PLANTING CITRUS TREES, ONE DAY AT A TIME
Imagine a beautiful garden of orange and pomegranate trees in Italy that has a positive environmental, social, and economic impact in the community. What if you could plant your own tree in that garden and track its growth over the years? What if we created a garden together that makes the world a little bit better and a little bit greener, one day at a time?
It’s not just a dream - we’re growing the PROTA FIORI Garden located in the Province of Syracuse in Sicily and we're planting 100 trees for our first 100 customers in our Garden, on us. We’ve partnered with Treedom (a Certified B Corp) to make it happen and we’d love for you to make our dream yours too by letting us help you plant a tree with us.

Our dream is to build a garden of orange and pomegranate trees in the country where our shoes are made, but it’s not just about a beautiful garden - we also want to fight climate change by planting trees to offset our carbon emissions. We invite you to add your own tree to our garden. Together, we can absorb CO2, give back to Italy, and do our part to address climate change in a fruitful, floral kind of way.
Not sure what absorbing CO2 or offsetting carbon emissions means? No problem, check out our dictionary of terms in our Little Black Book here.
