What if the UNIL sheep were not just symbols of biodiversity on campus and could do "more" than maintain the UNIL's green spaces? What if the wool from UNIL sheep could be recycled to create a product that we all need?

UNIL and Baabuk have decided to take this step. Discover UNIL sneakers!

Our pre-sale goal was exceeded, but you can still order your shoes. We have enough wool from the Dorigny sheep! Take part in this unique experience and place an order to wear Dorigny wool at your feet.

Delivery comes with black and blue laces to change your style according to your mood

★★★★★ "Baabuk shoes are the best. These are by far my favorite shoes of all time -- incredibly comfortable, durable, and so convenient to just slip on. I have abandoned all my other shoes and only wear Baabuk shoes now. Try them. You will absolutely cherish them."
- John H. (29 Apr 2021)

★★★★★ "The shoes are incredibly comfortable and beautifully made. My daughter tried to claim them as her own!! Also, great customer service - responsive and generous. I will buy from them again for sure."

★★★★★ "I really love my Baabuk Urban Woolers. They are very well made and comfortable. I especially love that they are made with natural latex and wool, and are made in Portugal. I feel like I can trust Baabuk to be making good labor and environmental choices."

UNIL and sustainability

Did you know that the Dorigny campus is certified « 2000 watts in transformation » ? This distinction granted by the Federal Office of Energy after an accreditation and audit process validates the efforts made by UNIL, as well as its plans to continue to make the Dorigny campus a pioneering site.

According to a classification carried out by theWWF, which took into account 28 Swiss universities, UNIL is in second place in terms of sustainability.

Today:

  • All of the electricity used on campus comes from sustainable and local sources.
  • n our parks and gardens, no chemicals are used.
  • Our 77 hectares of green spaces not only welcome the sheep, but also the Ferme de Bassenges team who is currently carrying out a diversified agriculture project including market gardening, livestock farming, and agroforestry – association of arboriculture and field crops.
  • And much more! https://www.unil.ch/durable/engagements

You have seen this wool growing on the backs of sheep. Now it's up to you to cover your feet with it to show them other pastures!

Many thanks to Bob Martin (the shepherd) and to www.eco-pature.ch for this collaboration.
