We’ve been focused on sustainability for decades, from our closed loop manufacturing process to our recycling program. This is a big factor in how we kept our factory open when 99% of shoes worn in the US are imported. Sustainability and our circular model is the key. Waste is not only bad for the environment; it is bad for a business.
Used shoes and scrap material are ground up to be recycled.
Our bio-based material is combined with recycled material to create new shoes.
Okabashi shoes contain 25% recycled material on average.
Okabashi shoes are molded from a proprietary, recyclable material that is 45% soy by weight. It is also BPA, latex, and phthalate free, and is made in the USA for a lower carbon footprint.
BUILT TO LAST
Durability is key for sustainability. Our two year guarantee contrasts with typical disposable flip flops that are cut out of sheets of foam, and eventually ends up in landfills or oceans.
Okabashi flip flops are super comfortable and built to last so you can enjoy them year after year.
RECYCLE & REUSE
If you return your well-loved and worn Okabashi shoes to our factory, we will recycle them for use in new Okabashi products or other non-apparel goods.
Once we receive your shoes, we will email you a 15% off promo code to use on your next pair of Okabashis as a thank you from us and the planet.
