Joining the many other companies in the fashion and apparel industry working toward more sustainable practices, Vans has introduced a new collection highlighting its commitment to being eco-friendly. Dubbed the Eco Positivity Collection, the company states that this line “spreads awareness about environmental causes and demonstrates a sustainable model for the future.”

The collection incorporates both organic and recycled materials for everything from footwear to apparel. Included in the pack is the Circle Vee shoe, which features a knit upper made with 48% organic cotton and 47% hemp, as well as a drop-in footbed made from at least 70% bio-based foam derived from plant-based oils. The company is also using suppliers that follow proven sustainability practices to source rubber materials for the outsole.

On the apparel side, the Eco Positivity long- and short-sleeve T-shirts feature organic cotton, while the Eco Positivity shacket and shorts are made from organic cotton canvas with printed panels and embroidery. The collection is currently available on its website as well as at Vans retailers, and is part of the company’s larger sustainability initiatives. The company is committed to a lower carbon future through its VR3 commitment by reducing greenhouse emissions, eliminating single-use plastics from its packaging, and reimagining the lifecycle of its products by 2030.
