BYRON 1: Why Buy carbon offsets when you can change your ways for free?

Simple shoes have come up with a way to make things last longer! To reincarnate trash in a new and useful way.  So they came up with ecoSNEAKS - made of materials like recycled car tires, certified organic cotton, and recycled PET(old plastic bottles) a new life as a pair of sneakers!
They collect used car tyres that would normally be sent to a landfill, cut them up, and use them as outsoles on some of their shoes.  
Recycled plastic bottles are collected to create PET (polyethyleneterephthalate)?? yiks!
Organic cotton is probanly the most popular fiber on the planet, when its woven into a textile it is soft and breathable.  
Check out some of theses cool shoes.  Mens and ladies are available, dont forget the kids too!

Cool car tyres are an enormous environmental problem notorious for fires that are difficult to extinguish
