Wildling Shoes

Founded in 2015, Wildling Shoes creates, produces and distributes shoes for children and adults with an emphasis on minimalism, designed to help wearers develop healthier, stronger feet.

Maintaining top-of-mind awareness of their ecological responsibility as a manufacturing company is their basic prerequisite for this objective.

In 2021, Wildling Shoes and Rewilding Europe kicked-off their partnership with an initial focus on advancing rewilding in the Rhodope Mountains of Bulgaria. Wildling Shoes will financially support Rewilding Europe’s rewilding efforts over the next five years, through 1% For the Planet.

As part of the collaboration, Rewilding Europe and Wildling Shoes will explore the production of raw materials for the company’s footwear, with a focus on flax, hemp and nettle.

Exodus Travels

Exodus Travels is a UK-based adventure travel company that was founded more than 45 years ago. Exodus Travels recognises that there is an urgent climate emergency and is committed to becoming an advocate within the travel industry for protecting and restoring the planet. In 2020, Exodus Travels was one of the founding signatories of the ‘Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency’ pledge, dedicating time to proactively change how the company measures, reduces and mitigates its carbon footprint. The company further committed to a science-based target of halving its carbon footprint per passenger by 2030.

Starting in 2021, a new partnership between Rewilding Europe and Exodus Travels will support the rewilding of land in five wildlife corridors in the Central Apennines rewilding area. Exodus Travels will launch and fund a “Nature and Carbon Corridors” project, through which a minimum of 100m2 of land will be rewilded for every passenger that books a trip with the company. This will support the ongoing development of the wildlife corridors in the rewilding area, thereby promoting biodiversity, locking up atmospheric carbon and indirectly supporting the growth of a local nature-based economy.

Patagonia

Patagonia is an American outdoor clothing and gear company. Patagonia gives 1% of its annual sales to support environmental organisations around the world. The company has donated $89 million towards environmental work since it started its grants programme in 1985. In 2018, Rewilding Europe received an $8000 grant, which was awarded by the  Patagonia Grants Council. The grant is used for restoration of ponds in the Velebit rewilding area in Croatia. These are a vital resource for increasing local wildlife populations, especially in the dry summer months, until greater connectivity has been established between drier parts of the Croatian mountain range and natural freshwater sources.
