As soon as the weather warms up, we turn to Nashville-based Nisolo for sustainable shoes. They’re beautiful and comfy to wear every day. Here are three favorite styles…
First off, Thursday is Earth Day, and we’re glad to say that Nisolo is a Certified B Corporation and provides living wages across their supply chain. One thing I especially love? Because of their in-house financial literacy training program, 100% of Nisolo producers in Peru now have a bank account, compared to 10% of producers four years ago. They clearly care about the people they work with, as well as their customers.
Nisolo also measures, reduces, and offsets 100% of their carbon emissions as a Climate Neutral Certified brand. For every Nisolo product sold, a contribution is made to help protect forests in the Amazon Basin. They have been able to protect 594,090 trees covering an area of 111,406,472 square feet (that’s the same size as 869 soccer fields) from deforestation in the Amazon Basin and offset 5,750 metrics tons of CO2.
And, on top of that, their shoes are beautiful and comfortable. I’ve worn their sandals, sneakers and boots for years. (Bonus for us ladies with larger feet: they offer sizes 5-11 in select styles.) Nisolo is one of those companies we’re been proud to wear and recommend.
Bonus: Today Nisolo is offering Cup of Jo readers 20% off their first purchase (excludes cleaning kits, masks, Ethical Marketplace) with code 20COJ. Good until April 30th.
Which of their styles do you like best? Which would you wear? See all their shoes here. xoxo
