Clearwaters is a new environmentally friendly footwear brand designed & developed in the United Kingdom. The shoe industry is one of the largest industrial contributors to climate change & we have made it our mission to revolutionise it.
Our first development is our minimalist inspired slipper, designed to help combat plastic pollution within our oceans. Each component of the slipper has been designed with our planets health in mind & we’ve worked tirelessly to ensure it is accessible to everyone!
Each of our slippers uppers are made from the raw material PET, which derives from the recycling of plastic bottles. In fact between 3-5 recycled plastic bottles are used to produce each pair of slippers.
Our slipper use the highest quality organic cotton for our sock – Not only making the slippers irresistibly soft and cozy, but also environmentally friendly!
Organic cotton is farmed without the use of pesticides, which are responsible for killing wildlife, contaminating rivers & killing a reported 16,000 people per year. Growing cotton organically also helps with soil fertility, which locks CO2 into the soil – Helping to mitigate climate change.
Natural rubber is sustainably farmed with no impact on the environment, whereas synthetic rubber is made using petrochemicals – a by-product of crude oil refining. The process of extracting oil, transporting it, refining it and using the petrochemicals puts all sorts of harmful fumes into the environment.
Risks and challenges
We have been developing the Clearwaters slipper for almost 12 months and now have a complete prototype and a factory lined up for production.
We understand and acknowledge that no project comes without risks and challenges. Despite our planning, there are circumstances that may be out of our control. If we are met with these, we promise to communicate with full transparency to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
