EACH PAIR OF SAOLAS PROTECT 25m2 OF NATURAL HABITAT IN DANGER
A Worldwide Leader: 1% FOR THE PLANET has donated more than 200 million euros worldwide since 2002.
Another decisive step in favor of biodiversity is Saola's membership in the international business group 1% FOR THE PLANET, launched in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia and Black Diamond.
In concrete terms, our membership translates into the payment of 1% of our turnover to associations approved by the collective.
Among them, Saola has chosen to actively support WORLD LAND TRUST.
Committed to the protection of ecosystems, this association deploys the WLT's "Buy An Acre" program in the four corners of the world and has already helped protect more than 56,000 hectares of forests, wetlands, springs and rivers.
By preventing deforestation, combating desertification and encouraging the restoration of degraded habitats, these projects benefit the global climate, increase resilience to climate-related hazards and counteract biodiversity loss.
Saola is involved in this program in Patagonia, Brazil and Kenya. And so are the people who wear our shoes!
