Okabashi Shoes: Recyclable, Affordable, and Made in the U.S.A
Every summer I look forward to the Okabashi shoe display at Whole Foods. I LOVE their shoes! Here's why:
Most of their shoes are under $20 and have a two year guarantee.
According to their website, last year Okabashi was able to "reuse over 100,000 pounds of scrap material last year alone, diverting 10 tractor trailers full of waste from our landfills".
Normally I can't wear flip flops because their poor support aggravates my back. But these shoes are so comfortable and supportive that Okabashi is the only shoe company endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association.
Made in the U.S.A
I despise shopping because it haunts me not knowing if what I buy was made in some over-seas sweatshop by exploited or slave labor. We vote for the kind of world we want every day by how we spend our money. Since Okabashi shoes are made in the United States, our labor and safety laws assure that my consumer dollars do not fund human misery. Plus, buying American feeds our economy.
