Getting involved outdoors: Gear to Grow
October 17, 2011 by Jamie Page
VIVOBAREFOOT is donating 650 pairs of the Evo shoes to Gear To Grow. The Gear To Grow Program permits outdoor retailers and manufacturers to donate gear for the benefit of educating the public and getting more people involved and excited about outdoor recreation.
At VIVOBAREFOOT, we are always increasing the quality of our environment and promoting health and movement. From the beginning, design for sustainability was at the core of the company’s philosophy. All shoes have been rated against a public eco-matrix that qualitatively details the impact of each design. VIVOBAREFOOT is eager to partner with Gear To Grow and hopefully get more people involved in the great outdoors.
