Etnies Plants A Rainforest!

Date: February 16 2011

By: Sneaker Freaker


Etnies are going green with their "Buy A Shoe, Plant A Tree" project in Costa Rica. Through a partnership with the Maleku natives and NPO La Reserva, Etnies will be planting at least 35,000 trees to kickstart a rainforest. For more than 150 years, the Maleku tribe have fought for their land, withered down by cattle farming and a rubber tree war resulting in a massacre that almost wiped them out. You can help Etnies grow this rainforest through buying a pair of eco-friendly Jameson Eco 2 shoes, which uses recycled bike tires and used rubber gloves to create the outsole and plastic bottles for the PET laces! Take a step in the right direction, pick up a pair today and help make this rainforest one tree at a time. Find out more through the vid below..
