ANKLECO is now on Kickstarter, introducing its ethical footwear styles to the world via a crowdfunding campaign that will resonate with many consumers who are invested in making sustainable purchases. The brand's footwear is comfortable, odor-free and durable thanks to its unique combination of materials—recycled plastic, bamboo fiber, natural rubber and recycled coffee grounds.
ANKLECO's footwear products are available in four designs that help to address some of the pitfalls of the shoe industry as a whole. While ANKLECO cites that are 20 billion shoes produced annually, only one out of every three pairs is recycled. The brand's sustainable styles boast simple design features like cotton eyelets in place of metal for ease of recycling.
