I'd like to thank the people from all over the world who have contributed to our goal of protecting 100,000,000 square feet of rain forest.

Chipkos today announces the adoption of over one million square feet of rain forest after the first week of its newly launched online storefront hosted by Shopify.

Chipkos Original Sandals are available for men and women in a multi-colored palette that speaks to statement-makers and subtle-supporters alike. For those more interested in form over fashion, Chipkos sandals feature a number of comfort elements such as natural contour moulding, FormCush™ anatomical arch support and CurvUp™ foot bed shaping.

Recently featured in TIME, NY Magazine, Wall Street Journal, NY Times, AOL, Huffington Post, TreeHugger, and Glamour, Chipkos footwear has been lauded as a unique and fashionable approach toward environmental protection.

As part of the Chipkos "Stand for Square Feet" program, each pair of Chipkos Original Sandals purchased results in the adoption of one hundred square feet of the rain forest.

Chipkos sandals have become the wearable and trendy badge for people who support nature conservation, as well as for those who love comfortable footwear. "I'd like to thank the people from all over the world who have contributed to our goal of protecting 100,000,000 square feet of the rain forest," says Chipkos Chief Nature Ambassador, Priya Dua.

To date, the Chipkos rain forest preservation program has been very successful in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, thanks to the involvement of their non-profit partner, SaveNature.Org. "Chipkos represents a real and actionable campaign to purchase and protect endangered rain forest land. We are proud to support this first-of-its-kind program of combining a product with rain forest adoption," says Norm Gershenz, Director of SaveNature.Org.
