Our Reforestation Program

Restoring our rainforests, one pair at a time.


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.

Here’s what we’re doing to help

The UN has declared 2021-2030 the “Decade on Restoration” and in 2022, ten great initiatives were recognized as World Restoration Flagships, with The Trinational Atlantic Forest Pact being one of them. Together with our partners, our work in the Brazilian Rainforest contributes to the pact through our plant 2 trees initiative. We work with the indigenous people to learn from their wisdom and generate work opportunities while restoring biological diversity in this essential biome. So far we have…
Trees Planted
Native Species
Hectares of Forest in Restoration
