Sustainable Journey

Inspired by the pastoral countryside, Lakeland footwear is the epitome of British culture and heritage. Influenced by the lifestyles of the agricultural and equestrian communities, Lakeland rubber wellingtons boots are created to withstand the rugged terrains of the rolling hills of the UK and beyond. At the centre of its focus is the classic British inspired design combined with meeting the expectations of the adventurer who sports them, be it at the farmyard or festival.

As a result of the collaboration between our R&D and design teams, Lakeland footwear was conceptualized and created using FSC certified natural rubber from the island of Sri Lanka. FSC certification guarantees that the rubber is sourced from plantations that adhere to strict guidelines that make re-forestation and social responsibility at the core of their business. Additionally, it provides a consistent source of income to the rural rubber farming communities of Sri Lanka.

Sustainable footwear from Lakeland

And thus was created the ‘Lakeland Wellie’ – designed and hand crafted in Sri Lanka with meticulous attention to detail. Organic, sustainable and natural, these boots are crafted to be stylish and long-lasting – thereby reducing their carbon footprint. Lakeland boots are made for everyone who enjoys the outdoors and are guaranteed to keep your feet comfortable, safe, warm and dry.

As a modern and innovative brand, we at Lakeland are committed to creating footwear that leaves a minimal carbon footprint on the environment.

Pollution

The Environment

The shoe manufacturing industry produces large amounts of greenhouse gasses that contribute to the already grave effects of climate change and global warming. Conventional shoes are made out of many different kinds of synthetic materials that make them non-durable, non-biodegradable and extremely hard to recycle. Components break down very slowly, releasing toxins, chemicals and fossil fuels into our surrounding environment, including our already vulnerable oceans.

The Lakeland team was inspired to create a positive change in the world and focused on using plant based, renewable resources for their raw material.

Why is Lakeland footwear good for your feet and for our planet?
