Footwear to Feel Good About

July 02, 2016

We’ve added some kickin’ new shoe styles from Inkkas for the summer that you should check out. Besides the comfort of the shoes themselves, this is footwear you’ll feel good about.

In connection with giving partner Trees for the Future’s 14 projects underway in five countries in Sub Saharan Africa, for every pair of Inkkas sold, one tree is planted. Trees for the Future rehabilitates dilapidated farmland and deforested areas where food and farming resources are scarcest. Planting trees enables local subsistence farmers to implement sustainable farming practices, prevent deforestation, and provide greater income potential and food security for their families and the communities they live in. To date, Inkkas has helped to plant 108,972 trees.

No only are Inkkas a great choice for the environment, it’s important that the manufacturing process respects workers’ rights. Inkkas ensures workers in their facilities are paid fairly for their time, from workers in the Mexico plant who are paid double the national minimum wage to the European plant’s safe work conditions and labor standards regulated by the European Union.

Feel good about what you put on your feet — handmade shoes using textiles from around the world by Inkkas!
