Famolare is back with the famous wavy soles from the seventies hand-crafted in North America. These shoes and sandals are comfortable, stylish and promote foot health and good posture. You can walk all day in your Famolares. We proudly plant a tree with every order to help restore nature and give back to our planet.

Kenya

Kenya

This site is located within the greater Milihoi channel in Lamu county. It is near Lamu Town, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site with an incredibly rich history. It has mangrove estuaries which are vital to the area’s ecologically diverse bird and marine life.

This area faces a number of challenges, including insufficient social services, very little freshwater, underdeveloped infrastructure, and food shortages. Reforestation work in this region restores mangrove estuaries and helps the local economy reduce food and water insecurity.

This project is part of larger work with regional and national government institutions and the surrounding agricultural and pastoral communities to restore critical forests across Kenya.

Honduras

Honduras

Honduras is a biodiverse nation home to hundreds of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine species of animals and plants, some found nowhere else on Earth. Unfortunately, growth of palm oil production has led to uncontrolled logging, often in protected areas.

Work in this region is done in partnership with La Tigra National Park to produce, plant, and protect forests destroyed by uncontrolled logging. Reforesting this degraded region with native tree species creates sustainable economic opportunities for the indigenous people living there.

Deforestation threatens the lives of the people and wildlife. Restoring these areas is essential to preserving the area’s watershed and biodiversity.

Nepal

Nepal

The Lape planting site comprises 280 hectares of degraded tropical and subtropical forest in the Nawalpur District of Nepal.

Nawalpur District’s landscape is diverse, ranging from the lowland Terai plains to peaks over 1,500 meters in the Churia Hills. The Churia Hills are a transition zone from the lowland Terai plains to the Himalayas.

The nearby villages of Bhadaure, Ruchang, and Naram are home to approximately 400 people, most of whom belong to the indigenous Magar, Gurung, and Chhetri ethnic groups and whose traditional livelihood is livestock farming. The Churia Hills are a working landscape composed of tropical and subtropical forests interspersed with traditional terraced agriculture. The primary drivers of deforestation in this area are landslides on hillslopes, illegal logging for external markets, and over- dependency on fuelwood

Haiti

Haiti

This agroforestry nursery is located in the Belanger community in northern Haiti. Located where the Noir and Massif du Nord Mountain ranges meet the Artibonite Plains of Gonaïves, this region has a dry, neotropical climate with sparse tree cover and rugged topography.

Many forests were initially cleared for logging, grazing, and agriculture during the colonial period, with the intensification of unsustainable charcoal production practices accelerating deforestation in recent years.

The resulting land degradation has had cascading effects on the environment, agricultural productivity, and local livelihoods. Declining soil fertility and topsoil erosion lower farm productivity and can lead to complete farm failure.
