Once upon a time, I paid $50 for a pair of flipflops because they were the greenest pair I could find, proudly constructed out of eco-friendly jute, crepe rubber, and cork by a Cali company called Simple Shoes.

Once upon a time, I paid $60 for a pair of “Stop Global Warming” Simple Shoes slip ons, proud because they were made of hemp, organic cotton, recycled PET, recycled car tire, and 100% post consumer paper pulp. Plus $5 of what I spent went to StopGlobalWarming.org.

The great eco-shoe deals aren’t just for shoes I bought in the past for full price. Eco-thinking shoe company Simple Shoes is having a blowout sale on a whole bunch of designs, including the TOEtally boot made with organic cotton and a whole bunch of sandals too.
