Vans goes green with a Save Our Planet collection

We’ve all been trying to do our bit for the environment recently, but one footwear brand has gone the extra mile.

Vans has just released a Save Our Planet footwear collection, following in the footsteps of other fashion companies shining a spotlight on the environment.

Famous for its footwear, it makes sense that the collection features a range of high-top and regular trainers.

Every piece showcases a world map – be it in colour or in black and white – and has the slogan ‘Save Our Planet’ printed on it in a graffiti style.

The range might be shoe-heavy, but there’s also clothing and accessories.

Choose from a cap, puffer coat, bumbag, backpack and a variety of t-shirts – each with their own unique design.

Prices start at £37 for a backpack, and go to £70 for shoes or just over £100 for the puffer coat.

Currently, the US website has more items in the collection than the UK site – so it’s worth checking both to see the products in all their eco-friendly glory.

The streetwear brand has said it will donate up to £160,000 of the proceeds to Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii – a foundation that works to tackle coastal pollution – but this isn’t the first time the brand has launched a collection for charity.

Last month, Vans released a Breast Cancer Awareness range and gave some of the proceeds to London-based charity CoppaFeel.

The retailer seems to be a fan of launching themed collections, too.

Earlier this year, Vans dropped Harry Potter trainers and shoes inspired by the artwork of legendary artist Frida Kahlo.
