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)
