Veja, the "fair trade sneaker", is Sébastien Kopp et François-Ghislain Morillon's answer to the question :
is another world possible ?
Those sneakers are made from bio/fair trade coton and rubber from the nordeste of Bresil and the production is tied up to local cooperatives. Read more on the website (in French, though). A very nice concept and business that tries to make a difference and has already seduced several rockheads from the UK! And if it's brit, you know it's hip!
