Eco-conscious E-commerce

The boutique company Erem (eremlife. com) has a team of just eight, but it’s building on an 80-year legacy—founder Noah Swartz is a fourthgene­ration shoe entreprene­ur from the family behind Timberland. He wanted to update the hiking boot specifical­ly for desert conditions, focusing on breathabil­ity and comfort. But he also wanted to update the manufactur­ing model. Erem’s products are “Biocircula­r,” meaning they’re made from recycled and biodegrada­ble materials and that the company will take back wornout pairs and incorporat­e them into new shoes. — SCOTT BAY, ASSISTANT EDITOR
