10. Vans gives us a creative outlet.
It's not all about the shoes. It's about the way users express themselves. By having art contests, bringing artists to events, and allowing customers to customize their own shoes, Vans gives us a creative outlet. They promote art and individuality.
11. Vans gives back to the community.
Vans has become very eco-friendly. They use packaging that is more sustainable and has eliminated branded hangtags on several key apparel product categories, saving over 400 trees annually. Their shoeboxes are made with 80% post-consumer recycled paper, printed using soy-based inks. They also use The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) which works to reduce the environmental impact of cotton production and improve livelihoods and economic development in cotton producing areas. Since 2014, Vans has been sourcing BCI cotton for both footwear and apparel products. Another thing Vans does is use leather certified by the Leather Working Group (LWG).
Vans has partnered with many nonprofits over the years. Many support environmental organizations and others support creative expression through multiple platforms. Each year Vans hosts community service projects. A few include the Surfrider Foundation and Vans Gives Back days. Each year they support over 100 clean-ups at beaches and skate parks across the country. Finally, each Earth Day, Vans green teams plan the annual Green Sole, Green Clean event that includes a used clothing donation drive, an electronic waste collection, and an office supply swap.
Vans are amazing, end of story.
