11. Vans gives back as much as it takes.
Vans has become highly eco-friendly. They use packaging that is more sustainable and has eliminated branded hangtags on several key apparel product sections, saving more than 400 trees annually. Their shoeboxes are made with 80% post-consumer recycled paper, printed with soy-based inks. They also use The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) which works to reduce the environmental effect of cotton production and improve livelihoods and economic development in cotton manufacturing areas. Since 2014, Vanshas been sourcing BCI cotton for both footwear and apparel products. Another thing Vans do is they use leather certified by the Leather Working Group (LWG).
Vans has partnered with many charities over the years. Many support environmental organizations and others support artistic expression through multiple platforms. Each year Vans hosts community service projects. A few include the Surfrider Foundation and Vans Gives Back days. Every year they support over 100 clean-ups at beaches and skate parks across the nation. Finally, each Earth Day, Vans green teams plan the annual Green Sole, Green Clean event that hosts a used clothing donation drive, an electronic waste collection, and an office supply swap.
Vans are amazing, end of story.
