by | July 9, 2019

It is the 50th Lunar Landing anniversary and a vegan company has come up with a really innovative way to commemorate that.

There are light-years ahead until we’ll be actually celebrating the first moon landing anniversary, taking a stroll on the lunar soil. Unlike that dreamy imagination, a vegan shoe company has managed to celebrate the first ever lunar landing, by launching the replica of the astronaut’s boot that John Glenn wore in the first ever event of human stepping on the moon.
