THE ETHICS

The Brand Story

Flamingos Life are Spanish trainer makers. With a sunset logo inspired by their home in Gran Alacant, these sneakers give off the sort of nonchalant vibe you get from a place that’s always sunny. 


In August 2018, Flamingos Life made a bold decision. Being aware of the lack of transparency in the fashion industry they decided to move production from Asia, to their home of Spain. They now manufacture their products exclusively in family-owned factories with over 40 years of experience in the footwear sector. 


Each shoe collection is associated with a specific environmental project. They have paired up with Eden Reforestation Projects and Waste Free Oceans so that your purchase will contribute to reforesting areas of Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Ethiopia and Indonesia, or collecting debris from our plastic-laden oceans. 


This is a brand who go the extra mile. Ambitious and hopeful – not just looking to make an environmentally-friendly sneaker – they want their business to become a solution to some of the environmental crises we’re facing. 

Organic Cotton & Recycled Plastic Bottles

Flamingos' Life organic cotton is currently grown in Pakistan and certified by GOTS. Organic cotton is better for the soil, the farmers and their families due to the damage that can be caused by fertilisers in conventional cotton production.

Flamingos' Life use recycled plastic bottles and industrial recycled plastics to make their shoes, this is produced in Spain and the fabric is certified by Global Recycling Standard. For every pair of shoes you buy you recycle two plastic bottles.

The Factory

In August 2018 Flamingos' Life switched from making their shoes in Asia to Spain. Being aware of the environmental crisis and the lack of transparency in the fashion industry they decided to start the journey of becoming a sustainable and transparent brand. They returned to Spain, reducing their carbon footprint and gaining more control over the manufacturing process.

They visit their family owned factories - which are located 15km from their office in Spain - once a week to manage orders and monitor the conditions of the workers. The factories have more than 40 years experience in the footwear industry.Workers get paid around 1200 euros per month, which is above the Spanish minimum wage.

This is Antonio. With more than 40 years of experience working in one of Flamingos' Life factories, Fedala Export, based in Elche. In this photo, Antonio is cutting the textile pieces to make their shoes.

Where Flamingos' Life can improve?
