About VEJA:
5 years on - The world understands that social issues and environmental crisis are now matters of urgency.
Day after day, prophets of all kind are pulling the emergency cord, the entire economy is turning green and sustainable-developementising speeches are spreading around.
Actions remain scarce but words abound.
Beyond movies about the environment, beyond multinational companies building green windows to hide disasters, beyond the Copenhagen speeches filled with words and political promise….
And despite this green-fronted economy, let's try to offer a different vision which combines fair trade and ecology and links together economy, social initiatives and the environment.
A vision that proposes cultural change.



Die Jungs von Veja haben drei Prinzipien: Sie verwenden nur Fair Trade Cotton und Latex, verfolgen ökologische Grundsätze und achten streng darauf, dass die Arbeiterinnen und Arbeiter in ihrer Fabrik im Amazonasgebiet, Brasilien – wo der Kautschuk herkommt - unter den besten Bedingungen produzieren können. Dass ihre Sneakers und Taschen dennoch kein Vermögen kosten, liegt daran, dass Veja kein Geld für Werbekampagnen ausgibt, und nie viel mehr produziert, als von den Boutiquen vorbestellt wurde.
