Babies and children under the age of two really do not need heavy shoes like you and I. They don't walk for long periods of time, and us parents only place them in safe places to explore. There are a few different leather slippers on the market for children that I'm sure we've all used. But there is now an eco-friendly alternative...ScooterBees.

Made from recycled fibers (both post-industrial and post-consumer sources), ScooterBees are as green as a baby shoe can be! Even the remains from plastic water and soda bottles are put to use to make this shoe. And the little soles of the shoes, which provide anti-slipping and water-resistant benefits, are made with ThermoPlastic Elastomer (TPE). TPE is a degradable material made of carbon and hydrogen...without the use of harmful chemicals in its production...unlike other shoes and socks which use PVC.

The other great feature of these shoes is that they are adjustable to provide your child with the most comfortable fit...and in adjusting them, the shoes tell a story. There are two flaps on the top, each with a different image printed on top. To see the shoes being adjusted and to learn a bit more, watch the video at the end of this post or visit

ScooterBees are available to purchase at where they retail for $37.95...but some are on sale from $14.89! And they SHIP FREE!
