Leonardo DiCaprio sports Allbirds sneakers following investment in the sustainable footwear brand

He invested in Allbirds, a sustainable footwear brand, just weeks ago. 

And on Wednesday, Leonardo DiCaprio was spotted sporting the brand’s ‘tree runners,’ which are made from eucalyptus fibers. 

‘I am proud to join the company as an investor,’ the 43-year-old actor said in a statement on August 1. ‘Creating sustainable consumer products requires a deep commitment from brands that understand the role they have in helping solve our environmental crisis.’

Leonardo continued: ‘Allbirds is on the forefront of developing new materials that will serve as a model for the footwear industry. This kind of innovation is crucial for creating a more sustainable future.’ 

Along with Allbirds, the Titanic star invested in several other companies over the summer including Kingo Energy, a Guatemalan company that aims to ‘eradicate energy poverty,’ and Califia Farms, a plant-based milk brand. 

DiCaprio’s eco-conscious foundation has donated more than $80 million dollars to sustainable ventures since its inception in 1998.

While trying to save the planet, Leonardo has also been busy filming Once Upon A Time In Hollywood—a Quentin Tarantino film.

The movie follows actor Rick Dalton, played by DiCaprio, and his stunt double, played by Brad Pitt, as they attempt to make a name for themselves in the film industry.

The main story runs parallel to the murder of actress Sharon Tate, played by Margot Robbie, who, along with four friends, was slain by Charles Manson’s cult followers.
