Greensoul SandalsThe sandals from GreenSoul Shoes are every bit as eco-friendly as their name suggests. And best of all, they're socially aware to boot!

For every pair of GreenSoul shoes sold, the label will donate another to a barefoot child. Some 300 million children currently risk disease and injury as they walk around without shoes. That's a massive problem, and while GreenSoul Shoes can't solve it alone it can help some of those children. The label looks to donate shoes to one million needy kids during its first five years of operation. Currently it's helping little ones in Cambodia, Vietnam, and Peru, but it's keen to expand its operations to other areas in need.

The brand further helps poor communities by employing artisans in these same affected areas. They make each sandal from rubber tires and inner tubes rescued from local landfills.

It's so inspiring to see businesses like GreenSoul making a difference in needy communities, not simply by throwing money at them but empowering the people who live there to better their lives. The opportunities that companies like GreenSoul give these people struggling to make their way in the world are more valuable than mere dollars.

You can support GreenSoul Shoes' vital work by purchasing sandals, jewelry, or handbags from the label's online store.
