Sam putting labels on our 100% recycled boxes

Ready, Willing and Able is the mantra at the Doe Fund.  The Doe Fund is an amazing organization.  Its mission is to, “develop programs to empower formerly homeless and low-income individuals.” GreenSoul Shoes is proud to partner with the Doe Fund for all of our fulfillment operations.  We showed them the basics about our products and they were off leading the rest!

From receiving our shipment of sandals, counting them, sorting through orders, packing and shipping them out, the Doe Fund worked tirelessly to complete and send out our first shipment. Hurray!

GreenSoul Shoes package

We are hoping you will notice the little things–like the fact that our box is made 100% from recycled paper (and is 100% recyclable) and the physical box is used for both packaging and shipping to reduce waste.  The end caps are made of recycled plastic and are 100% recyclable.  Our bags that are used the store the shoes are made from airline’s seat headrest (no worries, these have been properly washed).  And of course, our sandals are made from 100% recycled rubber from tires and inner tubes.

We are proud of our product.  Just like the Doe Fund, we are ready, willing and able to tackle more ways to produce awesome products mindful of our environment and to create multiple ways to give back.

One step closer to shoeing 1 million children in 5 years. Thank you for your support!

Happy Holidays everyone!  Alastair, Stephen and Iris.
