Cariuma’s Timeless And Sustainable Sneakers Might Be My Favorite Shoes Of All Time

 

Featured Image Source

Cariuma first caught my eye with their Reforestation program in Brazil. Both of Cariuma’s founders are from Brazil, and in a pledge to produce sneakers that are also good for the planet, they’re planting a pair of trees for every sneaker purchased! I love that their mission is to create crazy comfy, consciously made sneakers with an increased lifespan that evolve with their customers.

Here are some ways they are empowering sustainable choices:

  • They source premium raw materials like bamboo, rubber, organic cotton, and sugarcane through conscious, certified practices

  • Their shoe boxes double as shipping boxes and they utilize 100% recycled & recyclable paper (certified by the Forest Stewardship Council) to cushion the shoes

  • Their dye chemicals are Bluesign-certified to ensure no hazardous output during the dyeing process, minimizing pollution and reducing water usage
