Unsurprisingly, the sustainability trend has spread into the shoe industry, and industry experts predict that sustainable footwear alternatives will take a reasonable share in the near future. What makes footwear sustainable is, of course, the materials used in the construction of the shoe. Natural rubber, cork, bamboo, and organic cotton are the most known sustainable raw materials for footwear making. On the other hand, plant-based vegan leather sources from mushrooms, apples, and even cacti are also on the rise. Besides the material used, how those materials are produced, or crops are grown, harvested, processed, and transported add to the products’ sustainability. Even if it sounds like a lot to track, there are various certifications and labels for green suppliers to distinguish themselves in the market. Here you can find certified sustainable footwear suppliers and learn more about the future of footwear and the required certifications.
