The Sugarcloud Slide’s upper is adorned with the Ugg logo and made from 100 percent Tencel lyocell terry plush, backed with recycled polyester. The same eco-friendly materials line the slide, while a SugarSole midsole derived from renewable, fast-growing sugarcane adds extra comfort. The molded rubber outsole contains 50 percent recycled rubber, making these platform slip-ons even kinder to the planet. Available in dragon fruit, sunny yellow, and black colors, these slides are versatile and can be worn with or without socks, pairing effortlessly with dresses or Jeans.
Ugg is committed to promoting sustainability and reducing its ecological footprint. The Sugarcloud Slide is made with at least 50 percent recycled, renewable, regenerated, or certified natural materials by weight. By utilizing SugarSole™ foam, Ugg can lessen its reliance on petroleum-based ethylene while absorbing 1.6 pounds of CO2 for each pound of ethylene replaced, further benefiting the environment.
Since 1970, Earth Day has been a global event where people come together to showcase their dedication to environmental protection. The fashion industry plays a crucial role in Earth Day, as it significantly impacts the environment. The Sugarcloud Slide is a perfect example of how fashion brands can contribute to a greener future.
So why not make a stylish and eco-friendly statement with Ugg’s Sugarcloud Slide? Not only will you look fabulous, but you’ll also be doing your part in protecting our planet. As Earth Day approaches, remember that each small step we take towards sustainability counts, and choosing eco-friendly fashion is a step in the right direction. Happy shopping, and let’s continue to make our world a greener place!
If you have the choice, why not choose vegan? Large fashion brands are making it easier for consumers to choose ethical options. While some may argue that it’s difficult to shop sustainably when buying new clothes, we appreciate the steps these brands have taken. Hopefully, at some point, vegan shoes will become the norm when it comes to leather sneakers and not just another way to sell more products.
