Ombu Lifestyle: Three Argentinean sisters, Mariel, Marina, and Maria Alemann, all Miami based, started this eco-friendly company with a mission in mind: To build a new generation of conscious consumer. Help our planet and others while offering really comfy and beautiful shoes.
How do they achieve this goal?
Ombu works with Trees for the Future (also one of my favorites!). For every purchase, Ombu is committed to planting a tree in an extremely impoverished country. The mission is to help those in need by providing them with resources for a better life. It all starts with a seed.
Because they change lives. They provide food, forage for animals, and wood for fuel and construction. They increase agricultural yields, improve water infiltration and aquifer recharge, and protect soils from wind and water erosion.
Every pair of shoes comes with a seed for the customer to plant.
This way, two trees are added to the environment for every one pair of eco-friendly shoes!
Naturwrk is really worth a skip and a shout! These unique eco-friendly tshirts and housewares are hand screened & printed in the USA. Most of their tshirts contain organic cotton or eco-friendly materials, and Naturwrk uses ink that contains No Phthalates and No PVC. They donate a portion of our proceeds annually to help the earth. For 2013, 1% of sales this year will go to plenty.org for Kids To The Country, a program that has helped over 2800 disadvantaged children since its founding in1986 by giving them an opportunity to experience and learn about nature in a peaceful environment.
