PRESS RELEASE (Lake Forest, CA) – etnies, the first skateboarder-owned and operated global action sports footwear and apparel company, planted the first seed back in 2011 when it initiated its Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree reforestation program and has since sprouted more than 200,000 trees in Costa Rica and Brazil! Excited to share the news with the world, etnies launched a new microsite and video infographic that tells the whole story behind Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree: http://etnies.com/buyashoeplantatree

By visiting the new Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree microsite on etnies.com, customers can learn how the program works and see how many trees have been planted so far, including their own tree contribution, through the live tree-planting counter. Also, the site’s timeline breaks down the program year-by-year showing, through videos, photography and descriptive text, how this initiative has helped replenish devastated forest communities.

Now in its third year, the Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree program continues to be cultivated. etnies is on track with its 2013 goal of planting 200,000 more trees in Sao Paulo, Brazil through the help of consumers and the brand’s continued reforestation nonprofit partner Trees for the Future.
