Snoozies! Foot Coverings Super Soft Polyester, But NOT Really Natural
Snoozies Footie Slippers are super soft and cozy, but unfortunately, this is another one of those incidents where a PR company sends a product that is not a good fit for this blog.
In each response I send to companies, I clearly state: "All products will be evaluated based upon their eco-friendly and natural properties."
Although Snoozies comes in cute patterns and are soft, they are made from 100% polyester. Green Choices explains why synthetic fabrics are not good for the environment or workers:
Nylon and polyester
Made from petrochemicals, these synthetics are non-biodegradable as well, so they are inherently unsustainable on two counts. Nylon manufacture creates nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas 310 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Making polyester uses large amounts of water for cooling, along with lubricants which can become a source of contamination. Both processes are also very energy-hungry.
If this doesn't both you, than you might enjoy Snoozies:
Snoozies are not socks and they're not slippers - sort of a crossover between the two and that's why we call them "foot coverings"! They are made with a brushed fleece exterior in colorful and fun printed patterns and then lined with a soft Sherpa fleece inside. Soft, comfy, warm and just simply adorable - the newest foot coverings for your feet! Each pair has a non skid sole so you can feel safe wearing them on wood or tile floors. Keeps feet warm even on the coldest of days. They also work in warm climates where air conditioning keeps floors cold. Fully machine washable and won't shrink! Snoozies make great gifts and "me too" purchases.
may be a greener choice for keeping your toes toasty, especially if undyed.
Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review would be positive or negative.
