Better than TOMS! Why give away shoes to impoverished people when you can teach those same people a craft and employ them at a living wage? Sole Rebels is the world's only Fair Trade certified footwear company, and I am eagerly awaiting this delightful pair made from homegrown & hand loomed jute with recycled tire soles.
Sole Rebels is the world's first Fair Trade certified footware company. In Ethiopia, they teach people shoe-making and employ them at far above market wage with outstanding benefits. These cute flats are $60.00, made from organic, hand woven jute with a cotton lining, and recycled tire soles. Read more about their work here! http://www.solerebelsfootwear.co/pages/our-ethos
Women's Flip Flop Gold - Each pair contains black plugs made from a custom carbon and rubber compound that sit under a weight bearing part of our feet ensuring electrical contact between us and the earth. These plugs are designed to conduct a flow of free electrons from the earth to our bodies. This proprietary technology allows us to get grounded when we walk on grass, sand, soil - or even concrete.
