Etiko Fairtrade Brand is 100% vegan.
Etiko is a family-owned and operated apparel, footwear business that has had the respect and promotion of human rights since its founding in 2005. We have come across this brand on numerous occasions and have always been impressed with their commitment to not just quality but to ethically producing quality products.
Recently they released a summer series of their rubber thongs with each variety contributing 10% to a particular charity organisation. The thongs are all made Fair Trade from a blend of certified natural and recycled rubber in Sri Lanka. They claim that they are the most comfortable thongs / flip flops you can buy!
We have written a little about each of them below and feel free to click through to their shop page if you see a pair you like!
