Give Your Mom the Gift of Eco-Friendly Footwear This Mother’s Day
If there’s one thing that can be said about our moms, it’s that they are always worried about taking care of other people - and they’re always on their feet while they do it. This Mother’s Day, spoil your mom with some comfortable, high-quality footwear that’s good for her feet and good for the planet.
Moms Care about Mother Nature, Too
According to the Yale Program on Climate Change Communications, about 26% of adults surveyed feel “alarmed” about the state of our planet and climate change. Women - and namely mothers - were the largest demographic among that 26%. Moms truly care about their children to the point that they fear what might happen in the future if climate change isn’t addressed. As a result, more mothers than ever before are not only shopping for eco-friendly alternatives to the things they use every day, but they’re leading initiatives to fight against climate change, too.
The Mother’s Day Meta is Changing
With so many moms around the world focused on doing their part to save the planet for their kids (and their kids’ kids, too!), giving eco-friendly Mother’s Day gifts is no longer just a trend. In fact, it’s the future. Commercially packaged flowers and boxes of chocolates - once considered staples for Mother’s Day - are now almost frowned upon because of the overuse of plastic packaging. Fortunately, it’s easier than ever to find earth-friendly alternatives to the things your mom really wants and needs.
The Importance of Good Footwear
Taking care of kids, grandkids, and the planet requires a lot of activity, so moms spend a lot of time on their feet every day. As such, they deserve quality footwear that is comfortable, stylish, and better for the environment than the standard brands. The good news is that you can find shoes that fit this bill right now from Zherys, and they come in dozens of different styles and colors to suit your mom’s individual sense of style. If your mom is a go-getter who’s always on the move, it’s hard to go wrong with a pair of classic black sneakers. On the other hand, if you’re trying to encourage your mom to take it easy around the house, a pair of tan slippers with a fluffy foot-hugging lining is the perfect solution.
What Makes Our Footwear Sustainable?
Our footwear is made with a recycled plastic knit upper and recycled rubber outsoles, and it’s packaged in 100% recycled paper. Plastic isn’t going anywhere any time soon, so we work hard to transform the plastic that already exists in the world today into something good - like your mom’s new favorite pair of slippers! Every single link in our supply chain is focused on treating people and the planet the way they deserve to be treated, and we are always working hard to improve our suppliers so that we can provide the most ethical products possible.
Your mom will feel amazing when she slides on her new pair of shoes, but you can both feel good about purchasing a product that is sustainably made from ethically sourced materials. Your mom spends all year taking care of her kids, so this year, make sure to give her a gift from the heart that will serve her well and fight climate change at the same time.
