Sustainability is important in all facets of our lives, as we all work towards a greener future that's better for the planet and everyone who calls it home.
One area you might not have considered when you're thinking of ways you can reduce your personal carbon footprint is your shoes.
Sustainable shoes can help you to reduce your impact on the environment and still enjoy comfortable, fashionable footwear.
As pioneers in the sustainable footwear market, thanks to our launch of the world's first carbon-neutral sneaker collection, elliott footwear knows how important sustainable shoes are.
We've created this guide to help you understand why sustainable footwear is the future and how you can find the perfect pair for you.
What Are Sustainable Shoes?
Many footwear brands claim to offer sustainable shoes, but the term can be difficult to define. At Elliot Footwear, we believe that sustainability means offering carbon-neutral products made from recycled fabrics.
For every pair of elliott's we make, we offset 1 metric tonne of CO2 emissions, and with the help of our industry partner CHOOSE we counteract five times the emissions generated from the manufacture of a single pair of our sneakers.
How Important Are Sustainable Shoes?
Sustainable shoes are crucial to the future of the fashion market. By offering shoes that are carbon neutral, we're able to reduce our impact on the environment and give our customers access to stunning shoes that suit their style.
Fashion is one of the most wasteful and unsustainable markets in the world, and sneakers, in particular, have one of the highest carbon footprints of any item of clothing we wear.
By offering sustainable footwear, we can help to reduce the impact that sneakers have on the environment and give wearers the opportunity to find the perfect pair of shoes that are sustainable and on-trend.
Why Choose Elliott Footwear's Range Of Eco-Friendly Sneakers?
When you think of sustainable shoes, it's easy to imagine ugly sandals made of hemp or some other dull brown material.
Thankfully, eco-friendly footwear has come a long way over the years, and there are now many options for you to choose from.
Elliott Footwear is dedicated to sustainability and is a proud member of the UNFCCC climate change initiative. We were pioneers in the sustainable footwear market when we launched the world's first carbon-neutral sneaker collection in 2018, and since then, we've been working hard to share our vision with customers from across the globe.
While sustainability is our core focus, we also understand that shoes need to be stylish. That's why we've created a range of eco-friendly vegan footwear that is both stylish and sustainable.
Our sneakers are designed with classic Danish minimalism in mind, so they go with almost every outfit. We've chosen classic colours, such as white and navy blue, to complement everyone and create a range that will suit men and women.
Alongside our standalone sustainable shoes, we've also engaged in collaborations with some of the top fashion icons in the business to create unique ranges.
For example, we've worked with Jollie's, the sock experts who support homeless charities, to create a range of stylish and sustainable socks that will keep your feet warm and support good causes.
Anyone who wants to find the perfect eco-friendly sneakers that will make them look great and benefit the environment should shop our full collection here.
