We love when brands put sustainability as a top priority, so we’re extra obsessed with this one. Allbirds is a footwear and lifestyle brand that you need to have on your radar.
Allbirds just opened its second Canadian location right in Yorkdale Shopping Centre (which follows the store in Vancouver) making this its first-ever Toronto location.
Co-founded in 2016 by Tim Brown, the brand is dedicated to making sustainable products using supernatural materials, designed for everyday life. Its mission is to prove that comfort, design, and sustainability aren’t mutually exclusive.
Tim speaks about the expansion saying, “We are excited to offer a new way for our Toronto customers to experience Allbirds —a city that melds so well with the Allbirds lifestyle – casual, comfortable, and an epicenter for health and wellness.”
Allbirds offers quite a range of sneakers, so you can find exactly what you’re looking for, whether you’re a runner or just searching for a go-to shoe, the brand has you covered.
It uses materials like sugarcane, wool, and eucalyptus to keep production emissions low, without sacrificing quality and style.
Plus, it recently launched an activewear line that’s made out of sustainably sourced materials as well. And let us tell you, the apparel is so sleek and comfortable!
Aside from the footwear and clothing, the store design is eco-conscious too. The service desk is constructed using locally sourced renewable maple plywood as well as featuring a table surface made using recycled paper!
A very interesting concept you’ll find when browsing around the store is that the carbon footprint of each product is clearly displayed right on it. Tim explained it as a nutrition label but for the shoe—you can see the exact carbon impact that the product has. How cool is that?
