Lightweight Anti-Bacterial Shoes

Nature Shoes' Compact Slip-On Footwear is Incredibly Versatile

— June 11, 2019 — Eco
Nature Shoes, a Canadian company, recently launched its newest lightweight, slip-on shoes that are perfect for commuting anywhere.

The classic shoe comes in a variety of colors, so you be as colorful or as neutral as desired. The shoe is completely waterproof, making it ideal for rain or shine. The stylish, sleek shoe is washable, allowing you to clean it after any adventure. Moreover, the shoe is made out of an anti-bacterial material to keep you and your surroundings safer.

Nature Shoes plans to be completely life cycle-managed by 2023, making it a sustainable option for the eco-conscious consumer. The brand currently has The Remix Project which seeks to recycle used Native Shoes in various community projects. For example, the recycled shoe material can be used to create playground flooring, seating, and insulation.

As more consumers and companies are seeking closed-loop products, we can strive for a greener tomorrow.
