Sustainable Ethical Slippers 2022

sustainable ethical slippers

I need to buy some slippers and so you’re getting an article about slippers! That’s kinda how this website evolves. They seem to fall into two camps, wool felt ones and recycled plastic ones. I found quite a few makers of the wool felt ones but limited this list to those that seems to be offering a bit more in terms of ethics or sustainability. I generally use looser criteria for Irish companies if there isn’t much choice. I figure supporting an Irish brand at the start of the journey to sustainability might help them move towards it.

I’ve gone in order of pricing, except for Irish brands, which I’ve listed at the top. Also worth noting that unless I specifically mention washability the slippers are not machine or hand washable.

Nothing mentioned in this article has been sponsored. It’s all just my own personal opinion.
