Thongs for Good from Etiko, the small Melbourne based business who were recently ranked the Most Ethical Fashion brand in Australia, are not only great looking, they are also made with a blend of natural rubber (from trees) and recycled rubber.
The illustration of Australian flora and fauna is by renowned artist Luka Vaitkeviciene and the thongs themselves are super comfy.
The shoes are produced using as much natural rubber (not petroleum-based) as possible, and made using fair trade practices – paying a 15% fair trade premium to workers and ensuring manufacturers abide by local labour laws.
They look good and do good for the workers who help produce them, for the environment, and for a number of organisations involved in protecting the environment (as well as human and animal rights).
