Why Does Barefoot Is Legal.org Exist?
Most people in the Western world believe there are laws regarding driving a car, going into a store, or eating in public barefoot. There is a social stigma with being seen without shoes on. Barefoot Is Legal (BIL) hopes to change that.
Our goal and Mission statement
The Barefoot Is Legal community is about making the barefoot lifestyle more acceptable. This will be done by sharing with the public that going barefoot while driving, going into a store, or eating in public is not a crime, a Health Department violation, or a liability. The group will also share with businesses that allowing their office employees to wear open shoes and even going barefoot within their working area is healthy. Businesses will even be able to save a little bit on health care costs by not mandating closed shoes with heels. Stores and businesses are losing money to law suites from people getting injured from being told to wear footwear. We want to educate people that being healthy should be accepted and embraced.
