Best known as a supplier of quality long-lasting footwear, Clarks has actually been sustainable since its creation almost 200 years ago – the first pairs of shoes were crafted from offcuts by tradesmen from the local community.  

Today, its sustainable foundations remain through conscientious, inclusive, and responsible practices. Clarks’ use of quality materials and workmanship mean their shoes are durable which removes the need to replace them for a long time, which in turn reduces waste. All shoeboxes are recycled and recyclable, and the Origins range is a fully circular shoe collection.  

Pop in and try a sustainable piece of footwear at any time – Clarks shoes aren’t just for Christmas…
