Found over on TreeHugger: "The nice little shoe company getting in touch with its inner hippie", also known as Simple: A Nice Little Shoe Company. Simple is the creator of the funky ecosneak as pictured here, as well as several other shoes. All are made from wisely recycled materials, such as tires for rubber soles, organic cotton or hemp for uppers, recycled PET and more eco-friendly materials, and also use water-based glues. Many shoes are vegan- and veggie-friendly, and all their styles are drop-dead funky. They have created a wide variety of styles including mens, womens and kids flavours, sandals, sneakers, casual shoes and even bags. They also have a cool line of Stop Global Warming shoes, where they donate $5 to stopglobalwarming.org for every pair they sell. These puppies would definitely make an ecochick a style statement.
