    Default Hemp Sneakers by Simple Satire


    Earth Day is just around the corner, so I thought it would be fun to share some eco-friendly finds with all of you. I would like to start with these cute sneakers that have always been near and dear to my heart! Meet the Satire Hemp Sneakers from a company called Simple! Why do I love these sneakers so much? Could it be because they come from a company that is dedicated to making their products 100% sustainable? These sneakers were made with sustainable and environmentally materials. The exterior is hemp, while the rubber sole is made from recycled car tires. The interior is lined with organic cotton and the laces are made of recycled PET plastic. Heck, even the box (and packaging) is made of 100% post consumer paper pulp!

    I love these! I have tried to buy these shoes several times, because I love the color combo and that they are eco-friendly, but I just don't wear sneakers. BTW, they are really comfortable!!
    (They are still in my cart, lol)

    Not to sound like a total dork, but what does 100% sustainable mean...and why is that so wonderful?

    ^^^ In this case, sustainable means that they are able to produce their products without depleting natural resources, harming the environment, etc etc. They are using both recycled materials and low-impact materials (in regards to the environment). Basically, they are making their footprint as small as they possibly can. The idea is that if everyone did this, then we could meet our own needs without jeopardizing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
