About Miōn Footwear:
Beyond providing an innovative new product, Miōn is committed to a path toward environmentally sustainable practices. While performance footwear manufacturing is not yet a “green” process, Miōn is making every effort to embed its environmental philosophy into every aspect of its business.

Miōn Footwear will strive to operate as a carbon neutral brand beginning in 2007 and beyond. Miōn is committed to 100% renewable energy, its U.S. distribution center gets 60% of its power from on-site solar panels, it uses recycled materials in all of its packaging and collateral, and Miōn has created and launched the industry's first Ecometrics label designed to provide visibility into the environmental impact of its products.

Miōn's pellet-to-part injection molded EVA manufacturing process generates 90% less EVA waste than the traditional process of compression molding EVA. And Miōn is committed to developing a program that will allow it to use 100% of the EVA production waste in future products.
