Summer time: sandals time

As part of a product review, I received a pair of Okabashi Indigo sandals in gorgeous pink and brown :)

Okabashi is proudly made in Buford, Georgia (U.S.A. baby!!!).  The location was chosen so it would be in the center of it all and maximize fuel capacity to transport shoes and sandals from the factory into our shoe closets.

Greatest thing that caught my attention about Okabashi was their recycling process.  According to them, a lot of shoes made in the US are pretty unrecyclable.  Okabashi has a closed-loop recycling to reduce the use of virgin material and keep old shoes from becoming environmental waste.  The average Okabashi sandal has 15-25% recycled material and almost all scrap and excess material are kept free from contaminants and recycled.  What cannot be recycled is sent to partner companies for their use.

"If you return your well-loved and worn Okabashis to our factory, we will recycle them. Returns that are free from contamination are recycled for use in new Okabashi products. Returns with contaminants are processed and recycled for use in non-apparel goods."

Now on to my Indigos.  They are a little heavier than all my other sandals.  But super comfy and of course, cute!

I love every color combination they come in ... I feel a mani Okabashi inspired coming to my nails :)
