Vivaia Eco- friendly Shoes
💖Many of you have asked me for a sustainable shoe brand.
Most shoes on the market are made conventionally, some of them carry 𝙋𝙁𝘼𝙎 like Wolverine Worldwide, maker of Hush Puppies, Keds, Chaco, Sperry, and Merrell brands that have been accused of contaminating our water. These chemicals are harming both the wildlife and humans that come in contact with them. And have you noticed the strong odor conventional shoes emit?
🙊I once had a Steven Madden pair of shoes that was way too smelly to wear! This brand has been accused of violating CA proposition 65 warning law requirements by failing to inform consumers of toxic chemicals used in their materials. You can find a lawyer’s notice of violation here.
Why keep buying toxic products from irresponsible and greedy shoe manufacturers when we can find nicer, safer, and eco-friendly shoes?
✅Here is one of my recommended shoe brands: Vivaia, sustainably made with 3D technology, with renewable material in a zero-waste process!
💚Not only are they super pretty, but they are flexible, lightweight, highly elastic, and extremely comfortable, thanks to the latex foam, typical of eco-friendly mattresses.
Latex foam is a new experience for your feet and you can wear them all day long!
💚Let's talk about the materials: 🐠 Knit upper, made from 6 ocean-found plastic bottles
𝙄𝙣𝙨𝙤𝙡𝙚: made with soft, natural latex foam
𝙊𝙪𝙩𝙨𝙤𝙡𝙚: made with carbon-free rubber, shock resistant, fungus-proof, and odor resistant
💦Did I mention they are fully machine or hand washable? You can also wear them to the beach! They will arrive to you in a 90% recycled cardboard box, without artificial colors or odors.
🌎 To help prevent these environmental impacts, the best thing to do is to recycle ♻️ or donate your used shoes, so that they do not end up in landfills.

Z Shoes Organics "Self Love" edition
🌺Many things we buy today, clothing, shoes, bags, batteries, furniture, even fish, could be derived from forced labor and exploitation. Many are not aware of this, but an estimated 45.8 million people today are slaves at their job.
Like in Amsterdam, some women are victims of human trafficking in brothels. Or in the Amazon, where indigenous are forced to destroy their rainforest. And Thailand, where kids are forced to sell themselves in fake karaoke bars.
💖 Z Shoes Organic's “Self Love” edition is determined to support empowering women. They partnered with NFS "Not For Sale,” to fight modern-day slavery.
These beautiful pink shoes are made in Portugal, with ethically sourced material, including wild Amazonian rubber.
