Environmentally Friendly Shoes: El Naturalista

Are you looking for a quality pair of eco-friendly shoes? I recently visited a friend of mine and tried on her El Naturalista shoes. I had to own a pair!

You do your part to recycle and be as earth-friendly as possible, why stop there? The inviting Iggdrasil mary jane from El Naturalista is comfortable, attractive, and just right for the environmentalist in all of us. The vegetable-tanned leather is churned with ground tree bark and river stones for weeks to make the hide resilient to dirt, water, and daily wear and tear. It features pretty contrast stitching, too.

El Naturalista takes social and environmental responsibility seriously, which I was pleased to learn after buying my shoes.

El Naturalista frog Eco Policy

El Naturalista is an international shoe brand that makes comfortable yet fashionable footwear inspired by nature and people.

Adherence to our environmental policy is a prerequisite for doing business at El Naturalista. All suppliers, factories, agents and sales personnel must be strongly committed to our earth friendly practices.

We are continually working to find even better and more eco-friendly ways to produce our shoes. Our customers are aware of our environmental policies and our increasing sales demonstrate that consumers approve and support- our efforts.

  • We use natural materials and dyes

  • We avoid using polluting substances and toxic products

  • We seek to protect the environment

  • We maximize the use of biodegradable and recyclable/recycled materials

  • We pay fair compensation to providers and employees

  • We promoted traditional forms of production

  • We support the use of appropriate new technologies

  • We operate with corporate transparency

Shoes and material

El Naturalista uses the least harmful materials in the production of our shoes. We use natural dyes. We use recycled materials as much as possible: for example, the recycled polyurethane inner liner and the recycled rubber insoles (N 096 Iggdrasil). When dyeing leather, El Naturalista uses the least harmful chrome combination for the environment. Additionally, El Naturalista has developed the "pergamino leather", which is treated without the use of chrome.

I am very impressed with the quality and comfort of El Naturalista, and I definitely will explore other styles by this brand.
