How to give back by shopping for some new Birkenstock’s! The 1-for-1 plant a tree initiative from Bstore and why you need to get on it.
BIRKENSTOCK’S THAT GIVE BACK
My favourite minimal sandals and why they are now helping to give back to reforestation projects around Australia with Bstore.
THE SHOES MAKING MY FEET VERY HAPPY
Prepare to witness my favourite new Birkenstock’s over & over! Both of these beauties have barely left my feet since I picked them up. Seriously, they have been on mad rotation and my feet are very happy about it. My go-to for Birkenstock’s is Bstore. Bstore is the largest independent Birkenstock retailer in Australia. I’ve now collected six pairs of Birkenstock’s so it’s safe to say, I wear them every day. Some of those pairs have lasted me over seven years and are still going strong.
THE BSTORE 1-FOR-1 PLANT A TREE INITIATIVE
Even better? I’m so proud of the 1-for-1 tree campaign Bstore launched for their 20th anniversary where for every shoe purchase they will plant a tree. I went to their event recently launching the initiative and was so happy to hear about why it was so important to them.
Reforestation projects around Australia include areas that were affected by the bushfires, while other areas are being cleared too often for agriculture & farming. Globally, projects include planting native trees in Africa & fruit trees for locals to sell in markets. The project will result in thousands of trees being planted through reforestation projects in WA, NSW, VIC, and Africa.
HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Essential initiatives like this one from Bstore can add up to make the biggest improvements for wildlife, our climate & for us. Seriously, as much as I love fashion, its impacts on our environment are not impressive at all. Every little bit we can do to create & support projects like this one adds up to make significant changes. So, a cool pair of shoes to wear for years? Absolutely. Making a little difference that adds up to a bigger one? Even better.
Get on it!
