Our Partnership with One Tree Planted

All of our daily activities generate CO₂ and as a business we generate more than the average person. Our environmental footprint is a primary consideration when designing our collection and we take full responsibility for the impact it has. This is why we are working with One Tree Planted, to offset a proportion of the carbon we generate.

Agricultural expansion, livestock ranching and logging are just three of the reasons for the staggering rate of global deforestation. Trees are important for our planet’s survival, because through photosynthesis, trees capture the CO₂ released into the atmosphere and reduce the greenhouse effect that is the cause of climate change.

The Earth loses 18.7 million acres of forests per year, which is equal to 27 soccer fields every

minute. It is estimated that 15 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions come from deforestation.

As a reforestation partner, we help plant trees in the ground in different areas of the world, including North America, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. For every order we receive, we donate a tree to One Tree Planted.

Trees are responsible for much of the wonderful things we experience in life, clean filtered air, wildlife and ecosystems, paper, the water we drink and much more.

In addition to the tree we plant when you place an order, you can donate additional trees by adding trees to your order.

One Tree Planted

One Tree Planted is a 501c charity with a mission to help global reforestation efforts. The organization is built on a network of individuals, businesses, and schools who either donate monetarily or volunteer to help plant trees around the world.

The charity was founded in 2014 by Matt Hill, and is based out of Shelburne, Vermont. The organization operates in four regions around the world on six different continents.

One Tree Planted works with other NGOs and governmental agencies including the United States Forest Service, World Resources Institute, and several State Forest Services and Regional Conservation Districts.

We plant trees for a better tomorrow

Reforesting projects help to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitats for biodiversity. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.

The Amazon

We are choosing to donate trees to planting projects in the Amazon and Australia.  The Amazon is home to iconic species like the Jaguar, Macaw, Amazon River Dolphin, Black Spider Monkey, and Poison Dart Frog and the Amazon River Basin is a vast region with 1.9 billion acres of rainforest and over 1,100 tributaries — 17 of which are longer than 1,000 miles.

With the world’s largest rainforest ecosystem, it spans 9 countries and is home to almost 30% of plant and animal species on Earth.  The Amazon rainforest holds an estimated 90-140 billion metric tons of carbon and its forests play a critical role in the fight against climate change.

Unfortunately, due to logging, unsustainable agriculture, and forest fires, it’s also a high risk zone for deforestation and degradation. Planting trees in the Amazon Rainforest will help conserve habitat for its iconic wildlife species, provide sustainable livelihoods to local people, and stabilize the climate.
