HISTORY

Since introducing the world's first foam-soled, soft, washable slipper in 1947, our product focus and operating model have evolved beyond our footwear roots to serve the ever-changing accessories marketplace. That evolution was never more apparent than during fiscal 2011. We literally transformed our business from a one-dimensional, modest-growth slipper company into a multi-dimensional, growing provider of functional, fashionable accessory products with the acquisitions of two successful accessories businesses - Foot Petals, Inc. of Long Beach, California, and baggallini, Inc. of Portland, Oregon.

CHARITABLE GIVING

RG Barry believes that it is the responsibility of a good corporate citizen to support the communities in which it lives and works. Toward that end, the Company's Board of Directors annually sets aside a portion of pre-tax net profit for use in supporting various charitable and community endeavors.

Distribution of the Corporation's charitable gifts is controlled by an 8-member committee of RG Barry team members selected annually from throughout the Corporation.

Corporate Sustainability

CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY

RG Barry works to promote sustainable, environmentally healthy business practices by identifying and sharing practical, innovative conservation methods; adopting appropriate environmental policies; and encouraging all of it's team members, vendors and customers to incorporate green practices into their lives.

We consider the environment to include every social, natural and cultural surrounding that impacts the health of our minds, bodies and spirits. We promote sustainable business practices by identifying and sharing innovative methods, offering policy recommendations, and encouraging team members to incorporate green practices wherever possible.

Through recommendations of the ENERGY STAR program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, we have taken steps such as: replacing light bulbs at our facilities with more efficient bulbs that use half the energy; installing motion detectors to control room lighting; installing new, energy-saving HVAC and hot water units; and replacing computers with more energy-efficient models.

We also encourage our suppliers to: reduce excess packaging and to use recycled, nontoxic materials; to follow guidelines that will prevent the future depletion of natural resources; and to ensure the use of safe materials in manufacturing. The use of any restricted substance/material by a supplier will result in immediate termination of its business with RG Barry.
