By designing more and more sustainable products, with a goal of having at least half our line use recycled content and materials by 2021.
Reducing our environmental impact
We are continuing to update our practices and become more environmentally sound and sustainable. These are just some of the practices we’ve put in place.
We switched our packaging to FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved materials that come from sustainably managed forests.
We now use recycled ocean plastics materials in our textile linings.
We work with Gold-rated leather tanneries that can trace the source of their hides—so we don’t use materials from ranches that don’t cut down rainforests.
We use recycled content for our laces (like ocean plastics!)
Our Factory Standards
We ensure our factories do not employ children, do not force people to work in dangerous conditions and pay workers a living wage.
Sustainability is about more than just caring for the environment
We work with and give back to multiple charities and organizations as a continued sense of social responsibility.
Heal the Bay
Beach cleanups are just the beginning. Heal the Bay works to mobilize LA’s diverse communities to protect the coastline, restore waterways and speak out for smart water policy. Proceeds from our Heal the Bay collection go to fund this initiative.
We partnered with NO H8 to support their mission to promote marriage, gender and human equality for everyone, and to stand against bullying and discrimination. Our rainbow-colored Classic celebrates Pride, with proceeds going toward this organization.
We believe strongly that community starts at home. We give paid time off to all K-Swiss employees to volunteer in their communities.
