Sustainability

Environmental Aspects

– Microfiber lining is from recycled plastic bottles. Thankfully shoes do not need to be washed, thus should not shed microfibers into our waterways.

– Cork oak helps to conserve soil and water while reducing greenhouse gases. Cork oak is the only tree that can have its entire bark removed causing no harm to the tree. The same tree can be harvested every 9 years and live up to 200 years. Cork oak forests are also known to host some of the most important biodiverse ecosystems in the world.

– Beech wood for the heel is from PEFC-certified German forests. PEFC works throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practice in the forest and to ensure that wood products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards.

– Soles are developed from natural rubber latex sourced from indigenous tribes of the Amazon.

– Most shoes worldwide are constructed with pig-fat glue. Sydney Brown working together with adhesive chemists worldwide developed a sustainable alternative which is used in these shoes.

– Organic cotton laces are GOTS certified. GOTS has perhaps the highest standards among sustainability certification schemes. A GOTS label means that every step of the supply chain starting from seed to final product is GOTS certified.

Ethical Aspects

– Shoes are manufactured in Portugal, where more stringent EU labour regulations stand.

– Most shoes these days are made from animal leather or synthetic leather which are both known for harming animals and wildlife directly (killing them and using their skin) and indirectly (polluting water, air and soil creatures depend on with toxins, microfibers, etc.). These shoes are crafted from an ethical alternative materials, such as the amazing cork.

– Most shoes worldwide are constructed with pig-fat glue. Sydney Brown working together with adhesive chemists worldwide developed a sustainable alternative which is used in these shoes.
