As we reported back in January, the infamous Jelly Shoe is back. What’s our issue with this warm weather shoe trend? Most Jellies are made from dangerous PVC. But we finally found an eco friendly alternative.
These sweet and modern Three Strap Sandals by Vivienne Westwood and Melissa, an eco-friendly manufacturer are ethically made in Brazil from MEFLEX and are…Ta dah! 100% recyclable.
MEFLEX is a non-toxic plastic made from recycled plastic that is far more breathable than PVC. The Melissa shoe factory is itself a paragon of eco-friendly virtue when it comes to production. A startling 99.9% of Melissa’s factory water and waste is recycled and the Brazil-based company’s employees are paid above average wages and benefits. Since these shoes are so eco friendly I think I will splurge and get the red flat peep toe jellies too!
