I want to share a really cool shoe brand with you today: Veerah. The reason why I get excited about this brand is because the heels are not only made with cruelty-free and vegan materials, but also with a plant-based memory foam interior that provides arch, heel and ball support. The shoes also have an anti-friction pillow in the back, organic cotton lining on top of the memory foam, and an antimicrobial plant-based cushion for breathability and comfort. For all my female babes, it doesn't get better than this! These heels are like the vegan Ironman of the shoe industry! Did I mention they also come in the most beautiful box made with soy ink (free of toxic materials) that makes it easier for the ink to be remove during the recycling process? Or.. you can also keep the box and use it to store things. Like I did! In case you're wondering, Veerah means "warrior" in Sanskrit, and this wonderful brand is a female-run B Corp (which means Veerah defines their goals based on positive impacts on society, community and the environment) and gives back to our world big time through their 1-10-100 project.
I paired these Veerah heels with Jeans from Gap's sustainable line. (Yes!! Gap is taking new initiatives to reduce water use and pollution and is part of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition where companies are evaluated on material types, products, facilities and processes based on a range of environmental and product design choices. They are also planning to add measures for labor and social standards. Read more about it here).
The top, I bought 4 years ago at Urban Outfitters and still wear it. Reuse and recycle, peeps!
