Respect . Protect . Enjoy

The ROOTS logo is one fine example of a human.

Our ancestors wrapped their feet in animal skin for protection. They could carve a sewing needle from a bone, and then use sinews to stitch materials together to stay alive.

They knew where and when to forage for food and materials. They understood the world around them and never stopped imagining solutions to the problems presented in their world; inwardly searching for new and better ways to live.

Can you say the same?
