Overall B Impact Scoreinfo_outline


The B Impact Scores are being compared against all businesses that have completed the B Impact Assessment

Allbirds is dedicated to making the most sustainable footwear they can - shoes people feel good in and good about - using the world’s best natural materials.

Allbirds hopes to disrupt the footwear industry by using the world’s best natural materials rather than relying on synthetics. They believe in progress over perfection, and are constantly experimenting with new materials, manufacturing methods and environmentally-minded partners to help further their mission.

Materials Matter: The merino wool used in their shoes is ZQ-certified, which means it meets stringent standards of sustainable farming and animal welfare. Their superfine merino wool also requires 60% less energy to produce than typical synthetic materials used in shoes.

No Unnecessary Details: Not only are the shoes themselves distilled down to their simplest form, but Allbirds’s patent pending packaging is a revolutionary shoe box and shipper in one - using 40% less materials than traditional e-commerce shoe packaging.

Thoughtful Redistribution: Rather than contributing to landfill, Allbirds is committed to giving returned shoes new life and helping communities in need thrive through their partnership with Soles4Souls.
