A message from the creator of Zherys
No one individual or brand can single-handedly save the planet, but when we all work together for the greater good, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish. Zherys was founded to provide people just like you with access to modern, stylish footwear made from eco-friendly and sustainable materials. Our brand’s mission involves doing the right thing for the Earth and for the people living here.
What Does it Mean to Take Care of Planet Earth?
The team at Zherys believes that taking care of the planet is about much more than simply cutting out single-use plastic and buying products made from recycled materials. Although these things certainly help, it isn’t enough to truly make Earth a better place. We believe that taking care of the planet starts with taking care of the people on it, and that all starts with the people we employ. We are invested in our workers’ rights, and we are constantly reevaluating our suppliers to ensure that every single material is 100% ethical.
Made for Style & Comfort
When buying environmentally-friendly shoes, you don’t have to sacrifice your sense of style or your comfort. Zherys footwear is a product of conscious design, so whether you plan to spend a day at the beach or you have an important meeting at the office, we have the shoe that fits both your feet and the occasion. It is our mission to balance your comfort and style with ethical production practices and sustainable materials to produce footwear that you can feel good about.
The Benefits of Recycled Materials
The materials used in our footwear are all ethically-sourced, sustainable, and environmentally friendly. These materials include a recycled plastic knit upper, recycled rubber outsoles, and even 100% recycled paper packaging. Zherys offers a wide variety of footwear, too, including sandals designed to keep you comfortable in the summertime and even warm, fuzzy slippers for those cold winter mornings. Every single shoe in our shop is made from recycled materials, so when you wear Zherys shoes, you can feel good about your purchase - and your feet will feel good, too!
Are We Plastic Free and Carbon Neutral?
While we would love to say that we are 100% plastic free, the truth is that plastic is a part of life, and it is here to stay. It is our goal to practice circularity in the plastic we consume, so we utilize recycled plastic that might otherwise end up on a beach or in a landfill for hundreds of years in our products. Rather than striving for carbon neutrality, which is virtually impossible when it comes to manufacturing shoes, we work hard to minimize our carbon footprint by sourcing our raw materials in locations that are close to our production facilities. This means less shipping, which drastically reduces the need to ship materials long distances, thereby reducing carbon emissions significantly.
We Care about Our Supply Chain
When we source our raw materials, not just any vendor will do. We look for vendors that treat their employees fairly by paying them a living wage and providing them with the benefits they need to live a happy and successful life. This simply means that through each step of our supply chain, we are focused on the wellbeing of the people who make our products possible. Each vendor providing materials for our manufacturing facilities must also show that they source the raw materials in a sustainable and ethical manner. We are constantly evaluating our vendors in order to continue to provide the most eco-friendly footwear products possible.
The Future is in Your Hands
If we really want to make a difference on our planet, it’s up to each of us to make better choices about the things we buy and use. Zherys was founded to provide consumers just like you with footwear that is comfortable, on trend, and good for the environment, which makes that choice a simple one. By consciously choosing to purchase from brands that are ethical, sustainable, and affordable, you really can change the future one pair of shoes at a time.
Zherys is committed to providing consumers with eco-friendly alternatives to their favorite shoe styles. From the recycled materials to the people who put them all together to create stylish and comfortable footwear, we take pride in our brand - and we hope you will, too.
