Ethletic is a sustainable German shoe brand. Every step in the Ethletic production process is ethical. The cotton is grown in India and is organically grown and Fairtrade certified, so produced under fair working conditions. The rubber of the shoes is natural rubber and comes from FSC certified forests in Sri Lanka. This means that the forests where the rubber comes from are managed sustainably. The shoes are assembled in Pakistan under fair working conditions in a factory that is also Fairtrade certified. All Ethletic shoes are 100% Peta Approved vegan, so you don't have to worry about animal suffering. Finally, Ethletic gives $ 1 for each pair of shoes that they sell to the Workers Welfare Society at their factory in Sialkot in Pakistan.
