ALLBIRDS started out as an idea for a footwear line that doesn’t use synthetic materials, unlike most traditional footwear. The two Founders, Tim Brown and Joey Zwillinger, were on a mission to use all sustainable materials found in nature. Their mantra was ‘to create better things, in a better way’. ALLBIRDS was created with this philosophy in mind.
ALLBIRDS designs are seamless and simple with no brand logos. They have a 30 day money back guarantee and all their materials are found in nature – no cheap synthetic materials used. They also use all recycled materials in their packaging.
The materials used in ALLBIRDS footwear and apparel is extraordinary and innovative. Every detail has been considered right down to the shoelaces which are made with recycled plastic bottles and to the eyelets that are created due to unique microorganisms that consume plant sugars. Science is sweet!
One of their unique materials called TRENO is made from responsibly sourced eucalyptus tree fibers, recycled nylon and NZ merino wool with strict sustainability standards to protect animals, people and planet. This material uses chitosan fiber which is made from discarded crab shells and is the number two most abundant biopolymer on earth- a sustainable resource found in nature.
SweetFoam, the foam in the footwear, is made from sugarcane from Brazil and is a highly renewable resource, grows quickly and removes carbon from the environment as it grows. The TENCEL lyocell used is another sustainable source that comes from farms in South Africa. It uses 95% less water to grow than traditional cotton thereby reducing its impact on the environment.
ALLBIRDS is a certified B CORP, making it a business that always has the environment in mind in everything they do. They also partner with SOLES4SOULS that donates gently used footwear to communities in need all over the world.
