June Featured Cause - Nicora Johns Factory Project
This month we are thrilled to be donating a portion of each sale to the Nicora Johns Factory Project, an exciting fundraiser by Nicora Johns Shoes.
The USA has lost 70,000 shoe-making jobs since 1979, while 99% of Americans spend $20 billion per year on shoes made by foreign producers (90% of which are not produced sustainably!) and we want to help change this.
With very few shoe manufacturing facilities left in the United States available to emerging shoe companies, they are forced to outsource as the only option. Nicora Johns is raising $220,000 to upgrade their current Los Angeles factory to be able to increase production by 800% while cutting production costs in half, making eco-friendly, vegan, domestic shoes easily available to everyone while also supporting artisans, creating US jobs, and respecting the planet and animals. They are creating a new generation of conscious, collective and enduring style, and we hope you'll want to be a part of this movement.
You can donate directly to their campaign here, check out their gorgeous vegan boots here, or shop all month at Bead & Reel to help bring the shoe industry back to America, making sustainable, cruelty-free, stylish footwear options the easy choice.
