      Estefania Alamo says she wants people to live a simple lifestyle. And
      the first steps down that path, she says, should be taken in
      eco-friendly vegan shoes.

      The 23-year-old Boca Raton resident, along with her father, has
      launched an online crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter to produce
      2,000 eco-friendly shoes without using animal products.

      On Kickstarter.com, innovators — from musicians to designers to tech
      startups — present business ideas and request financial backing from
      the online community. Alamo's Kickstarter funding goal is $27,000 to
      get her shoe venture going.

      The trendy, colorful footwear will be made out of canvas, and only
      environmentally friendly water-based glue will be used. No animal
      products of any kind will be used either, Alamo said. The soles will
      include an ethylene vinyl acetate material, a foam-like product that
      is also eco-friendly and makes the shoes lightweight to feel like
      you're walking barefoot, she said.
