Eight Cozy Plastic Free and Sustainable Slippers

With autumn and winter approaching, it’s time to bundle up and pull out your plastic free and sustainable slippers. If you haven’t yet found the perfect pair, now is the perfect time. With so many on the market and so many materials to choose from, it can be hard to know exactly which ones to go with. Here are my top picks.

What goes into plastic-free and eco slippers?

Most low-priced slippers are made of synthetic materials, plastic, and rubber. That means after you’re done with them, they’ll end up in a landfill where they will take years – possibly hundreds of years – to break down.

Sustainable slippers don’t contain plastic or man-made materials. Instead, they’re made from natural materials like wool, cotton, linen, leather, and natural rubber. These materials will decompose much more quickly than plastic and are better for the environment. Plastic free and sustainable slippers are also often made in better working conditions.
