Vivo Barefoot is launching a new amphibious shoe called the Ultra III that is made from algae collected from waterways around the world. It is being launched in coordination with Bloom Foam, an eco-crusading team from Mississippi who has created algae-based synthetic foams similar to petrochemical-based materials. These shoes are a double-whammy for the environment because they are super Earth-friendly while replacing a petrochemical alternative. Every pair of the Ultra III will help re-circulate 57 gallons of filtered water back into natural habitats and prevent the equivalent of 40 balloons full of CO2 being released into the Earth’s atmosphere. Pretty cool and definitely worth checking out later this month when they launch for $75/pair.
