Our unique collaboration with Little Sun, a nonprofit organization that brings light to rural communities living without electricity in Africa, celebrates the power of solar energy to change lives. Little Sun’s founder—the contemporary artist Olafur Eliasson—is one of Vivo’s heroes and our shared passion for bringing the majesty of nature to urban settings makes this collaboration a perfect fit.
What’s more, both Vivo Barefoot and Little Sun have been working in Addis Ababa since 2012 supporting projects for a regenerative world and driving change in Ethiopia.
To help extend Little Sun’s reach, the sale of this limited-edition footwear will provide Little Sun solar lamps to communities across East Africa. With the sun on our face and the earth beneath our feet, we look forward to a new decade and radical step change.
Innovators, disruptors, changemakers… from increased study hours to better health. Whether it’s increased opportunity, or removing the harmful impact of dirty fuel – Little Sun believe in universal access to clean energy.
Little Sun lamps, designed by Olafur Eliasson, are great for camping, festivals and kids. And it’s a great tool to get young minds thinking about sustainability and renewable energy. They can be purchased directly from Little Sun.
We’ve been working hand-in-hand with people of Ethiopia almost for 10 years. When you buy Vivos, you support the Livebarefoot Fund, our in-house impact hub reconnecting people and planet fostering partnerships like Little Sun.
