Biological cotton socks from Healthy Seas Socks

Corporate sustainability is
social responsibility

“It might be impossible to create a balance in the world that provides a good living for everyone as a single individual. This must be a dream for everyone. No matter what continent you live in”, says Eric Roosen, owner of Star Sock and initiator of Healthy Seas Socks. “Yet small dreams can contribute to a larger goal. We can all do something small and by that create a more equal world one small step at a time.”
