Women's Vegan Boots

The best women’s boots of the season are vegan, Ladies! And today you have more choices than ever before. I looked at, literally, thousands of boots for this post, which was both fun and exhausting. On the one hand, I’ve never seen such a variety of faux suede, vegan leather, and other cruelty-free boots. But on the other, it was disappointing to see so many top designers still using leather and suede in their creations.

The other source of frustration is that it’s still very hard to find eco-friendly women’s boots. I’ll admit that many of the vegan boots in this post are made with synthetic materials, like polyurethane, which are vegan but not eco-friendly. When I do find the rare brands that are both, I highlight them with UniGuide eco-friendly leaf icon. A shining example of this is Will’s Vegan Shoes. This is a company that’s doing everything right. Will’s makes 100% vegan boots and shoes in ethical working conditions, plus, their supply chain is sustainable, and their operations are carbon neutral.

This post is organized by types of boots, but I suggest scrolling through them all because I had to make a call to put certain styles in one category, while they could easily be found in two. (I’ll be adding jump links to the boots list soon, so you can click to get that section.) Enjoy!

Rope Sandals for Men and Women

While they’re sometimes referred to as “Jesus sandals,” rope sandals were around long before Jesus made his miraculous walk on water. In fact, not only are rope sandals old, they’re the most enduring shoe trend of all time.

The oldest pair of shoes ever discovered was a pair of rope sandals that was found in Fort Rock Cave, Oregon in 1938. According to Wikipedia, Fort Rock Cave is the location of the earliest evidence of human habitation in the United States.

These ancient sandals were radiocarbon-dated to being from 9,000 to 13,000 years old. They comprised a simple platform that was made from woven sagebrush bark, with rope straps that were also made from plants. (Something every vegan yearns for: plant-based shoes!) The sandals were preserved under a layer of volcanic ash.

The sandals are now part of the Oregon Historical Society’s collection, and they can be seen at the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History in Eugene, Oregon.

The oldest shoes ever discovered were rope sandals.

I was happy to find a selection of rope sandals for women and men that have modern accoutrements, including soles that are probably a lot more comfortable than sagebrush bark, but that still maintain some eco-conscious attributes.

Women's Vegan Sandals

Ladies, if you haven’t noticed yet, we’re living in the Golden Age of Vegan Shoes because I’ve never seen such an amazing selection of women’s vegan sandals.

Before we start looking at these lovelies, can we all just take a moment to give a big, standing ovation to all of the animal advocates out there who have gotten us to this point in human evolution? That includes the nonprofits – PETA, The Humane Society, Mercy for Animals, Direct Action Everywhere, and many others – plus, the activists, the designers, and all of you who ever went to a shoe website, typed in the word “vegan,” and refused to buy anything if it yielded zero results. Well done! Thankfully, today, there’s a lots of cute ladies’ vegan sandals to choose from.

We do still have some evolving to do when it comes to making sandals that are also eco-friendly. While there are now a number of great brands making vegan flip flops that are made with recycled and other eco-friendly materials, when it comes to sandals, it’s still hard to find styles made with sustainable materials. When I do find vegan shoe brands that emphasize sustainability, I note them with UniGuide’s eco-friendly leaf icon.

One positive thing I’ve learned since doing my research on vegan shoes is that these days it’s less common for the adhesives used in shoes to be made with animal products. The reason is that synthetic glues simply perform better – they’re more flexible and last longer than the glues that contained animal byproducts. Needless to say, this is good news for animals and those of us who look for vegan shoes.

There are many pretty vegan sandals in this post, so if you’re looking for a certain type, you can click on these links to jump to that section:

Wedge and Platform Sandals

Next, I’ll show you some really cute women’s vegan wedge sandals and platform sandals. But first, a little history lesson…

Back in the day, when it was hard to find stylish vegan sandals, compassionate women could always turn to espadrilles. Made with cotton fabric and braided jute, espadrilles were vegan way before vegan was cool. And when the platform wedge heel came along, coupled with laces wrapping up feminine legs – forget it – even men who didn’t have foot fetishes suddenly had foot fetishes.

But when were wedge heels invented?

According to Renee Jacques in the Huffington Post, wedge heel shoes were invented in the 1940s by the famous Italian shoe designer Salvatore Ferragamo. Because of World War II era sanctions against Italy, the designer was unable to acquire the steel that was normally used in the heels of his shoes. “I experimented with pieces of Sardinian cork,” wrote Mr. Ferragamo, “pushing and gluing and fixing and trimming until the entire space between the sole and the heel was blocked solid.” Testament to his ingenious design skills, the new style quickly took off and, as you’ll see in this post, it shows no sign of becoming passé.

Unfortunately, you won’t find any wedge sandals by Ferragamo in this post. Why? You guessed it – I couldn’t find any by Ferragamo that are vegan. Sadly, Mr. Ferragamo passed away in the 1960s, too soon to experience the vegan footwear revolution that is, well – afoot! We can only hope that his enduring fashion house will wake up and smell the espresso and honor his fashion forward thinking by creating some cruelty-free sandals for the women of today.

Until then, there are these…

Organic Cotton and Recycled Hoodies for Women and Men

Hoodies date back to Medieval times, when hooded cloaks were worn by monks. I like to think the organic cotton and recycled hoodies featured in this post do justice to their spiritual roots. “How so?” you might ask. Well, I think their creation is in harmony with an evolved, spiritual mindset because they’re made with eco-conscious materials.

All of the hoodies in this post are made with organic cotton or recycled materials, and in some cases, a blend of the two. I’ve written about why commercial cotton is bad for the environment in my post about organic cotton and recycled vegan t-shirts, as well as my post about organic cotton and recycled hammocks. Those same principles apply to hooded tops as well. Why buy a hooded sweatshirt made with sub-standard materials that aren’t good for our planet when you have a selection like these to choose from?

Vegan Tank Tops in Eco-Friendly Organic Cotton, Recycled Polyester, and Tencel

Of the 326 million people in the U.S., about 19.5 million – or 6% – now identify with being vegan. The rise of veganism, not just in the U.S. but all over the world, has been a boon for animals, human health, and for our fight to mitigate climate change. Do you want to help keep that momentum going? One way is to spread the message with a vegan tank top! The vegan tank tops I feature here are extra cool because they’re made with organic cotton and other eco-friendly materials.

The Best Eco-Friendly Fabrics

Organic Cotton Tank Tops

As much as possible, on UniGuide, I try to feature the most eco-friendly versions of products within their respective categories that I can find. For example, I’ll always feature organic cotton products over commercial cotton, and recycled synthetics over those made with virgin materials. You can read about why organic cotton is better than commercial cotton, as well as why materials like recycled polyester are better than virgin polyester, in my posts about vegan t-shirts  and organic cotton and recycled hammocks.

I found some vegan tank tops that are made with organic cotton and rayon bamboo blends, but I chose not to include those here. While it’s sometimes marketed as “bamboo fabric,” the version of rayon that comes from bamboo cellulose has a pretty heavy environmental footprint. With rayon, very little of the original natural material fibers from the plants are left after a production process that utilizes a lot of polluting chemical and heavy metals.

Recycled Polyester and Tencel® Tank Tops

I do feature some vegan tank tops in this post that are made with other blended fabrics. For example, there are some eco-friendly tank tops made with organic cotton and recycled polyester, and others made with organic cotton and Tencel®.

Tencel is a quasi-natural/quasi-synthetic fabric that is actually environmentally friendly. It’s made with a cellulose that comes from non-GMO, organically-farmed, and non-old growth eucalyptus trees that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC.)

In addition, the solvents used in the production of Tencel get recycled. Tencel has other environmental certifications, including the Oeko Tex 100 textile certification, which means it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals. Furthermore, Tencel has been awarded with the European Award for the Environment by the EU.

Now, on to the tank tops!

Cute Vegan T-Shirts

Sometimes you need to wear your heart on your sleeve, or your values on your chest, as the case may be. I looked for the best vegan t-shirts I could find to share them with you here. What makes these vegan t-shirts the best? Besides being fun and purposeful, they’re all made with organic cotton and some are a recycled polyester / organic cotton blend.

As you may know, while it’s a natural material, commercial cotton is not eco-friendly for a couple of key reasons:

  1. It requires a lot of water to grow.
  2. If it’s not organic, it’s grown with a lot of pesticide and herbicides.

Thus, I always look to see if there are organic cotton versions of the products that I present on UniGuide that are made with cotton. I also look for recycled materials, and in this case – t-shirts that are made with recycled polyester vs. virgin polyester.

Like commercial cotton, polyester is not an eco-friendly material. It uses a lot of water in its production, in addition to emitting greenhouse gas emissions when it’s made. Furthermore, it’s not biodegradable. But it can be recycled. So, it’s always great to see recycled polyester being kept out of the landfill and used in cool products like these vegan t-shirts!

Reebok’s sustainable sneakers are called “The NPC UK Cotton + Corn” and they retail for about $95.00. They’re not quite biodegradable enough to throw into your compost bin once you’re done with them, but Reebok says they’re heading in that direction with upcoming product iterations.

Here’s a video about Reebok’s eco sneakers:

Reebok made the sneakers in a limited edition, and they’ve already sold out. But you can get on their mailing list for updates on when they’ll be available again. While the natural-colored sneakers have a simple, minimalist look, they’re truly groundbreaking, and they promise great things for not just the eco fashion world, but the entire world.

Eco-Friendly Footwear from Reebok’s Parent Company: Adidas

In 2005, shoemaking giant Adidas acquired Reebok, and it’s really cool to see both organizations breaking new ground with using more eco-friendly materials in their shoes.

Adidas Parley Women's Running Shoes

As you may have read in my post about eco-friendly and recycled flip flops, Adidas has collaborated with the nonprofit Parley for the Oceans, which intercepts plastic waste on beaches and in coastal communities before it reaches the ocean. They recycle this waste into threads that Adidas weaves into materials for not just flip flops, but some really cool eco-friendly sneakers and athletic wear.

Men's and Women's Recycled Sunglasses

What’s better than a great looking pair of sunglasses? Two words: recycled sunglasses. I was super excited to find so many forward-thinking, socially conscious companies making stylish sunglasses out of recycled materials. When you learn about the inspiration behind these companies’ products and brands, plus the way so many give back by supporting charitable causes, I think you’ll feel as psyched as I did when I first read about them.

As you’re probably already aware, we’re experiencing a global plastic waste crisis. So, recycling plastic into other useful products helps to keep it out of our oceans and landfills – at least for a bit longer. It turns out that sunglasses are an ideal use for recycled materials, as they require only small pieces. As a result, product designers can create cool sunglasses from small material scraps. Consequently, we’re starting to see some innovative sunglasses made with recycled and upcycled materials. The groundbreaking companies showcased here are making recycled sunglasses out of recycled plastic waste from the ocean, as well as a host of other reclaimed materials, including skateboard decks, aluminum, wood flooring, vinyl records, and more.

We humans buy a lot of sunglasses.

People all over the world wear sunglasses, and let’s admit it – many of us own more than one pair. In 2019, it’s expected that Americans alone will buy over 200 million pairs of sunglasses. (Statista.) When you combine this with the number purchased by people from other countries, you can see there’s a massive market for this accessory. After your cell phone charger, sunscreen, razor, and toothbrush – sunglasses are the most common item that you’ll forget to pack when leaving for vacation. So, what do you do? You buy a new pair.

Thankfully, recycled sunglasses and those made with other eco-friendly materials, like wood, bamboo, and bioplastic, are hitting the beaches and streets around the world. And they can’t get here fastest enough! In addition to recycled sunglasses, if you’d like to see cool shades made from other eco-friendly materials, check out my post on wood frame and bamboo sunglasses.

Wood and Bamboo Sunglasses for Women and Men 2

Eco-friendly sunglasses make a fashion forward statement in today’s world, and wood frame sunglasses are some of the coolest to hit the streets in recent years. Plus, the selection of stylish bamboo sunglasses has never been better. In a way, both are the quintessential eco-conscious shades because they’re unmistakably “plant-based.”

People often refer to bamboo as a wood, as in “I’m looking for bamboo wood sunglasses,” because bamboo has the same aesthetic qualities as real wood. However, bamboo is actually a fast-growing grass – it holds the world’s record for the fastest growing plant.

In addition to being Earth-friendly, both wood and bamboo sunglasses are lightweight, so they’re comfortable enough to wear all day long. Not to mention, many styles float, making them the perfect accessory for having fun in the water on a sunny summer day.

Today, you can find wood-framed sunglasses in cherry wood, maple, pear, and other varieties. And because every tree is different, no two pairs are exactly alike. Some designers are also making sunglasses from reclaimed wood that was previously used for flooring, skateboard decks, and other products.

Aside from the aesthetics, why should you buy sunglasses that are made with wood frames, bamboo, or other sustainable materials?

All over the world, people wear sunglasses. This year, Americans alone will buy 200 million pairs. With our growing plastic pollution crisis, it only makes sense to reduce the amount of virgin plastic we buy. Purchasing sunglasses that use less virgin plastic, or none at all, is the optimal way to go.

Here are some innovative brands making cool sunglasses with wood and bamboo frames:

27 Vegan Cowboy Boots and Western Boots

Gram Parsons, the Grandfather of Country Rock
Gram Parsons

Can you be vegan and still wear cowboy boots? Heck yeah, you can! When doing my research, I was happy to find a variety of vegan cowboy boots and western boots for all you compassionate cowgirls out there. I also found a few styles for cruelty-free cowboys, but sadly, there aren’t as many leather-free styles for guys as there are for gals. You’ll find a few styles for men at the end of the post and I’ll be sure to add more as I find them.

To kick things off :o), I’d like to start this vegan cowboy boots guide with a quote from one of my all-time favorite country stars, the grandfather of country rock, Gram Parsons:

“We don’t wear sequins because we think we’re great. We wear them because we think sequins are great.”

–Gram Parsons

The History of Cowboy Boots

First, a little history lesson… Cowboy boots date back to the 1600s, when riding boots started to appear in Europe that had “high tops, pointed toes, and 2″ stacked heels,” says ShoeInfo. But where did those 2″ heels originate? Apparently, they were first seen in the 13th century on invading Mongol tribesmen who wore bright red wooden heels on their boots. According to ShoeInfo, “Mongols were consummate horsemen and their easy victories left a mark on European society.”

Since owning and caring for a horse required wealth, and being on horseback placed a person physically above those who were not, people on horseback in high heels became associated with nobility. To this day, we say “well-heeled” to describe a person who is wealthy or aristocratic. Eventually, heeled riding boots made their way to the Americas, quite possibly on the feet of the Conquistadors.

Throughout history, boots were made with animal skin. Thankfully, today we have access to a variety of materials that make durable, warm, and comfortable boots without harming animals.

So, without further ado, here are some sweet faux-leather, faux-suede, and more vegan cowgirl and cowboy boots!

Cool Men's Vegan Boots

Men’s boots have made huge strides in the past few years, with more options available than ever before that are cool, durable, and cruelty-free. Plus, there’s a revolution happening on the materials front. Today, we’re seeing innovations like Piñatex™ (also referred to as “pineapple leather”), which is a non-woven, leather alternative that is made with sustainable pineapple leaf fibers. Other new eco-friendly and vegan materials include Mycro©, a cotton-backed micro-fiber polyurethane that carries the European Union Ecolabel. The EU Ecolabel denotes that a product has met strict environmental criteria that takes into account the entire product life cycle – from the extraction of raw materials to production, packaging, transport, end use, and disposal.

If you like the look of leather but not the idea of wearing someone else’s skin on your feet, today you can find non-leather boots that break in and get better with age, just as the classic leather styles do. Or, if like an even more natural aesthetic, you can find cool men’s boots made with natural, eco-friendly materials like hemp. Today, you don’t have to compromise on style, quality, or your social values: the best men’s boots meet all of your criteria.

If you have a specific style of boot in mind, you can click these jump links to go directly to that section. (And as always on UniGuide: all of the styles shown here are vegan.)

21 Recycled, Vegan, and Eco-Friendly Flip Flops

eco-friendly-flip-flopsOf the different shoes I present on UniGuide, flip flops are a shoe-in for the highest echelons of vegan and eco-friendly shoes. Today, you can find a variety of really cool vegan flip flops that are also gentle on the planet. There are styles made with recycled plastic, upcycled tires, cork, hemp, and more. Other eco-friendly materials include natural rubber, recycled polyester, and upcycled industrial hoses.

If we could wear them every day, we probably would. Why? Because flip flops feel like sunshine, warm weather, the beach, and relaxation. But if your flip flops are made from materials that are not Earth- or animal-friendly – like plastic, certain types of foam, suede, or leather – it erodes their feel-good vibe.

Traditional Japanese Zōri Sandals

According to Wikipedia, flip flops transcend cultures, as they’re worn by people all over the world. The earliest record we have of a flip flop-style sandal was the type worn by the ancient Egyptians in 1,5oo B.C. But the modern flip flops that we all know and love today were probably inspired by the Japanese zōri, which American soldiers brought back to the U.S. after World War II.

So, if you’re getting ready for summer, going on vacation somewhere warm, bumming around town, or walking from the shower to your locker at the gym, look no further – you’ve come to the right place to find some cool flip flops that are also easy on the Earth. (And it goes without saying – on UniGuide, any flip flops you see will be vegan.)

1. Recycled Ocean Plastic Flip Flops by adidas and Parley

Adidas Parley Recycled Ocean Plastic Flip FlopsIt’s estimated that 80% of the debris that pollutes our oceans is plastic. This is why I’m a huge fan of the collaboration between adidas and Parley. Parley for the Oceans is an organization that sets out to intercept waste on the beach and in coastal communities before it reaches the ocean. They recycle this waste into threads that adidas then uses to make not only flips flops and sneakers, but also a new line of yoga and active wear. The sustainable cork foot bed in these sandals makes them even cooler. The adidas Eezay Parley Slide is available in men’s and women’s styles.

Warning: They have so many cool, vibrant color combinations that it’s going to be hard to choose.

The company puts an emphasis on using the “most practical, natural, recycled, and planet friendly materials possible.”
