AllBirds Wool Loungers
The fashion industry has a long way to go before it hits sustainability. Actually, it’s about as far away from sustainability as you can get—as one of the world’s top environmental polluters, energy consumers, and waste producers, with 92 million tons of solid waste dumped into landfills each year. Luckily there are some fashion brands looking to do things differently, committed to being better. AllBirds is one such company, with its focus on designing high-quality, versatile products that reflect and respect nature. Their popular Wool Loungers provide a light and breathable footwear option that’s both cozy and causal, but can also be dressed up when needed. Made of superfine natural merino wool, each pair is temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking, soft and itch-free, making the Lounger ideal for any weather condition—warm and sunny to cold and breezy. And with slip-on-and-off versatility and all around comfort, the Wool Loungers are perfect for either a long stroll outside or just to putter around the house. AllBirds has also partnered with Soles4Souls to donate slightly worn returned shoes that can’t be resold. Their all-in-one shipping + shoebox uses 40% less material and is made of 95% recycled cardboard. And they’ve committed to going completely carbon neutral in 2019. AllBirds, a step above in sustainability.
