Billie Joe Armstrong has joined the rank of celebs with their very own custom Chuck Taylors, but there’s something a bit more special about his. The Green Day frontman’s 1HUND(RED) #10 Converse sneakers have a hemp upper, and 10% of the net wholesale price will go to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Geneva, Switzerland).

While it’s always great to see celebrities putting their star power to good use and certainly using hemp is groovy, many readers might be aware that Converse is owned by Nike — a company that often relies on sweatshop labor for production.

If you’d like the Chuck Taylor look without the Chuck Taylor cruelty, check out the Autonomie Project – a fair trade fashion company that offers stylish sweatshop-free eco-friendly footwear.
