Did you know that your footwear could be killing the planet?

In 2018, the United Nations Environment Programme reported that the fashion industry was responsible for 10 percent of the world's global carbon emissions. This finding led to the U.N. Alliance for Sustainable Fashion being launched the following year. Some brands, however, had already started working on reducing their carbon footprint even before this U.N. initiative.

Meet Allbirds. This footwear and apparel brand was launched in 2016 and hopes to reduce the industry's destructive impact on the environment one item at a time.

Allbirds operates in constant communication with its partners all over the globe under a strict code of conduct to reinforce its commitment to reducing the brand's carbon footprint by 2025. It plans to achieve this with a three-step approach: to measure everything that contributes to its carbon footprint; to reduce beyond carbon neutrality, and to offset all emissions to operate as a carbon-neutral business.

Allbirds' products are made from natural materials such as wool, tree, sugar, and Trino—a material created from trees and merino wool that it's continuously developing. A pair of Allbirds sneakers might be just the eco-friendly shoes you need as you slowly go back out into the world over the summer.
