Go Green! From What You Eat to the Shoes on Your Feet.

What does sustainability mean to you? Do you think of big manufacturers finding ways to “go green” and reduce their carbon footprint, or do you think of recycling and reducing waste? Whatever comes to mind, we can all agree that sustainability is important for our planet. 


At SUAVS, we truly value our planet and know that our customers do too. That's why, today, we're sharing our efforts in sustainability and our favourite brands that keep sustainability front of mind.

How SUAVS Does Sustainability

Did you know we make SUAVS with recycled materials? All knits used in our shoes come from post-consumer plastics like water bottles. We also incorporate 100% vegan products throughout our design, even down to the glue. Beyond materials for our shoes, we make a sustained effort to recycle and reduce waste in our manufacturing process. Alongside our efforts in the manufacturing process, we take it one step further by donating all unsold footwear to organizations such as Soles4Souls and LifeWorks.

Andi Bags

Raise your hand if you love totes, bags, and other fun accessories. We love these accessories but what we like even more is when brands incorporate recycled and vegan products into their accessory design and we thought you might like that too. You may also enjoy that these bags are waterproof, easy to wash, and lightweight. 

Cleaning Products


Blueland

Cleaning products can wreak havoc on the earth. Often, we forget that when we use chemicals inside the home, it can still affect the land outside. Not only can chemicals, especially when poured down the drain, poison our drinking water and soil, but the plastic containers they come in fill up the landfill with unnecessary waste The great folks at Blueland knew this, which is why not only is their manufacturing process earth-friendly, so are their products and packaging.  With Blueland products, you get a sturdy reusable container with refillable tablets and powders that you mix with water then use to clean. The packaging your refills are shipped and stored in is also recyclable. 

They hit the trifecta of sustainability!   

Food Brands

There are many ways food brands can help the earth. Whether a brand is all vegan, chooses products from sustainable farmers, or manufacturers their products in a plant runoff sustainable machinery or equipment, they are finding a way to give back.
