Poem In Your Pocket Day

We've got a little extra treat for shoppers this Thursday, April 27th! It's National Poem In Your Pocket Day! Every year, on Poem in Your Pocket Day, people celebrate by sharing poetry with others through their schools, workplaces, libraries, parks, and of course on social media with the hashtag #pocketpoem. 

Come in and shop on the 27th and you'll find poems selected by community members and staff  in pockets of items all around the store. Bring in a poem of your own to share or recite one to our staff on this day and you'll receive 10% off one item!

One More Tree

  • Townsend Bertram & Co

EVERY PAIR OF SHOES SOLD MEANS ONE MORE TREE
For every pair of Oboz shoes ever sold, since our very first pair, we’ve planted a
tree. THAT’S A LOT OF TREES! Through our partner, Trees for the Future, we have
planted trees that shade crops, rehabilitate depleted soil, provide food, create
windbreaks, and replenish timber across the globe. Not only are trees planted, but
Trees for the Future also educates communities and farmers on forest
rehabilitation, sustainable farming techniques, and soil conservation practices,
so that the benefits keep growing for the future. (obozfootwear.com/why-oboz/ethics)
