Cariuma has announced that, in addition to its pair-for-pair Reforestation Program, the brand has made an Earth Month commitment to plant not just two, but ten trees per pair sold through April 30. The choices you make today plant the seeds of the future, literally, so take advantage of this program to support the sustainable skate shoe movement.
Cariuma’s Catiba Pro skate shoes are handmade for ultimate comfort and board feel, and crafted from planet-friendly materials, down to the reinforced flick point, so you can skate hard while keeping your footprint light. From heavy gaps to big stair sets, their memory foam insoles mimic the anatomy of the foot and provide super cushioning and impact protection.
Cariuma’s Ecological Reforestation Program works to replant the Brazilian rainforest, where sadly twenty-percent of the forest floor is gone.
In order to mimic the Brazilian rainforest’s natural growth and diversity, they plant a variety of native species of trees including Jacaranda, Pau-brasil-branco, Peroba, Caroba, and the Murici-da-mata. These trees naturally protect sixty-percent of Brazil’s endangered species of animals and plants, and they also remove CO2 from the air.
