Our last blog for our 12 blogs of joy is just as amazing as the rest! As all the companies/foundations/non-profits mentioned before, one thing relates them all - we all want to make the world a better place.
The founder grew up in Southern California, which means ocean holds a special place in their story. While Pontus is a greek deity of the sea, Ponto is also named after our favorite childhood beach in Carlsbad, CA. Ponto donates a portion of proceeds from each purchase to protecting our oceans through their partnership with the Changing Tides Foundation - mentioned in our previous blog.
Made from recycled and bio-based materials, their first silhouette looks like work and wears like leisure. Their sustainable shoe bottoms feature a sugarcane based foam and the uppers are constructed using recycled leather. Combined with their other environmental efforts, these eco-friendly materials are what drive Ponto to be innovators among ethical shoe companies.
Ponto donates 1% of sales to protecting our oceans. They have partnered with 1% For the Planet and The Changing Tides Foundation to help promote gender equity, social justice, and ocean health as well as to remind us of the potential of our personal impact on the world.
