If you need new shoes, check out these recycled options

There’s always time for shoe shopping. Especially when the shoes are crafted largely, or better yet, entirely, from post-consumer recycled materials. In addition, style is a necessity. The canvassy, hempy look is fine sometimes, but we really like that these featured shoes don’t necessarily conjure the smell of patchouli.

If you’re in the market for new shoes anyway, look into cool kicks from companies that strive to make environmentally responsible footwear.

Rothy’s 3D prints its adorable flats out of recycled water bottles.

Po-Zu, a British company, uses natural fibers like spider silk, pineapple leaf fibers, and cork, among other innovative materials, to create its sole-ful shoes.

Simple shoes incorporates recycled materials in all of its shoes.

The People’s Movement, in their own words, “creates eco-hip footwear and accessories that stand for reduction of single-use plastic”.

El Naturalista manufactures some super fun shoes and their eco-innovation is admirable as well.
