HEXA is committed to sustainable fashion. They love the environment and want to do their part to contribute to promoting ethical, sustainable materials and manufacturing.
They are proud to be a PETA-Approved Vegan company, but they know they can’t sit on their laurels. Being vegan is not enough. Out of the many vegan leathers available, they’re determined to use not only the best material for their products, but also for the environment.
As they endeavor to avoid using animal-based products, they are aware that they often turn to synthetic materials, such as polyurethane, polyester, synthetic rubber, recycled ABS, PVC, TPU, EVA, polystyrene, nylon and poly-viscose, which have their own environmental impacts. To maintain the delicate blend of being vegan and environmentally responsible, HEXA is investigating offset strategies so that they will achieve a neutral to positive impact with every item produced.
In addition to offsetting, they are also always on the lookout for new innovations in sustainable materials and manufacturing methods that they can apply to their supply chain to reduce our environmental footprint immediately. This includes constantly reassessing everything from packaging to logistics, not just manufacturing.
HEXA Shoes dedication to responsible excellence includes elevating local communities. So, they ensure that every supplier, factory, and other service provider they partner with treat their employees with respect and provide safe conditions and fair wages. They cannot claim their products are cruelty-free if their workers are not treated fairly.

This rapidly renewable plant has been naturalized in warm climates all over the world and can grow ten feet in a single season. Using castor oil reduces the need for petroleum in their foam and uses fewer natural resources to produce.
They also use recycled rubber, keeping over 300 metric tons of rubber out of landfills each year. They get eco-friendly, reduced petroleum solutions to create insoles with uncompromised comfort and performance, while dramatically limiting the impact on the planet.
