boys and girls pink and blue plastic crocs on sunny beach

Keep away, crock Crocs

I’m not a fan at all of the multi-coloured foam resin shoes that are no doubt filling up landfills and adding to ocean pollution worldwide since their launch in 2002. However, I’m even more concerned about the plastic knock-offs that can contain a frightening number of carcinogenic substances such as solvents, heavy metals and polycyclic aromatic carbons that can be absorbed through your feet and can contribute towards cancer and other health problems.

Do your research before buying knock offs, and be particularly careful where Black Croc copies are concerned, they were shown to contain a higher level of carcinogens according to a German study. For more information on what to avoid and why follow this link.
