Finding eco-friendly fashion can be somewhat of a challenge, especially if you don’t want your wardrobe to look eco-friendly. So when I was introduced to Patagonia Shoe Company, I was really impressed with the quality of their shoes.  I have one lone pair of eco-friendly sneakers I bought 2 years ago that I love, but a girl has to have options!

Patagonia Shoes makes comfy functional footwear and uses recycled materials when they can, as well as working to reduce their environmental footprint.  They accept all clothing and shoes back through their Common Threads Initiative program that either recycles or repruposes the materials.  You simply ship your items back to the company.  They even encourage customers to buy or sell their shoes second hand to extend the life of the product.  What company does that? One that actually cares, I think.

Right now, in conjunction with, Patagonia is donating $10 to Healthy Child Healthy World (an organization dedicated to creating a less toxic world) for every pair of shoes sold from now until October 17, 2011.  So what’s a girl to do? Buy shoes of course. It’s for a good cause…. RIGHT?    I am currently sporting a super cute pair of short boots for fall – The Patagonia Addie Ruffle Boot in Peat Moss.  They’re constructed of 70% natural hevea latex in the sole and heal and 70% recycled polyurethane footbed.  They are stitched from the outside to reduce the need for solvents and adhesives. They are comfy and look adorable with jeans.  (That’s the most important part, right?).

How About a Pair Of Patagonia Shoes for You? is giving one of my lucky readers their very own pair of Patagonia Shoes, along with a copy of the Healthy Child Healthy World Healthy Home Book.
