DaCosta Verde x You
Reforesting the Amazon together
At DaCosta Verde, we are on a mission to create a healthy and harmonious relationship between fashion, people, and the planet. And to stay true to our mission, we've joined forces with S.O.S Amazônia to launch a mini-capsule collection called We Are Amazônia. Designed with Mother Nature in mind, the collection is responsibly made in Brazil with an eco-conscious fabric.
The main purpose of the We Are Amazônia campaign is to bring greater awareness about the importance of the rainforest in our lives and to make a positive impact by restoring the Brazilian Amazônia through our products and our tree planting initiative. We will plant five trees for each tee gifted or purchased. Join us in our mission to plant 5,000 trees by the end of the campaign.
Our connection to the Amazon goes back to our founder, Mäby Dutra, who was born and raised in Brazil. The rainforest has been an important part of her life. It has been an inspiration to her and changed her way of thinking as it relates to Mother Nature. So, the least we could do is honor the rainforest that holds a special place in our hearts.
Considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, The Amazon is considered the lungs of the Earth. It's also known as the giant air conditioner that cools the planet. Home of 30 million people and the biggest biodiversity, it's contemplated as the world's largest land carbon sink and remaining tropical rainforest. Amazonian trees and plants provide 6-9% of the world’s oxygen, and the rainforest plays a crucial role in regulating Earth's climate system. Sadly, the rainforest has changed and is no longer as we once knew it. Global Warming, Climate Change, and especially deforestation have changed the rainforest. In 2020, deforestation destroyed the equivalent of more than two football pitches per minute. Let's keep the Rainforest standing for a cooler planet.
We are a women-founded and led lifestyle brand. Our core values are curated with thoughtful intention and mindfulness from the early design stages. We aim to eradicate environmental disruption across value chains by utilizing the resources we have direct access to (suppliers, fabrics, packaging). Simply, we are starting small with the tools we have and plan to scale as sustainably and ethically as possible.
