With the northern hemisphere encased in deep pre-Christmas snow, with more white stuff forecast, thoughts might turn to keeping ones tootsies warm and snug. One way to do this could be to consider Patagonia Footwear's winter shoes and boots, a number of which are lined with recycled PET fleece. They reckon not only will your pinkies stay cosy, but you'll be keeping two and half PET bottles from going to landfill for each pair of shoes.
To date Patagonia has keep over 100 million bottles out of landfill, which sounds impressive, until you learn that US dumps accumulate 40 million plastic water bottles annually. Patagonia make boots, through moccasins, right down to Mary Janes with these recycled polyester linings. But do remember that Patagonia Say Resole Worn Shoes, Before Buying New.
