Etnies was founded by skater Piere Andre Senizergues and brings innovative, stylish, comfortable and protective footwear for men and women. An enviable deed in itself, but to top that off Etnies has also found the ecological way to the top. With their 'Buy a shoe, Plant a tree'-project.
This project guarantees that for every pair of shoes sold a tree will be planted in Costa Rica or Brazil. Has it made headway yet? Last year they planted 500,000 trees in Costa Rica alone. This year they are aiming for a million!
Etnies has 2 kinds of shoes in their ecological collection:
The shoes are made of organic cotton, recycled plastic bottles are used for the laces and recycled rubber for the soles.
Isn’t that great? And you can win these shoes! What do you need to do? Send us a picture of your old sneakers and maybe you will be the lucky one who runs off with a pair of new Etnies!
Good luck! Mail your picture, size and preference to hello[AT]strawberryearth.com!
