To clean either the vegan "leather" or "suede" uppers, gently wipe with a damp cloth, being careful not to rub too much. We do not advise the use of any cleaning products, such as soap, polishing, or treatments, which may cause damage to the uppers.
Based on the “cradle to consumer” Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) conducted by SCS Global Services on our behalf, the Charli in Black Capretto-Effect has the following impacts on the environment, and we have, or are working to offset these impacts by 110%:
Furthermore, among other materials, various forms of plastic were used to make our shoes, weighing 378 grams or 13.3 oz in total. Although (a) we have already offset or will be more than offsetting our environmental impacts by 110%, and (b) some of our plastics originate from recycled sources, we acknowledge that plastic is not good for the planet. Thus, we are working with Plastic Bank, to offset the plastic used in the making of this pair of shoes by 110%. To do so, we invested in Social Plastic® Collection Credits equal to 14.7 oz of plastic prevented from entering the ocean and recycled. For more information on how this offset is achieved, please visit Plastic Bank’s website.
