Act Intentionally Film Series

Allbirds invites you to Act Intentionally:

At Allbirds, we believe in making better things in a better way. We are on a mission to prove that comfort, design and sustainability aren’t mutually exclusive by making premium footwear from renewable materials, designed for everyday life. We launched our first product in March 2016, the Wool Runner, which was dubbed “the world’s most comfortable shoe” by TIME Magazine. Allbirds has gone on to sell over a million pairs of shoes in our first two years of business and we continue to introduce new proprietary sustainable materials, including Tree made from eucalyptus fibre and SweetFoam™ derived from renewable sugarcane.

The journey to making better things in a better way is a long one, and we’re just getting started. In celebration of Earth Day, join us as we showcase a series of films about humans’ interaction with nature and how these decisions impact the environment.

Maxima standing in a field RIVER SILENCE
