So this seemed like too good a story to pass up. In 1991 Julie Lewis started Deja Shoe, making shoes with recycled and sustainable materials. She was donating 5% of profits to conservation non-profits waaaaaay before it was cool. I love the long history of doing the right thing.
There has been an 18 year hiatus, but Deja Shoe is back. For now it least, it seems that they are only offering a sandal, but since I wear sandals when ever possible this is still a great thing!
