I haven't really made a habit of promoting products on my blog, so when I do, it has to be something I am pretty much in to, or strikes my fancy. I recently came across the shoe company Ahnu, which means the goddess of balance in Celtic mythology. Struck by their sense of social and ethical responsibility, as well as, making really great shoes, I simply had to try out a pair. Funny thing is, it isn't really the weather for the sandals I went with. No matter, they're perfect for trips to India, and for as soon as the weather turns. Dreaming of Spring! I'm definitely looking forward to it.
Ahnu, has this really great concept of profit and philanthropy, giving over $250,000 to various charities since 2007. They not only give generously, but also, adhere to strict ethical supply chain guidelines. If this is something that holds weight for you, then when in the market for your next pair of shoes maybe give Ahnu a try. I love hearing about companies making great things, and in turn, doing great things too.
