Eco Chick Editor Starre Vartan trying on the (adorable) new Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon Melissas with heart detail (here and below).
Melissa Plastic Dreams Shoes are made from plastic – normally NOT my fave material, but in the case of these fab stompers , I make an exception because: they are long-lasting, waterproof, ridiculously cute, AND the factory where they’re made in Brazil is closed-loop, meaning that NO wastewater or gases from the production process ever makes it into the environment. It’s practically zero-waste.
The company also partners with major designers like architect Zaha Hadid and Vivienne Westwood to create truly memorable designs. I’ve been (very actively) wearing my Vivienne Westwood maryjanes for a year now and they still look new! Also shiny like patent leather, but wears a LOT better.
