With the public’s burgeoning concern about companies and their impact on the environment, Reebok is showing the public that their listening. They’re introducing the world’s first plant-based performance shoe, the Forever Floatride GROW. It’s made from plants, eliminating the need to produce petroleum-based plastics for their footwear. And seeing as how specialized a performance-based sneaker needs to be to meet tough physical requirements, it’s quite a feat that they’ve managed to pull it off.
During the last few decades, the public has been becoming increasingly aware of the environmental and ethical concerns of wearing fur. Thankfully, lots of animal-friendly fur substitutes are popping up all over the place. In a monumental move a few months ago, Queen Elizabeth announced that she will stop wearing fur. Awesome! One decision by one person can often go a long way, and we hope this is the case here.
An exciting new law is being implemented in the state of California. It’s a bill that strictly prohibits the selling of fur products and applies to coats and handbags alike. While bans have been springing up in various cities, namely Los Angeles, Berkeley, and San Francisco, California’s managed to get there first. The selling, trading, displaying, or donating of fur will officially become an illegal practice in the state as of the start of 2023 – hooray! There are exceptions, however, to be aware of.
