Groundhog Footwear - Reducing The Global Footprint

Groundhog has a goal of "reducing our global footprint" with their environmentally friendly footwear. This is achieved through all aspects of the company: recycled and sustainable materials, construction, packaging, shipping, and business practices.

- Buckles, buttons and ornaments are made from coconut shells, wood and tree resins.
- Soles made with natural cork mixed with natural latex, not only organic but also biodegradable.
- All packaging is made from recycled fibers including tissue wrap and no bleach was used.
- Leather uppers are semi-vegetable oil tanned reducing the chemical content which is better for the environment.
