Brazilian shoe company Jinga has been making environmentally friendly shoes for the last five years. Designed to be agile enough for Brazilian dance and capoeira, the name Jinga comes from the Portuguese word Ginga, which means A way of moving that’s creative, fluid, graceful, and highly individual. All Jinga shoes are environmentally friendly, and also vegan. This Summer, Jinga is stepping up their ethical responsibility with even bigger contributions to the environment, working conditions, and the animals. The SS11 collection now carries the Amanha Mais Feliz stamp, signifying their participation in an environmental project to improve sustainability in both industry and the community. They are participating in the project by recycling 100% of waste at a facility that creates jobs and generates money for local schools and community groups. The Amanha Mais Feliz project also runs outreach programs in environmental education and sponsors an animal refuge for endangered species rescued from animal traffickers.
The SS11 collection features the same agility, style, and durability as previous styles, but now carries the Brazilian Government’s green seal and is contains only materials sourced from locally in Brazil. See the new styles for men, women, and kids at their Jinga’s online store - Jingashop.com
