FITSUGAR SNEAK PEEK: Baskets Biologique

Hey guys: Get excited, because FitSugar is coming soon! See below for a sneak peek.

The French seem to have a flair for almost everything. (Well, except for that whole perpetual smoking thing.) While not everyone in France necessarily believes in the working-out-for-better-health theory that we Americans like to follow, they do believe in having good sneakers, which is something we can all agree on. The French sneaker maker Veja has created a sneaker you (and Mother Earth) can feel good about, because the sneakers, or baskets as the French call them, are made entirely from organic and natural elements.

The organic cotton is grown in northern Brazil, and the rubber comes from a small co-op in the Amazon. What's more, Veja claims that the sewing and assembly is done at co-ops where the workers rights are valued and respected. Oh la la! You can buy them online at Veja's web site, or if you don't want to pay international shipping costs, check out Scout LA, which also carries them. The boutique is located at 7920 West Third St. in Los Angeles; call (323) 658-8684 for more information.
