Alpargatas, the Brazilian group that owns the Havaianas brand, has converted its production lines to produce clogs for the medical sector. The company will donate 18,000 pairs of shoes designed for use by healthcare professionals in São Paulo hospitals, made in the Havaianas factories in place of flip-flop sandals. Through the Havaianas brand, the footwear group will also donate 100,000 kits of essential products, including Havaianas items, food and hygiene products, to disadvantaged communities in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Brasília and Belo Horizonte.
