Earth Day Shoe Sales: Go green, save green
Happy Earth Day everyone! Today is a day of environmental awareness and there’s always changes we can make to benefit the planet, even with our shoes. Shoes generally aren’t considered highly wasteful products since we tend to wear them for long periods of time and then we might give them away for someone else to get additional use from them; however, it’s still a smart idea to opt for shoes made of recycled materials that would otherwise go to waste, organic shoes that are produced without chemical pesticides and shoes made from sustainable and/or biodegradable materials, even if it’s not every pair in our closet. In doing so, we support the companies that produce products in ways that are better for our planet and we might find that more and more companies will do the same. We can also save some green in the process and I’ve found some online shoe stores offering discounts today in celebration of Earth Day:
