About

We all want to look good. But do we want the environment to pay for it? And do we want workers to put their health at risk? When you buy fancy shoes at a low price, these are the problems you are faced with: - People work in unhealthy environments at minimum wages. - Used shoes are difficult to recycle and end up on enormous piles of waste. - A lot of chemicals are used during production, factories create poisonous smog, long transport cycles pollute the air even further. Where some of the big companies trick you with greenwashing, tropas provides a truly sustainable solution: - We produce locally and reduce transport. - We give people meaningful jobs by collaborating with social enterprizes. - We reduce the use of chemicals to an absolute minimum and strive to use no chemicals at all in the future. - We re-use materials and make our shoes easy to disassemble, so they can be re-used and repaired. Did you know tropas is Spanish for troops? tropas warriors (like you) fight for a better world. And better yet, they do it in style. We are happy to welcome you to our ranks. Together we’ll walk the talk and make this planet better. The more troops we gather, the more the shoe industry will follow us. Together we will change the way people think about shoes. We'll better the lives of thousands and thousands of workers, while giving the environment a hand too.
