"My optimism wears heavy boots and is loud"

– Henry Rollins

We want to let others know we love what they do.  And what’s a better way to do that, than with our very own Steel Toe Boot.

Every month, we award someone with this seal. Whether this is a truly sustainable business, a supportive and open community or just someone we really like, people who truly kick ass do so with steel toe boots.

If you receive our Steel Toe Boot, proudly display it wherever and whenever, to show that you Do Good Only.

These People Wear Steel Toe Boots

Fraenck

April 2022

We love Fraenck. Why? Why not! You have to put your money where your mouth is, and they do it twice over. It’s easy, going sustainable after making bank with fast fashion. Unlike those who took the easy route, Fraenck started out with their sustainable products right from the start.  Everything they produce is made by hand from waste materials like seatbelts, tarps and even seat covers from old trains.

Not only that, but just like us, they are open to everyone. It doesn’t matter where you’re from and what your background is .The way they tackle multiple problems at once is just amazing! As they say themselves, “creating new opportunities for people and materials”.

Check Fraenck out and see for yourself!

Their goal is that everyone can have healthy plant based food. Not only that, but with Freggies there’s no overly processed junk. You’re getting a healthy, hearty bite made with love. What we love about Mike, the founder and brilliant chef of Freggies, is how he combines flavors from many cultures to create a delicious, nutritious and accessible plant based food for everyone. He’s a fantastic, inclusive collaborator and partner. He truly gives a damn.

Collectief Kapitaal

June 2022

Collectief Kapitaal supports people with financial insecurities, not by telling them how to live, but simply by giving them some extra funds monthly. No ifs or buts. Since September 2021, they were able to support multiple people with €1000 a month, After this successful campaign, they’re getting ready to help 10 more people out with their collective capital, made possible through donations.

We love them because they are giving people the room to make choices that work best for them, not for what a checklist says. That by giving the money directly to the participants, they are building the trust that people know what they need to breathe.
