For every Gurus product you buy, we'll plant a tree.
Sustainability is at the heart of what we do, so we wanted to reduce our impact, while working to plant trees that will last a lifetime. Trees not only are the source of Gurus, but they also support the environment, animals and people.
We partnered with Trees for the Future, a non-profit that plants trees with rural communities in the developing world, enabling them to restore their environment, grow more food, and build a sustainable future. Trees for the Future not only enables us to plant new trees, but to help teach sustainable farming practices that help to ensure that these trees will be there for years to come.
How it Works:
You purchase a Gurus product from our website or retailers around the world.
We tally up the number of sandals sold and make donations to our nonprofit partners, covering the cost of trees.
Your purchase ends up providing seeds or saplings for trained partner farmers.
As your tree grows, so do its benefits to the environment and the community that cares for it.

It may sound daunting, but if we work together, we can plant One Million Trees to improve our planet for generations.

Our partner, Trees for the Future, doesn't just plant trees for ecological benefits, but to benefit people and help communities create, integrate and take care of sustainable land-use systems. By training and educating communities, we achieve improved soil quality, higher crop yields and improved standards of living.
