Sneakers, Sandals & Sustainable Style
We asked our lovely friend Martine Alexander (@martinealexander on Insta) to choose some of her favourite sustainable brands to style up with her top Air & Grace picks for Earth Day!
If you missed our Live over on Instagram, you can watch HERE.
Before we recap on the gorgeous looks, we thought we'd tell you a little bit about how we do things differently at Air & Grace...
Care is in everything we do, at every stage.
Our shoes are designed with longevity in mind. True style doesn't expire.... They're shoes you can wear again and again.
Responsibly Sourced: As members of The Leather Working Group, we're committed to sourcing our leathers from accredited, responsible tanneries that adhere to the highest anti-pollution standards.
Who Made My Shoes? We are proud to work exclusively with family run factories in Portugal and Spain, who are regulated under European laws. This means we can be sure the talented craftspeople who make our shoes are looked after, just like an extension of our own team.
Minimising miles: Choosing European partners helps us to minimise the miles your shoes travel, and reduces our carbon footprint. We’re able to produce in smaller quantities to avoid waste, and transport them by road, not air.
Making changes: We try to minimise our use of plastics wherever possible. We switched to using FSC certified boxes for all of our packaging, created from materials from well managed forests and/or recycled sources.
