The last time we offered Veja’s uber-popular and hard to find eco-sneakers in the Inhabitatshop, they flew out the door faster than we could say “ethically-made.” With summer right around the corner, we figured this was the perfect time to bring back this reader fave. And to make things even more interesting, we’re taking a whopping 50% off all men’s and women’s styles in the Inhabitatshop right now for a limited time only! If you weren’t able to scoop up a pair of these simple and classic sustainable sneaks last time, why not seize take this opportunity to add them to your collection?

Elegant and athletic, Vejas are decidedly stylish on the outside and boast plenty of ethical “sole” on the inside. Made of natural latex rubber, vegetable-tanned leather and organic cotton, and produced in Brazil through cooperatives, these sneakers will have both your feet and conscience walking on air. And since rubber trees are only found in the Amazon, purchasing Vejas supports wild latex production and helps prevent deforestation.

Veja’s sneakers usually sell for over $150+, so don’t miss your chance to score them for half the normal price, for the next few days.

    There is surprisingly little information out there on the “leather as eco-material” debate.

    On the one hand, it is an animal product often tanned with toxic materials. On the other hand, it uses the otherwise unused byproduct of an industry (in this case, the meat/dairy industry) to produce a highly durable and versatile material.

    So it’s a difficult debate as to whether, for example, vegetarians should ever wear leather. When I tried to research it, I only found one vague data point that something like 5-10% of the meat industry’s revenue came from selling hides for leather. In my mind, using this point alone, buying leather does not significantly support an unsustainable industry through buying products sourced from what would otherwise be waste.

    But I could easily see the argument going the other way, so if anyone has any more information, please post.

    i have to echo some of the comments from an earlier posting of these “eco” shoes. leather is not an environmentally friendly or sustainable material, and the association of leather and the word ethical is inappropriate (and almost comical).
