Well-Designed, Sustainable Footwear is The Future!

Sustainability, Eco-friendly, and Biodegradable, these terms have been used abundantly in recent years. Reason? The increased carbon emissions, threatening the environment as well as our lives.

As we promote sustainability in every aspect of our society, the footwear industry doesn’t remain aloof.

According to McKinsey’s research, the fashion industry is accountable for 2.1 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions in 2018, about 4% of the global total.

What’s concerning, the footwear industry alone represents approx one-fifth of the total impact of the apparel industry (1.4% of the global climate impacts) in 2016.

This is because the raw material that we mostly use in our footwear is mostly non-biodegradable that takes time to decay, like, plastic, foam, leather, synthetic textiles, PVC, rubber, and others.

But the scenario is gradually changing. More people are understanding the perks of using biodegradable materials. Consumers are now seriously considering sustainable businesses.

Hence, more entrepreneurs are modifying their business models into sustainable ones.

The footwear industry has also emerged well in the last few years. Apart from dress shoes, sneakers, loafers, boots, and stilettos, increased demand for flip and flop slippers can also be observed.

Most flip-flops, for both men and women, are made of PVC, plastic, EVA, and foam. As we know by now, these raw materials take time to decompose once the flip-flops become unusable.

Hence, to come up with sustainable solutions, a number of brands are thinking of out-of-the-box innovations. Already, renowned footwear brands, like, to name a few, Adidas, Reebok, Converse, and Nike, have started their sustainability journey. Thinking of affordability, you can find a few startups also which are considering sustainable footwear.

Thus with consumers’ growing consciousness of sustainability, the footwear brands are also considering the production of sustainable footwear not as a trend but as a necessity.

We at NoStrain also prioritize sustainability. We believe in “no strain to your knees” and “no strain to our environment”. NoStrain has a collection of funky yet comfortable flip-flops with various designs and colors. Our flip-flop slippers are made of 100% natural rubber and we are planning to enhance our sustainability journey in the upcoming years.
