The Earth Day Oca is only available through April 30th and is made to order, meaning when you click “Add to Cart” the shoe will be made just for you. This leaves no waste and no unclaimed sneakers, making for a much more environmentally friendly production process. And while Cariuma always has a Pair-for-Pair program (i.e. you buy sneakers, the brand plants two trees in the Brazilian rainforest), the brand is increasing its initiative by planting 10 trees per pair sold until the end of the month. .

Available to order in Mirren-approved green and a classic sand beige, the limited-edition sneaker shares most of the same features you’ve come to know and love about the brand’s shoes, such as the comfortable (and machine-washable ) sneakers. canvas upper and the memory foam insole which is made from a mix of cork, bio memory foam and organic mamona oil.

The main differences? The limited-edition Oca has a springy sole that is actually made of rubber, rather than the usual sugar cane. Bloom is made with algae, “an infinitely renewable resource that we used to create an especially lightweight outsole,” according to the brand. You’ll also find a special message that says “Stand up for Mother Earth” on the side of the shoes, a friendly reminder that everyone should do their part to live more environmentally friendly – not just on Earth Day, but every day.
