We chose recycled rubber as the base material for our innovative outsoles with the dual purpose of flexibility and durability in mind. This second-life material avoids the need for further rubber farming, which often involves environmentally damaging forest clearance.
TreEVA is an ultra-comfortable material pioneered by Gumbies in our pursuit of authentic feel-good footwear. It is formed from a combination of EVA and wood chippings, a natural material that reduces the need for man-made plastics.

With each purchase of Gumbies flip-flops, a mangrove tree is planted in Mozambique, Madagascar or Kenya. Mangrove trees specifically are enriching to the environment due to their ability to store up to 4 times the amount of carbon of other trees.
