ballet flat to an elegant night-time block heel in champagne in their line-up. Their collection is effortlessly chic, made all the more alluring by the sustainability ethos they carry, which includes solar-powered factories, LWG certified leathers and fair wages and working conditions.
Superga Organic Collection
We all love a good sneaker, and what's better than a recognisable Superga? Their canvas shoes are a staple for many, but we're big fans of their Organic Collection in particular. The shoes in the collection are made of 60% organic cotton and 40% natural hemp, with the other materials sourced organically from rubber tree forests and natural cork. So, whether you'll be wearing your pair to a festival, picnic in the park, or simply down the road to the shops, you'll know for certain that you're walking in shoes that were made from the earth without harming it.
The Nude Label
Who doesn't love a clog? We're definitely fans of these platform wooden heels by The Nude Label, who are the go-to sustainable footwear brand for unique sandals. Their products are not only made from sustainable materials (bio-vegan leather) that are responsibly sourced, but each sale also gives back to the planet through a donation to a project that helps reforest the Amazon rainforest. Good shoes with a good heart is a winning combo in our books.
