Especially we are very close to the global tipping point now. We need to walk the talk for reducing carbon emissions right away.

material

Natural fibers are sustainable materials which are easily available in nature. They have a lot of advantages like low-cost, lightweight, renewability, biodegradability, and high specific properties. The sustainability of natural fiber-based composite materials has led to an upsurge of its applications in the shoe industry in recent years. Anyone can say they use natural fibers for green products, but how can you be sure no dirty business is going on in the manufacturing processes? Here is our secret.

Nobody has the golden answer, but we can choose to learn from others which moves us all forward.

For footwear, material is often the biggest impact on the environment. Making material choices is often more important than making material selections. We have to make better material choices to achieve our aims of creating better and more sustainable products. Eco-friendly practices include incorporating recycled material from post-consumer waste, reducing the chemistry used in leather tanning , and saving water and energy by applying waterless dye processes.

certifications

Vanbestco's sustainable materials follow NPO standards with certification. Futher more, our factory joined the "Higg Index" to do self-assessment on our environmental impact. We hope the ethical decisions we make today, will lead the planet to a better tomorrow.
