Eco Footing






I heard about Eco Sandlas through Current tv - I figured the sandals would be priced in the hundreds because they are hand made in Nairobi Kenya...by Kenyians! To my happy surprise, the handmade eco sandals are about $29 a pair, eco chic and affordable! The sandals are made from recycled tire threads, uber durable.
As some of you may know...i'm kinda of a do-gooder interested in ending poverty. What attracted me to this project is that the people making these shoes attend classes that teach them how to invest their money in Kenyia - not only are they employed and taught asset development skills, but they end up giving back and building their community. Now, go buy some shoes! I have my eyes on the Safi's...
