THIS SHOE IS MADE FROM:

THIS SHOE IS MADE FROM:

EVA[30.11%]

EVA

Cushioned and durable. Used in our midsole, we blend our EVA with corn starch to reduce our reliance on petroleum-derived materials.

PLA [sugar derived][28.53%]

PLA [sugar derived]

100% Bio-based. We replace the industry-standard polyester with PLA in a knitted upper construction to ensure a breathable and lightweight feel.

Natural Rubber[12.26%]

Natural Rubber

Renewable & bio-based. We remove synthetic rubber and use this naturally-produced alternative, predominantly derived from the native Brazilian plant Hevea brasiliensis. Increases tear resistance.

Outsole binder[8.18%]

Outsole binder

Derived as a byproduct of our own manufacturing processes. Used in the outsole to create consistency of performance.

PLA [Corn derived][7.43%]

PLA [Corn derived]

100% Bio-based. In our application, this is the alternative to the industry-standard EVA or polyester, used in the midsole and our internal reinforcement.

Organic cotton[4.15%]

Organic cotton

GOTS Certified Organic Cotton emits 94% less greenhouse gases in production compared to conventional cotton.

Biodegradable polyester[3.7%]

Biodegradable polyester

Mixed with corn-derived PLA for lateral and medial reinforcement – a planet-friendly alternative to standard polyester.

Cotton[2.54%]

Cotton

Used as the substrate in our internal reinforcement. Durable. Strong. We are working towards making this organic.

Water-Based Glue[1.55%]

Water-Based Glue

Our alternative to solvent-based adhesives, commonly used in the footwear industry.

ALGAE Bloom™[1.40%]

ALGAE Bloom™

An abundant material – a byproduct of algae biomass. Has natural thermoplastic performance characteristics. Anatomical. Cushioned. Used in the LIGHT’s insole.

Polyester[0.08%]

Polyester

A material we’re seeking to reduce to nil in our products. Used in the stitching thread.

Water-based Ink[0.01%]

Water-based Ink

Inks and glues are critical in our LABS-certified vegan. Less impact than inks commonly used in standard dyes and prints.
