We recently asked Justin Donoghue, 3rd Planet’s COO, to explain the concept of grounding and to tell us how his company’s Groundals sandals can benefit our health. Now, we’re giving you the chance to test them! 5 lucky FOFs will win and test Groundals ($49.99 with free shipping), in the size and color of their choice.
What on Earth is grounding?
When we walk barefoot, free electrons from the Earth’s surface are transferred into our body through thousands of nerves in our feet. The process, called grounding or earthing, reportedly provides health benefits, including anti-oxidization to improving chronic pain. Since most of us can’t go barefoot all the time, Get Grounded Footwear claims it’s created the next best thing, a line of tong-like sandals called Groundals. Made of 3rd Planet’s proprietary Terra-Technology® (a type of vinyl with a grounding additive), the sandals are contoured for comfort at our feet and provide traction on the soles. How do Groundals work? Justin Donoghue, COO, explains.
