Restoring our rainforests, one pair at a time.
To Our Community
To Our Community,
Restoring our environment is about more than just doing what we think is right, it is an integral part of our mission and value system as a company.
Fast fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world, and we were not proud of what we experienced during our time working for big footwear companies. That’s why we set out to do things differently with CARIUMA.
We’re making sneakers in a way that’s better for you and the planet. Pair by pair, we’re doing our part to rebuild our rainforests through our ecological restoration program. We chose to start in Brazil, our home country, where we can amplify our impact given our deep roots. Together, we have already planted over 2 million trees, and it’s just the beginning.
We work closely with the indigenous communities local to the area, following their guidance on how to tend to the land and best support regrowth and restoration, improve seed storage efficiency and replanting methods that mitigate risk and preserve biodiversity.
Ecological restoration is urgent and a foundational piece of mitigating the impact we have already made on our environment. As a certified B Corp organization, we are leading by example in a broader effort to reshape our industry and our planet for good.
Thank you for being on this journey with us.
