Ethletic Sustainable Sneakers Tip Factory Workers


Ethletic makes socially responsible and environmentally friendly sneakers with its garment factory workers in Pakistan in mind. The German brand partnered with Tip Me to allow its customer to directly tip the people who made their shoes.

Tip Me registers each worker's name, ID card, and phone number to distribute end consumers' tips equally between all people involved in the production. Each of them receives their share via text message on their mobile phone.

Ethletic is proudly the first company to tip garment factory workers in Pakistan. It makes stylish and classic sneakers out of organic cotton and Fair Trade certified materials. All Ethletic products are also cruelty-free.





"Ethletic products are made using only sustainable resources. While the Fairtrade system ensures that producers and manufacturers receive their fair share today, sustainability means that these agricultural areas maintain their economic potential for generations to come. Ethletic pays an additional premium to the official welfare society run by the employees of our production facilities of one US dollar for each pair of shoes sold."

 - Ethletic, a fair, vegan, and sustainable sneaker brand


It's so important to choose environmentally friendly materials that are also certified from third-party organizations when buying apparel and footwear. It guarantees safe working conditions for people involved in the supply chain and protects the planet.

“The people who work for Ethletic aren’t numbers on a balance sheet or a cost factor for us. We know these people. We appreciate them and their skills, their commitment, their history.”

 - Marc Solterbeck, Ethletic Chief Executive Officer
