Impact and Commitment

IMPACT AND COMMITMENt

UN Sustainable Development Goals

 Alterre are committed to Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production across their business operations. The brand consciously uses sustainable materials in order to lower their impact on the planet and ecosystems. In addition, Alterre innately promotes less waste through the versatile design of their shoes which can be used and adapted for multiple functions and occasions.

Alterre have participated in ‘The Conscious Fashion Campaign’ in collaboration with the United Nations Office for Partnerships. The initiative aims to educate and mobilise the fashion sector to action solutions for social, economic and environmental change and help deliver the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

Conscious Design and Packaging

 Alterre considers the social and environmental impact of their production when designing their products. The innovative design of interchangeable shoe straps provides longevity and flexibility for the wearer and reduces wastage. All shoes incorporate recycled materials and elements that are locally sourced in order to reduce their footprint and help support the local community.

Alterre works with their suppliers to limit plastic packaging where possible and have cut out 90% of single use plastic. They continuously strive to further reduce plastic throughout their supply chain through seeking out innovative alternatives.

Philanthropy

 Giving back to local communities is an important principle of Alterre and both founders actively support female empowerment within the community. Alterre donates 5% of their profits to Restore NYC charity, a long-term rehabilitation centre for victims of trafficking within the United States. In addition, they donate returned shoes to Soles4Souls, a non-profit who collect unwanted shoes and clothing, distributing it to people in need across the world, keeping them from going to waste.
