Made from cork, hemp and recycled ocean plastic, Reefer Shoes marches firmly towards making our world a more sustainable place, one sole at a time. Founded by Seb Matheson in 2018, the locally produced footwear brand finds the balance between stylish appeal and environmental friendliness.
Even though the brand is fairly new, it already has a reputation as one of South Africa's most sustainable shoe brands, and looks to expand its range of products, as well as its audience.
Why they were chosen
“ Reefer Shoes is a brand with a mission to be fashionable and more importantly, sustainable. By using rPET, a material made from recycled ocean plastic, along with natural material such as cork and hemp, Reefer creates environmentally safe products while simultaneously cleaning the ocean. ”
