AllBirds Just Dropped a Truly Sustainable Flip Flop

The new Sugar Zeffer sandals are made primarily from sugar cane, making them better for the environment.

If you’re worried about the impact plastic and rubber flip-flops can have on the environment, you’re in luck. Allbirds, the purveyors of those ultra-comfortable wool sneakers people love to travel in, just dropped a sandal made primarily from sugar cane. The Sugar Zeffer features a sole made from SweetFoam, which the company is billing as the world’s first carbon-negative EVA. (Without turning this into a chemistry lesson, EVA — or Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate — is the material that gives running shoes and other sneakers use to get their signature bounce and comfort.)

The comfortable new flip-flops will set you back $35 (and you can add custom straps for another $15). But that’s a small price to pay for knowing that when you’ve worn them out, they won’t end up doing harm to another living creature.
