Crocs pledges to become a “zero-net” company by end of 2030

Crocs: cop or drop? We say, cop. Crocs emerged as one of the most unexpected yet hottest shoes of the summer after the brand’s signature foam-plastic footwear was spotted on the feet of Justin Bieber, Post Malone, Nicki Minaj and other notable celebrities. In a bid to become more sustainable as a company, the brand announced that it will commit itself to "remove all animal products from its collections.” It will also work towards cutting its carbon emissions and become a zero-net company by 2030. Is this a sign for us to add Crocs to our main footwear rotation? We believe so!
