We care about our home—this fragile planet—and believe that the path to wellness includes making the earth a healthier place for everyone.
QUALITY SHOES THAT FIT AND FEEL GOOD
We believe shoes should be comfortable and should offer support from the ground-up. Our shoes are made thoughtfully with fit features throughout and state-of-the-art underfoot comfort.
BETTER SHOEMAKING METHODS
We focus on better shoemaking methods—including the use of water-based non-toxic glues, natural materials such as rice husk and rubber, recycled materials such as PET bottles, polyester and outsole materials, as well as LWG gold rated leathers – and, of course, responsible packaging.
TREES FOR THE FUTURE PARTNERSHIP
Since 2015, Earth has partnered with Trees For The Future to plant over 1.8 million trees.
OUR COMMITMENT TO 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.
We use only Leather Working Group (also known as LWG) gold rated leather for sustainability.
LWG certification is awarded to tanneries that demonstrate environmental best practices and performance in all areas of leather production, from chemical and water management to energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, waste management and hide traceability.
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.
Through our ongoing partnership with Trees for the Future—an award-winning, global, tree-planting organization—we’re planting trees in developing countries across Africa. The trees we plant provide families with more than just food—they provide income, empowerment, unity, leadership, education and even save lives.
By helping us plant trees, you’re giving families the ability to transition from damaging farming techniques to a Forest Garden system that sustains and empowers them—and changes their lives forever.
