The cotton fabric used in these sneakers is both GOTS and Fairtrade certified. GOTS is the strictest certification for organic materials used on the market today. The certification includes rigid controls of, for example, chemical use, salaries and working conditions. The Fairtrade certification ensures, among other things, that the cotton farmers who produce the cotton used to make the fabric for these shoes have fair working- and living conditions. The farmers have a right to be paid a minimum price for their cotton even if the price on the global market varies.
The rubber used in these shoes is FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council) and the shoes are also 100 % vegan. The FSC certification ensures that the rubber used in both the inner and outer sole is made of natural rubber deriving from sustainable and non-threatened rubber plantations. The fact that the shoes are 100 % vegan means that no fats, oils, glue or dyes deriving from the animal kingdom are used in the manufacturing process. The rubber producers and the factories that sew and assemble the shoes are also part of a unique social fair trade system that ensures fair working conditions and social justice for the employees. This system gives the employees similar rights and premiums as the Fairtrade certification for cotton.
The independent certifications presented above functions as an extra safety and warranty that Mini Rodini’s shoes are both sustainably and ethically produced.
