This is Modern Wellness Fashion. We’re going beyond just comfort, and not settling for just style. In every shoe design, we’re giving you vitality in every step, expressing your best self in every look. We source sustainability in materials, and social fairness in our partnerships. Look good, feel good, do good. Simple. It’s a wonderful journey that we promise to take with you everyday.
We care about our home—this fragile planet—and believe that the path to wellness includes making the earth a healthier place for everyone. Since 2015, Earth has partnered with Trees For The Future to plant over 1.7 million trees.
We also focus on better shoemaking methods—including the use of water-based non-toxic glues, vegetable tanned leathers, and glue-free shoeboxes. Day after day, Earth is doing good and being easier on the planet. It’s our promise to continue this effort into the future—becoming a more sustainable company with each passing year.
We use only non-toxic, water-based adhesives in our footwear, which is much safer for the air, the water – and the people who work in footwear manufacturing, than traditional toxic solvent and oil based alternatives. Many other glues such as Solvents, Radiation cured glues and Hot Melts have been shown to be extremely dangerous to people’s health. Water-based glues are a more responsible choice.
Many of our leather products are tanned using a vegetable-tanning process. Unlike other tanning processes, vegetable-tanning does not contain harmful chemicals. It uses the tannic acids naturally found in plants such as tree barks, leaves and some fruits. The production time using vegetable-tanned leathers can be lengthier but its' health benefits for those in and around the tanneries as well as the economic benefits for the local culture are a more responsible choice, and one that Earth beliefs strongly about.
All of our shoeboxes are glue-free. We've standardized the production of our shoeboxes so that they never contain glues or staples. We also use a hinge style lid, which reduces the amount of cardboard needed to make each box. This may seem small, but when thousands and thousands of boxes are being made each year, every inch adds up. Our boxes are also made from recyclable materials – so please be sure you're putting unwanted boxes in your recycling bin instead of the trash.
Earth Brands cares about our home, our planet. Here at Earth, we believe that following a path to wellness includes making our Earth a healthier place for us all. Every year, 32.1 million trees are destroyed both intentionally and by natural causes. We need trees to clean our soil, clean our air and protect us from the elements. Earth Brands has partnered with a non-profit restoration organization to plant more trees, and help to keep our planet happy and healthy. Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree on Earth.
