Where humor meets reality: Surviving life with a twist!
We know when it comes to sustainable businesses, customers really like to drill down on the details. So, here is the ever growing list of questions we get asked: (Yes, they are all real!)
Why do you look like a rip-off? (And we all know what brand we are talking about!)
Ah, the detectives are on the case!
We're more like their long-lost eco-friendly cousin who spends weekends cleaning up the beach. Sure, we've got that stylish flair and comfort you love, but we've also got a secret weapon up our sleeves—recycled ocean waste!
Our sandals are like super sandals, crafted with love from the very trash that pollutes our oceans. So, we're the cool kid on the block with a green twist. Join the recycling revolution, my friend, and let's make the world a more fashionable and cleaner place!
Why do you collect the trash in thailand?
Alright, buckle up for a wild ride on the carbon footprint express! Picture this: we've got a mission to save the oceans. Now, while it may seem a bit counterintuitive to ship materials from Thailand to Europe, here's the deal: Mother Nature's not exactly a neat freak when it comes to ocean waste, especially flip-flop waste.
Alas, the majority of that oceanic treasure ends up chillin' in the sunny shores of developing countries.
But don't worry, we're not ones to ignore the carbon footprint dance. We're always working on ways to minimize our impact.
can i blame auto-correct for all the spelling mistakes in my order?
Absolutely! Autocorrect is the ultimate scapegoat for any spelling blunders you make.
why are they so expensive if they are made from trash?
Ah, we see you've caught us in the act of "making waste expensive". We take the discarded treasures from the ocean, carefully handpick each wave-worn material, and sprinkle it with some nuoceans magic.
We totally get why you might wonder about the cost. The reality is, creating sustainable products involves meticulous research, development, and sourcing of materials. Actually, processing waste materials are often more costly than using virgin materials.
We work with organisations and partners committed to cleaning up our oceans and support ethical practices and good working conditions. So while they may carry a higher price tag, our recycled Nuos are a statement of style and sustainability.
will my feet sweat since the footbed is made from vegan leather?
Oh, absolutely! Our sandals are basically portable saunas for your feet. We've developed a top-secret technology that guarantees a never-ending sweat party. In fact, we've had some customers claim they achieved their daily hydration goals just by wearing our sandals.
On a serious note, there is not much difference with normal leather.
can i use my sandals for self defense?
We have tried them under various condition, and all we can say is that they are really sturdy. 🤷🏽
