The other week I was at Washington Square, and was walking around the mall. Went into journeys, the shoe store, and they had several pairs of shoes that were made of recycled material.  So, when in class and was asked to write a blog about something that is sustainable, the first thing that popped into my mind were those shoes. The company that makes those shoes is Simple.  Some material they use are car tires (soles of the shoes), hemp, organic cotton, recycled inner tubes, eco-certified leather and suede, and bamboo.  From reading their “about us” on their website, they are shooting for 100% sustainability.

Their shoes are pretty cool, but they’re expensive. Most anything that is organic, or sustainable is expensive. That’s what I’ve noticed, so far.
