Think green -
Our environmentally friendly approach
The health of the planet Earth is crucial for all of us; there is no planet B where we can escape if we destroy Mother Earth. So we all need to make environmentally friendly decisions, both in our personal lives and in business.
MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE
Follow a plant-based diet as much as you can. It is an easy and delicious way to positively influence the health of our planet, its animals and yourself.
Recycle plastic, cardboard, glass, metal, and all the other recyclable waste material. It is an effective way to take care of the environment.
Fly less and spend more time in the outdoors near where you live. It has been scientifically proven that time regularly spent in nature improves health and well-being effectively.
Think before you buy new items, and only purchase new when it's necessary.
Making a difference through business practices
Made in Finland
We have been importing goods from China and other similar countries for years, but at some point, it started to feel frustrating and not very environmentally friendly. Many brands of hoof boots are made in countries with no recycling procedures or environmental protection laws, not to mention proper working conditions for employees.
In 2011 we decided that we want to make a change with real impact and start manufacturing our hoof boots made in Finland. It took years to find reliable partners to make this dream a reality, but eventually we succeeded, and now Flex Boots are made in Finland! In Finland, we have high standards of environmental protection and recycling practices in place, so waste is reduced significantly and this of course is better for the environment. Metal parts for the boots are made in Europe.
Because we genuinely care about the environment, we recommend that you think before buying a pair of hoof boots. Consider if you really need new boots, and whether you could buy second hand boots that are suitable for your horse.
And if you do decide to buy hoof boots and choose Flex Boots, we think it’s a great decision because all the parts of our boots are individually replaceable. This means that if one part breaks for any reason, you don’t need to buy completely new boots, but can just replace the broken part. And this again reduced waste and is kinder to the environment.
To purchase, contact your nearest retailer, who are happy to help you to select the right size of durable, ecological, comfortable and classy Flex Boots for your horse.
