Since 2018, Barcelona-based sneaker brand SAYE, formerly known as Wado, has been designing eco-conscious sneakers in order to help offset the effects of deforestation. Today, the Spanish highflyers of the fashion world with CEO and Co-Founder Marta Llaquet are able to expand their sustainable mission on a global scale. For each pair of shoes that you buy, SAYE plants two trees. But not only that: All sneakers are produced regionally in Portugal and the young company ensures that all workers are paid fairly and treated ethically.
