Made in the USA: More than a motto. A mission.
You see the term everywhere, but what does it really mean? At OKA b. Made in the USA means everything. Our product is manufactured in our 100,000 square foot factory in Buford, GA, just thirty miles from Atlanta. Because we care deeply about our environment, our factory is low-waste and uses recyclable material to make every pair of our signature sandals. Distribution from our on-site facility also helps to reduce our carbon footprint by eliminating steps in the supply chain. In addition, we employ more than 250 hardworking people in both our Atlanta and our Buford locations. We bring jobs to our community and take pride in knowing that we are helping to build and strengthen our nation’s economy.
To us, Made in the USA also means being responsible to our community beyond producing quality products that reduce our carbon footprint. It means using those products to help others in need. In addition to encouraging our own customers to recycle their well-loved OKA b. sandals to our factory where they are ground and turned into new product, OKA b. is proud to partner with the following organizations:
- The American Cancer Society - OKA b. supports the fight against breast cancer by donating to the American Cancer Society as well as sponsoring events such as Relay for Life and The Hope Lodge. Since 2010 our company has donated thousands of shoes to breast cancer patients going through treatment at cancer centers nationwide. OKA b. has also created a limited edition Pink Ribbon Madison slide.
- Soles4Souls – After a devastating earthquake ravaged Haiti in 2010, OKA b. sent a truck load of more than 20,000 pairs of sandals to the people of Haiti. Our newest initiative “Emancipate Your Feet” will enable thousands more to receive a pair of shoes by working with Soles4Souls.
- OKA b. is a family owned company that actively supports and fosters community building in Atlanta and around the globe through various philanthropic initiatives. For additional information about all of our programs and community relations initiatives, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
