The RX management shared with us some shoes with their deal with Simple Shoes so I ended up with a free new pair! I got the Toemorrow model and I really loved it! It was comfy and it looked cool. I got curious and checked out their website and I found out that they’re a very green company using stuff like old tires for the soles and unbleached hemp for the bodies. And they claim that their shoes are biodegradable. As in, if you bury it, it will break down completely. I was really impressed because not only do they look great, but they’re earth-friendly as well! I’m not getting paid to write this, in case it’s starting to sound like a paid ad, but I really wish there were more companies that would take this route to being eco-friendly. I feel the same way about this company as I did when we test drove the Prius. And whenever I find a product or company with whom I share the same goals, then I do whatever little I can to support it. Here, watch two of their videos. There are more on Youtube:
And green Hollywood took notice. A lot of the earth-conscious stars have taken notice and have patronized this brand. Check out these photos courtesy of simpleshoes.multiply.com:
And even Bella Swan
So I really put my support behind companies like these who make being eco-friendly cool at the same time. It’s true, sometimes, the earth friendly products are fuglier than the less eco-friendly counterparts, so it makes supporting them less easy. But I honestly love my free pair so much that I’m seriously buying a new pair soon. I’ve got my eye on a couple of models already. Check out their products and make up your own mind.
