Shoes are one of the most essential items in everyone’s wardrobe. But did you know that your footwear choices can have a major impact on the environment?
With the alarming rate at which resources are being depleted and pollution plaguing our cities, it is important for us to be conscious about what we put on our feet every day.
Sustainable shoes not only help preserve nature but also provide a wide range of benefits like increased durability, breathability, comfort and style.
In this blog post, our master craftsmen here at Loungers will explore why choosing sustainable footwear is essential for saving the planet—one step at a time.
First let’s get the mini answer before we find out why you should be choosing sustainable shoe brands.
Fast fashion production is responsible for 10% of global carbon emissions and produces garments with a low lifespan that end up in landfills. Sustainable shoes not only help preserve nature but also provide increased durability, breathability, comfort and style. Loungers is dedicated to responsible production practices while partnering with Beyond Trees and One Tribe to save the planet.
Let’s start by exploring the impact on our planet of the fast fashion industry.
How fast fashion impacts our planet
Fast fashion is becoming a huge problem in the world today, with clothing production now being responsible for 10% of global carbon emissions according to recent reports.
As a result, many conscious shoppers are looking for new sustainable options when it comes to buying fashion.
This type of clothing production has increasingly negative environmental impacts.
From the excessive amounts of water and energy used to create garments to the hundreds of millions of tons of wasted textiles disposed annually, fast fashion is anything but sustainable. Its effects on our environment are truly staggering.
One of the main sources of concern is that fast fashion produces garments made of low-cost materials like polyester, acrylic, and nylon that often require large energy input in order to produce.
In addition, these fabrics are not biodegradable and end up in landfills where they can release unhealthy toxins into the air and water systems.
On the other hand, high-quality items such as premium Italian leather and handcrafted lounge shoes are more responsibly produced and have longer lifespans than their fast fashion counterparts.
Here at Loungers, we're dedicated to creating footwear that you love without compromising the planet.
Read on to discover more reasons why you should choose sustainability.
Why You Should Choose Sustainable footwear brands
With over-consumption and waste being two of the biggest environmental challenges we face today, it’s important to think about the clothes we buy and how they will affect our planet.
Sustainable fashion brands are a great way to reduce your impact on the environment while still having fashionable clothes that you can wear with pride.
Sustainable fashion brands are leading the way towards a healthier planet. Choose a brand that offers high-quality products made from sustainable materials and practices—not only for the environment but also for your health.
Not only do sustainable fashion brands uphold responsible production standards, but they also produce quality clothing that won't wear out quickly with time.
The best sustainable shoe brands use ethical methods, including tanning and dyeing processes that are more environmentally friendly than traditional alternatives.
