One Earth and regenerative footwear brand Vivobarefoot today announced Take One Step for One Earth, a fundraising collaboration for Earth Day. The partnership will raise awareness of on-the-ground climate solutions and drive donations to three Indigenous-led projects.
For Earth Day, Vivobarefoot will unveil co-branded trainers for adults and kids - the One Earth Neo Mint - and will encourage customers to engage with the campaign through social media.
“Vivobarefoot’s mission is one of restoring our connection to the Earth,” said Dulma Clark, head of the Livebarefoot Fund, Vivobarefoot’s in-house impact fund supports programs driving research, innovation, and action in regenerative footwear. “One Earth embodies that spirit and identifies organizations that drive regenerative change. To be reminded that everyone can take one step to solve the climate crisis is the perfect message for Earth Day.”
For Earth Day, funds will be donated to three projects chosen through the One Earth Project Marketplace that are providing meaningful solutions to the climate crisis: The Rainbow Fiber Co-operative, an Indigenous lead Navajo- Churro Wool Cooperative that is preserving biodiversity and traditional Navajo methods; the Agroecology Fund and MELCA, which is reviving Indigenous farming practices to support traditional communities in Ethiopia; and Amazon Frontlines and the Ceibo Alliance, who are pioneering a new model of Indigenous-led conservation in the Upper Amazon.
“Vivobarefoot is a partner that understands the urgency of listening to Indigenous wisdom and uplifting climate solutions,” said Justin Winters, Co-Founder and Executive Director of One Earth. “This collaboration reminds us that making change isn’t a fanciful dream. We’re pragmatic. Our ground-breaking science shows it’s possible to solve the climate crisis with solutions that exist today. It’s the people who are the game-changers – not politicians.”
The United Nations recently noted that it only takes 10-30% of the population taking action to create meaningful change. You can be part of that 10-30%, and support regenerative principles to tackle climate change. Everyone can act to protect and restore the Earth.Take One Step for One Earth
