Buy Earth Shoes ((EXCLUSIVE))
Dear Amelia, The fashion industry as a whole has a serious waste problem, and shoes are no exception. According to the U.S. Department of the Interior, Americans throw away at least 300 million pairs of shoes each year.

Consider not buying new and instead buy gently used shoes and clothing. Thrift stores, consignment shops and online marketplaces for secondhand clothing tend to be full of great shoes in excellent condition (sometimes unworn) sold for a fraction of the cost of a new pair of shoes.
If you need to buy a new pair of shoes, check to see if the manufacturer is ethical by looking for a fair trade certification and doing a little research online. Far too often giant clothing companies exploit workers and the environment in developing countries. On the other hand (or foot) some companies pride themselves on using fair labor practices and sustainable materials. 041b061a72
