TURNING DISCARDED PLASTIC BOTTLES INTO THE FINEST SOCKS AND ACCESSORIES
DeFeet was the first company to begin using the CoolMax EcoMade™ fiber that is made using recycled plastic water bottles. Today, every non-wool sock in the DeFeet line (other than the Thermeator) is made with Coolmax Ecomade. This fact, combined with our more sustainable USA wool and the controls our Made in USA factory affords, gives DeFeet the most environmentally friendly product line we are aware of.
It takes about three recycled water bottles to create a pair of socks. Each day, millions of these bottles are discarded around the world. The time has passed when a company could say "we are green, buy from us" and expect consumers to respond accordingly. Being a responsible manufacturer is expected. Our goal is to enlighten and inform our customers so they may influence others.
