Yes! Our Archies Thongs are 100% vegan friendly. They are made from thermoplastic foam that contains no animal products or derivatives. There is also no testing on animals whatsoever.
We deal with world-class manufacturers who operate under the most stringent quality control standards. They also manufacture footwear for the big brands and do not use any materials that are toxic or tested on animals. They have strict environmental and HR policies in place.
Our manufacturing partner recycles all waste (all cardboard, plastic, and excess footwear material) and, as a company, we also recycle all cardboard, paper, and plastic and use minimal packaging.
With regards to biodegradable materials, we are researching and testing various biodegradable materials that could potentially be used on our thongs and our manufacturer is one of the world leaders in this field.
Although our thongs are not yet made from biodegradable material, we are working towards this goal.
We dispose of any lightly used or damaged stock by partnering with companies such as Soul4Souls, an organization that donates lightly worn shoes to communities of need.
