These eco shoes are perfect for Earth-loving individuals who prefer to wear their sustainable sensibilities rather than just speak them. From biodegradable footwear to sandals made of vegan materials, this selection of eco shoes proves that you don't have to sacrifice fashion for eco-friendliness.

And because eco-friendliness can also include activism and charity, I've included a few eco shoes that give back to the community at large. Enjoy!
