In 2020, we transitioned 100% of our iconic straps to traceable verifiable recycled plastic using REPREVE yarn. Since then, we’ve diverted 24 million plastic bottles from landfills and put them to better use, strapping sandals to your feet. Dedicated to turning waste that pollutes our planet into something that helps you explore it, we’re seeking out sustainable alternatives for key materials and significantly reducing our environmental footprint today to give those who come after us the freedom to explore the outdoors tomorrow.

Seeking beauty in new places, from water bottles to plastic pieces.

475 tons of used plastic bottles are cleaned, shredded and turned into little pellets. That's over 950,000 pounds of plastic that won't end up in the ocean, being mistaken for sea turtle food.

Transforming plastic waste into Teva webbing.

The cleaned and prepped pellets are then spun into yarn, and that yarn gets woven into the ultra-strong webbing in our footwear.

Webbing makes straps that connect your sandals to you.
