Brazil has dominated the market when it comes to the production of iconic flip flops and sandals, but now there’s a sustainable model gracing boardwalks and beaches the world over, Amazonas Sandals.
Amazonas Sandals, the green sandals made from 100% recycled materials, utilises a rubber, known as Bio Rubber, which is biodegradable within roughly five years if disposed of in the right conditions. Synthetic rubber products take as long as 700 years to decompose.
Amazonas Sandals collection of sustainable sandals are colourful, bright, eclectic and come in a variety of styles, including eco leather, wedge, gladiator as well as standard flip flops. Some of the collection’s stand out features include crystals, exotic prints, tropical prints and fun laces.
Amazonas Sandals is available in womens, mens, kids and babies.
The idea is that once you have finished with the Amazonas Sandals to the point that they are worn out from wear and tear, you can bury them in your garden in order for fast biodegradation to occur. For the biodegradation process to take place, Amazonas Sandals must be in direct contact with water, carbon dioxide, and the earth.
Amazonas Sandals were created exclusively for the international market in 2013. The brand has since grown a loyal following in the USA, France, and Italy.
