Cariuma is a sneaker brand founded by two former footwear industry executives. They felt it vital to reinvent the sneaker game and reshape the industry by example—to better serve people and the planet through transparency, positivity, and a constant evolution mindset. From Day 1, Cariuma set out to balance profit and purpose, by centering customers, teammates, partners, and the environment as equal stakeholders. Rooted in the culture and ethos of surfing and skateboarding, they create comfortable, timeless sneakers with an increased lifespan. They prioritize a sustainable production model, from responsible design and materials sourcing, to ethical manufacturing and delivery via single-box, 100% recycled packaging. Since June 2020, they have committed to planting two trees for every pair of shoes they sell. Cariuma’s in-house reforestation program is central to their mission of restoring the biodiversity and carbon-capturing potential of rainforests. In October 2020, they began their work in the Brazilian rainforest—a coastal biome stretching from northeast to southern Brazil—which has lost over 87% of its forest canopy to deforestation. P.S. Did you know? Cariuma is the first B Corp whose products were worn by medalists in the Olympic Games!
