These sleek spring sandals are made of recycled plastic, and they're an eco-friendly collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Melissa. Unlike the PVC jelly shoes we rocked growing up, these Melissa Three Strap Sandals are sustainably and ethically produced in Brazil of recycled MEFLEX and are 100% recyclable.

Implications - Furthermore, "the shoes are totally cruelty free and devoid of animal products." The pieces are also manufactured in a factory made of recycled materials in a poverty-stricken area in Brazil. Employees of the factory are paid above average wage, boosting the Brazilian economy and making eco-conscious, fashionable products for consumers all in one fell swoop.
