Hi everyone! Yesterday, to my great dismay, blogger was down! So I couldn’t post, which I was very sad about, I’m sorry guys. I’m back now though so yay!
I thought today I would post this look featuring my Lily Cole Sky Rainforest Rescue trainers, I love a good cause and this is most definitely one of them! In june I was lucky enough to attend the launch and meet Lily herself! I’ve always been a fan of her since I was about 12, and I was so happy to discover that she is super lovely in real life!! (She said she liked my platform shoes yay!) Anyway, Lily is the ambassador for Sky Rainforest Rescue who are an organisation who, for all intents and purposes, are saving the rainforest! One of the main ways which they are helping is by providing the local rainforest people of a way to make a living from the rainforest, without cutting it down. One of these is by extracting wild rubber! This brings me back to these trainers, the soles of the shoes are made with wild rubber, which is bought from the Rubber Tappers for a good price by a French shoe company called Veja. Veja uses Amazonian rubber for all its footwear and they also made the Lily Cole x Rain Forest Rescue trainers! I believe they have sold out in most places but I’ve discovered they are available on Sarenza along with the rest of the range! Did I mention for every pair sold £10 goes to rainforest rescue? I bet this sounds very sale-like of me, but I think its a really good cause, you can read more about it on the SRR website and theres also a behind the scenes video of the shoot which Lily did which I’ll embed below!
