Sustainability

Our holistic approach embraces social transformation and environmental conservation through the use of sustainable materials in fashion and product design. We support local producers whose economic activities are integrated with the sustainable use of natural resources. 

 

From making a living out of wild rubber production, residents protect large areas of the native Amazon rainforest. Local populations exert political influence over preserved natural areas. Supporting the rainforest micro-economies means avoiding deforestation, mining, and cattle ranching. It also means engaging with knowledge about local fauna and flora.

In a sentence, it is to act in pro of the Amazon rainforest and the whole planet.​

Preservation

Biodiversity and Social Impact

The TEA, FDL, FSA, and MBS are new materials of social innovation in the Amazon rainforest. They are opportunities for better income generation by local communities within an eco-friendly system of crafting rubber. The production influences the inclusion of women and young adults in the chain, feeding the sustainability cycle.

IIn the next two years, with the company's expansion project, our goal is to triple our impact, increasing the number of beneficiary extractive families and expanding the preserved areas. In addition, with the help of the subsidiary, the company will create between 5 and 8 new jobs.

Watch the video about the FSA (Folha Semi-Artefato) process production in the Amazon rainforest. It features the artisan and rubber tapper José Rodrigo de Araújo’s story and shows the social transformation and positive impact of this production. Amongst many projects led by our CEO Flavia Amadeu, in this one she worked to help him improve and implement a sustainable FSA process and adapt his artisanal shoes to commercialization, reaching national and international markets. Today, José and his family are true entrepreneurs of the rainforest.
