For the entire month of April, we take our commitment to 1% For the Planet to the next level - donating $5 from every pair of shoes sold to one of three non-profit partners. Upon checkout, our customers have the chance to learn about each partner and decide where they want their money to go. Giving back is one of our core values, and we love being able to share that experience with our customers.

FURTHERING OUR COMMITMENT
One Less Box
Have you ever ordered something and wondered, “why do they have to send me this small box inside a much bigger box?” Well, so did we.
Just in time for Earth Month, all new styles will ship in this Ship In Own Container (SIOC) shoe box, cutting down our overall paper usage by 40%.
Our ink is made from soybean oil that’s been
mixed with other environmentally-friendly
compounds such as natural resins and waxes.
Soy-based ink is a healthier option than petro
leum based inks, which tend to contain high
amounts of VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
With foldable edges, our new box design
eliminates the need for glue adhesives, which
are derived from plastic and non-biodegradable
materials like polyurethane, EVA, and polyolefin.
100% Recycled Material
Our new box has been constructed out
of 100% post-consumer recycled paper
products, diverting paper waste from
landfills and instead, returning it to the
paper manufacturing life-cycle.
Water-activated Shipping Tape
We opted for water-activated tape over plastic
tape because it doesn’t affect the boxes
ability to be recycled/biodegradable.
