Treehugger.com recent post showcases Redemption thong by Reef. The new thong is made from nontoxic materials and designed toward zero waste. The NWS Sandal highlights the ingenuity of eco-fashion designers and producers. Every element from conception to bulk production encapsulates sustainability principles. For example, stitching, threads, and upper-liner of the sandals are made from recycled water bottles(PET). The company also made the decision to use individual molds to make the soles(30% recycle rubber), instead of a blocker sheet which reduces the waste to approximately 1%.
