Payless will fight the good fight in April 2009, when they launch a green and affordable collection of footwear designed by Discovery Network's Summer Rayne Oakes. "Not only will the shoes use sustainable and eco-friendly materials such as organic cottons and linen, natural hemp and recycled outsoles — but they’ll also average under $30. That’s an incredible accomplishment for an industry where green can mean spending more at checkout." The line will initially launch at 500 stores, after which eco-practices will be included in manufacturing other Payless product. Watch out, Natalie Portman! [Ecorazzi]
