KEEN’s Sustainable, Recycled Flip Flops Are Made From Factory Floor Waste

Apr 10, 2020

Category: Gear

With so much awareness being brought to the planet’s increasingly-bad plastic waste problem, more brands than ever before are turning to sustainable materials and manufacturing processes. Other brands that have been in the game for a while, however, are figuring out even more innovative and productive ways to reduce waste. KEEN is one such brand and their new Harvest flip flops might be the most eco-friendly production sandals on the planet.

For the most part, these look like typical flip flops — which was sort of a part of the point. The one thing that stands out, however, might be that colorful speckled sole. As it turns out, those soles are actually made from 50% recycled rubber, largely collected from the brand’s factory floor — helping them to eliminate unnecessary waste in a far more productive manner than ever before. But it doesn’t stop there; the strap webbing is also crafted from recycled water bottles, the midsole is built in-part from recycled polyurethane, and even the anti-odor treatment applied to them utilizes natural probiotics instead of harmful chemicals. Slip into a pair now for $70.
