Besides caring about your feet, we care about the people who make the things that go on your feet. That’s why we chose our manufacturing partners in crime carefully.
We’re the kinda footwear brand that cares about peeps, plants, and pets. That’s why besides being 100% vegan, we’re also 100% serious about ethical working standards.
Each pair of TWOOBS is handmade in Dongguan Senfan Shoes Technology Co., Ltd., a factory with 42 employees that specialises in footwear production. Shoemakers get paid a living wage and double for overtime.
They also receive social insurance, meals and childcare as well as optional room and board.
Now that’s our kinda factory.
We’re putting our feet down when it comes to carbon. We’ve had enough, and so has the planet. That’s why we offset 100% of our emissions to make our production process carbon neutral.
How? 90% of our suppliers are located within the Dongguan area — which is kinda the same size as Darwin. That means, most of our shoe components are only a 26 minute drive, or three hour and one minute walk, or one hop, skip, and a jump away from our factory. Less travel, less carbon. Simples.
We put our offsets towards the panda-protecting WWF Mamize Firewood-Saving Cookstoves Project. The project gives families in China’s Sichuan Province higher-efficiency stoves to use for cooking stuff like food and warming stuff like feet. By replacing inefficient stoves, indoor air pollution and the amount of wood required for fuel is cut way back.
Less wood being cut down means bigger forests for big pandas. Paws for applause.
