There goes PAS again, doing right by the planet and sneakerheads alike. etnies brass Pierre Andre's latest offering is a sustainable collection called Sacre Green.

SACRE GREEN, the first 100% etnies carbon neutral sneaker collection will make its debut at colette the entire month of June in honor of World Environmental Day. Inspired and created from Pierre Andre Senizergues’ pro model shoe the Senix, the collection features five green themes that tell the story of Senizergues’ green journey. An advocate of the environment for more than a decade, Senizergues’ SACRE GREEN shoe collection is made from sustainable materials and housed in a shoe box that can be planted from the seeds interlaced in the material. The carbon neutral sneaker is a first of its kind for etnies and ties into Senizergues’ commitment of having a carbon neutral company by 2020.

Each SACRE GREEN shoe features recyclable materials including organic hemp, bamboo and textiles with the use of soy-based inks, water-based glue, PET recycled laces and recycled rubber. All of the leather in the shoes is vegetable tanned, VOC free and constructed with organic cotton stitching. The collection is unique in depicting Senizergues’ environmental influences that include handcrafted colorful patchwork, Native American inspired design and crisp patent leather in a bed of grass print. Only 12 shoes will be made of each style and will be sold exclusively at colette.

To offset the carbon output in production, Senizergues has committed to planting trees in Costa Rica through the La Reserva Forest Foundation, an organization dedicated to lightening our planet’s carbon footprint and believes we are all stewards of the natural world. Each tree planted in Costa Rica for SACRE GREEN will reduce 50lbs of CO2 per tree annually.

After meeting with Costa Rica’s president and showing the film, The 11th Hour, an environmental documentary that Senizergues executive produced with Leonardo DiCaprio, he learned of their aggressive goal of becoming a carbon neutral country by 2021. Senizergues pushed forward with SACRE GREEN and his carbon neutral commitment inspired by their ambition and realizing the future of fashion and footwear is green.

  3. As a huge fan of both Etnies and the Earth I'm REALLY glad to learn about this. I'm a bit disappointed however that the only way I found out about this was by googling "etnies environmental shoes", and also that I cant easily find these in any of my favorite online retailers shops (most specifically Zappos). Thanks for taking the initiative and keep pushin it Etnies! ...umm wait I just read this part: "Only 12 shoes will be made of each style and will be sold exclusively at colette." WTF?!?!?!?

  4. No seriously though, W - T - F ?! This looks like hardcore greenwashing. Environmental friendliness is for everybody, not just the few that can afford it. There are plenty of earthy friendly shoes out their, but few with the value and durability I enjoy with etnies, please bring affordable, long-lasting, environmentally friendly shoes to the the everyday person.
