Brands Using Fashion To Change Lives
Anyone that knows me will tell you that I loathe rubber thong flip flops. I cannot understand this country’s obsession with water shoes. Well, that’s what they are. Flip flops were created for the pool and the beach. Not to be worn with every single outfit in your closet. Ugh. I digress. But since it’s beach season, I wanted to give you another option for the dredded thong flip flop. I am not opposed to cute alternatives to the plastic rubber thong flip flops. Actually, I implore footwear brands to devise creative and new designs for the “anti flip flop”. Luckily, there is a great option available. There’s nothing better than stylish sandals made by a company that is using fashion to change lives.
That socially good fashion brand is FLEEPS. FLEEPS are cute and colorful sandals that have such a unique design. These darlings have an adjustable cross-ankle strap, smooth-finish toe thong and a lightweight shock-absorbent sole, perfect for perusing all of the great boardwalk shops or just taking a stroll. FLEEPS are available in a bunch of colors so you can buy several pairs to go with just about anything in your spring/summer vacation wardrobe.
FLEEPS was founded in 2015 by Kael Robinson, global good curator, is dedicated to creating a sustainable yet stylish product that changes the course of poverty through education. Their main goal is to sell over one million pairs so that they can send over 10,000 girls to school by 2019. Ten percent of every pair of FLEEPS sold goes to the FLEEPS Foundation providing funding to its non-profit partners committed to the education of girls, including Shining Hope for Communities and Starfish Impact. Now this is a fabulous way to look chic and use fashion to change lives. Get your pair here, FLEEPS.
