It's JULY and I hope you all had an amazing 4th of July weekend, but I truly can't believe it's July! I was speaking to some parents this weekend who were already talking about back-to-school shopping!! Can you believe that? WOW-EEE! Speaking of school shopping, I am a bit sad to write this post! Why? Because it's all about one of my favorite Eco brands for kids (and adults) which will no longer be available come the new year: Simple Shoes. I first learned of Simple Shoes when I was researching green/eco clothes for the boys' first photo shoot for Babiekins Magazine. I was sooo happy to find Simple Shoes because they are cute, easy to maintain AND SUPER eco-friendly. Can't beat that!
So I thought, I HAVE to:
A. write a post and get you parents out there to get a pair for summer, school or even as a holiday gift and
B. Get the boys some new pairs before it's too late!!
WHY DO I CARE?
Have you ever purchased shoes with organic shoelaces? Ever purchased sneakers and received a shoebox and insole made from recycled paper? How about soles made from recycled rubber tires? Well, those are the types of materials Simple Shoes uses to make their shoes, and if incorporating these materials into each product isn't reducing the amount of waste in our landfills, I don't know what is! That's why I care!
Simple Shoes has footwear for infants, your little walkers and shoes for big kids up to twelve. I am sooo gonna miss them!
Check out some of the styles below, then hurry and get them by visiting www.simpleshoes.com before they're gone! :(
Why are all the good brands, with GREAT GREEN missions going bye, bye?
