We have a collaboration with Trees for the Future to plant ten trees for every purchased pair of shoes. We have chosen to work with this organisation as they are not ‘just’ planting trees but while doing this but helping people in need in Africa.
They train farmers over a four-year period to sustainably revitalize their land. They provide all of the training, seeds, tools, and materials. The farmers come prepared with their own land and ready to change their family’s life.
Through there Forest Garden Approach, farmers plant thousands of trees that protect and bring nutrients back to the soil. This helps farmers grow a variety of fruits and vegetables. Forest Garden farmers gain increases in income and food security, even in the first year.
Their impact is big, they have planted over 180 million tree and helped over 100.000 farmers in need.
We are happy to support this company by planting ten trees for every shoe we sell.
