Stylish Eco-Friendly Shoes: Naya Shoes

Looking to support a shoe company with a soul for the earth? Consider Naya Shoes. I discovered this line of shoes while checking out Nordstroms portfolio of eco-conscious products. I must say that these shoes are very stylish! I did ask a company representative if they carry an animal friendly line of shoes, not currently, but hopefully they will strongly consider doing so, given the growing number of vegans in the marketplace. See the features below that make for a greener shoe:

1) Vegetable-tanned leathers and linings
2) Natural or recycled content fabrics
3) Foot beds and outsoles containing natural cork
4) Water-based cements
5) Boxes made with 80% recycled paper pulp
6) Soy-based inks and water-based glue
7) Reusable shoe bags and shoe forms made with recycled PET
The company seeks to follow the triple bottom line in its approach to operating its business. Composting, recycling and waste reduction are integrated into business operations. Naya's key designer also lives a green and active lifestyle. She drives a hybrid, enjoys the outdoors and enjoys spending time with her two dogs.
